A wicketkeeper, who is also one of the strongest contenders for the best batsman in the world, walks with the name Adam Gilchrist. Australian cricket owes its present dominance to this keeper-batsman. Adam Gilchrist is an adventurous batsman and quite generously allows the spectators to partake of the adventure. Adam Gilchrist is one of the most destructive batsmen in the world. His strike rate in ODIs is dangerously close to 100 while the average is nearing 50. Adam Gilchrist took over the gloves from Ian Healy who retired in 1999-2000 season. His debut was in the series against Pakistan in Brisbane. He trumpeted his arrival with a blistering 149 in the second test, which helped steer the test Australia's way. Adam Gilchrist ranks this inning as one his favorites. The other favorite being the 212-ball double century he made against South Africa in January 2002.

Adam Gilchrist's batting prowess remains unquestioned in its brilliance, a shade of doubt though does fall on his competence as a keeper. Adam Gilchrist was briefly offered the captaincy of the Australian before being relieved by his teammate Ricky Ponting. gives information on Adam Gilchrist and other Great Cricket Players.
