Gilly – Thanks for the memories…


I am stating the obvious here – Indians love their cricket. Cricket in India is not a sport – it is a religion. Actually it is a bit more than that – and that is what prompts extreme behaviour whether it is burning effigies or building shrines. They also love great cricketers, whether they play for India or the opposition – and one of the cricketers they will truly miss after this summer is Adam Craig Gilchrist.

“Gilly” is not only admired for his great stroke play and ability to change the game on its head, but also his sportsmanship. If you ask the Aussies, what they would like to see in a test against India, they would probably say a century for Tendulkar, but a victory for Australia. The Indians would probably say a quick fire fifty by Gilchrist and a win for India 🙂 (We generally don’t like to see a hundred from Gilchrist – it usually means Australia would win the game!)

We will surely miss you, when you leave the game, Gilly! Thanks for the memories…
