for gil -christ's sakes

it is time.
adam gilchrist retires from cricket.
a pure sporting hero. my hero. in the garry sobers mould.

he is one of 2 people because of which australia became my favourite team. shane warne was the other.
while warne is a maverick genius, gilly is a crafted genius.
time to move on.

cricket watching is likely to fall.

Good for India, Gilly is ruthless...:)
We have bought an online package, so thankfully we can see the Australia series. Somehow i have always missed watching Aus tour of India. Not this time though.

v - good for you. the ODI series kicks off shortly. gilly has been the most ruthless and truthful entertainer.

am proud that my 2 references of gilly (beign in sobers mould and a crafted genius) is shared by peter roebuck.
