Fair dinkum mate, why the hell shouldn't we love it?
Last i noticed he was playing for the Australian side.!

He's taken a couple of great catches as he has done many times before, and
he's going to take many more great catches. But it's the extraordinary
amount of catches/stumpings that he doesn't take that separates him from
most of the rest, and the thing is that a good majority of those misses have
been straight forward..some quite embarrassing.

Of what i've seen he's kept well in this match. Lets hope he keeps it up.

Cheers

Gilchrist is a rare talent, a one in a generational player.
Source former captain S Waugh.

Gilchrist is the only keeper in test history of any nation to average
more than 4 dismissals per match for 200 or more dismissals.

Gilchrist now is the first captain to win in India since B Lawry.

The Gilchrist knockers have to come up with something to justify their
existence on the planet. They are often people who are jelious of
anyone with talent. There were S Waugh haters, Border haters and even
Bradman haters. These people hate life. They have had it bad so make
everyone else feel bad or put them down any way they can to get
attention. Quite sad really.

Gilly is loved, adored in India and most places around the world.
Australia suffers from the tall poppy sydrome is thgis country more
than any other country. We have become a country of knocking anyone
that dares to make a go of it. Does not say much about this country.

Recently we had some friends stay from the UK. They read the letters
to the editor and made the comment that we Aussies whinge on just
about everything and they wondered why because we live in a much
better enviromeny where living is so much easier than in most
countries.

In years gone by it was more whinging poms. These days its whinging
Aussies.

I love watching this Australian cricket team and enjoy watching every
player on their day creaming the opposition.

Why can't we enjoy watching the whole team instead of bickering over
players from different states. Its more to do with interstate
bickering over everything else.

I would have thought playing for Australia that every person in oz
wether they come from the east or the west coast would barrack for the
whole Aust team.

And this coming from one of Australia's three best ever Cricketers.

Correct.

Undeniable fact. It's Gilchrist's teams. No one elses. Like Andrew Ryan
will be credited as Canterbury captain for winning the 2004 Premiership.

Lets give Australia some slack here. The hatred towards Gilchrist stems
purely from one state. The folk in NSW, WA, SA and VIC all admire
Gilchrist for his talents and cheer him on at every opportunity.

The sad part about it all is that Gilchrist's biggest admirer is none
other than Ian Healy and he is in constant praise and support of
Gilchrist and his work ethic. The Healy supporters in here refuse to
hear that from one of their own and do more harm than good to Healy's
career and achievements. It's 59 Tests since Healy last played for
Australia but they still bleat and go on like he should still be in the
side.

It's all interstate politics and all about how Healy was removed from
both the ODI and Test sides.

i'm just damn lucky i have had the fortune to watch such an awesome
cricketer who gives me immense pleasure on my tv screen and the couple of
games i go to see at the G. interstate politics can fuck off, i'm aussie and
support the aussies at cricket, thats it. and i'm very proud of our
keeper/batsman/captain who pulled off an amazing achievement.

Exactly. It has been an amazing achievement and we're lucky to be in the
same era as one of the all-time great Cricketers. I've seen Allan
Border, Steve Waugh, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Adam Gilchrist. They
all hold their own as elite players in any era.

I used to envy my late Grandfather because he saw Bradman, McCabe,
O'Reilly and Grimmett whereas the only great current player at the time
of my Grandfathers death was Border. He died just after the 1993 Ashes
Tour and never got to see much of Warne. He always told me how great leg
spinners were and he also saw Benaud as well.

Steve Waugh ranks alongside Bradman and Miller. He is on par with them
as our top three ever players.

Border is our greatest ever run scorer in Tests, captained Australia in
93 Tests getting us through a dark era and was the backbone of our
Cricket side.

Warne has reshaped spin bowling and his record speaks for itself.
McGrath certainly compares against Lillee and probably even rates better
than him in many aspects.

Of course there is Gilchrist. His record as a wicket keeper
statistically places him as the best we've had.

Gilchrist 59 Tests, 253 Dismissals, 4.29 Average
Marsh 96 Tests, 355 Dismissals, 3.70 Average
Healy 119 Tests, 395 Dismissals, 3.32 Average

Gilchrist will get his 396th Dismissal in his 93rd Test. If Gilchrist is
to play 119 Tests than he'll end up with 510 Dismissals.

Than of course Gilchrist's batting comes into the equation, which sets
him apart from all other keepers before him. He's also changed the way
the game is played.

On top of these five elite players, we've had some champion players like
David Boon, Mark Taylor, Ian Healy, Mark Waugh, Ricky Ponting, Matthew
Hayden, possibly Jason Gillespie and when it comes to just ODI's than
throw in Michael Bevan. Also some outstanding performers, it's been a
special era for Australian Cricket since Border got us through the rebel
tour mess, the decline of Hughes, the Lawson injury and big three
retirements that saw Australia enter into a huge hole.

Adam Gilchrist is one of the most special talents Australia has ever had
and if people want to say what stood Steve Waugh as captain above Mark
Taylor than you can easily say that Waugh had Gilchrist and Taylor didn't.

S.Waugh was very lucky to have a great and stable side. Taylor had an
outstanding bowling side but Australia never settled on a 3 and 6 until
Ponting and Martyn settled themselves into those spots in 2001.

Matt.

If the bowlers continue to bowl as well as they have, anything's possible
As long as he doesn't consistently fluff chances along the way, I'd be happy
with whatever total he ends up with.

No, most of these so called 'Gilchrist knockers' that i've noticed in this
ng are only reponding to claims by others that he's the best wicketkeeper(as
in keeping skills) we've had since Moses parted the Red Sea.
And most of these so called 'Gilchrist knockers' are just quite simply
pointing out the fact that he has missed an extraordinary amount of chances
over his Test career.
But i glad to see that their seems to be a change in tune..well at least in
one

Most of those "knockers" only respond to the claim that he's the best keeper
since sliced bread (from what i've seen). They are only pointing out the
fact of the huge amount of chances that Gilly has missed over his career.
Don't get me wrong, I like Gilchrist but he when he retires he's only gonna
be remembered for his legendary batting skills unless if he starts getting
the straight foward chances presented and thats not much to ask at all.

Another weird point is that he goes on about "supporting players no matter
where they came from" yet he trolls on as if 2-3 people from a internet
board "represents" a whole state and yet he does the same thing himself to
other players (ie jumping on and off the bandwagon and claiming that he's a
(player's name) supporter the whole way)

Cheers.

Christ! There's a big chance the trophy could suffer a Laurie Daley
then. Repairers on red-alert!

Oh and btw, are you a freelance idiot? Or are you in someone's pay?

i'm quite aware that the trophy is not being presented until the end of the
4th test. still doesnt change the fact the gilly knockers can screw off.

Yep, Gilly has really showed his detractors in this series. He's
easily been the best keeper on show.
