Gilly in new walking shock


The controversy over Adam Gilchrist’s walking crusade deepened today
when the Australian wicketkeeper appealed loudly for his own dismissal.

Playing in the Second Test against New Zealand in Adelaide, Gilchrist
was batting when he was struck halfway up the pad, in line with the off
and middle stumps.

The Australian No. 7 leapt into the air, screaming “How-izzzz-he???” and
then charged down the wicket to bearhug fast bowler Craig McMillan as
umpire Steve Bucknor’s finger went up.

He strode happily from the field, stopping only to high five several of
the Kiwi fieldsmen.

It’s the second time in his Test career that Gilchrist has been out for 98.

Australian captain Ricky Ponting admitted that he would have preferred
Gilchrist not to take part in the appeal that led to the vice-captain’s
demise.

“Gilly has his own views on all this and I suppose we have to respect
that but I can’t help but wonder if Clarko, myself and Marto would have
been given out if Gilly hadn’t been at the non-striker’s end, roaring
that it was out.”

When exciting youngster Michael Clark was given out LBW, the stump-
microphone picked up Gilchrist muttering to Bucknor: “Oh yeah, plumb and
half way up!”

Ponting was caught in the deep as Gilchrist yelled: “Catch it, catch it,
catch it!!!” and Damien Martyn fell when Gilchrist asked the umpires for
a third umpire calling on a close run out.

Meanwhile, in unrelated news, several more former Australian stars have
expressed their concern at a senior member of the Australian team
displaying ethics and honesty in the heat of battle.

“This whole walking thing is just crap,” said one or the other of the
Chappells, joining a couple of ex-keepers and several fast bowling types
in condemning Gilchrist’s actions.

“Where does he get off, showing the kind of sportsmanship that should
have disappeared with the Invincibles in 1948? Everybody knows that if
you snick it and the umpire is not sure, you and stay there. Gilchrist
has no right to sleep so well at night and what about the example to our
kiddies? I mean, I ask you.”

You really are a fucking idiot. That notwithstanding, that is probably the
funniest post I've ever seen. I have no idea how I managed to type all of
this because the piss is running down the chair...

It is true, apparently gilly while standing at nonstrikers end, has
now started to sledge the batsman on other end as well.

Gilly has also started sledging himself. He even called himself an Ozzie

It's a good story. However the notion that Bucknor would uphold the lbw
appeal against Gilchrist lacks credibility.
