- Former vice-captain, wicket-keeper-batsman Adam Gilchrist was one of the world's most exciting cricketers.
- In 2008 Adam Gilchrist announced his retirement from International cricket. He will play in the newly formed Indian Premier 20/20 league.
Behind the stumps, Gilchrist is reliable, enthusiastic and athletic. With the bat, he is one of the game's foremost attacking stroke-makers and he has a relish for punishing loose bowling that makes him an especially enjoyable cricketer to watch. There are not too many players in the sport who are his equal in either respect.
