Gilly’s Greatness

Adam Gilchrist the next Don Bradman?
If you do not follow cricket, you will be asking “Who is Adam Gilchrist? Who is Don Bradman?” Then you will be saying “Who cares.”
If you do follow cricket, you will likely be debating whether the statement is true.
For what it’s worth, I think Adam Gilchrist is one of the best cricketers of all time. He scores faster than Colin Farell on a night on the town, yet manages to maintain a high batting average. He is also one of the most unselfish players out there. He does not safeguard his wicket to increase his batting average, but rather plays his shots for the good of the team.
In addition, he plays in accordance with his moral principles. An example of this is his proclivity to walk without waiting for the umpire’s signal, when he believes he is out. I cannot recall any other player in the history of the game to have done this.
Many people look up to their sporting idols, as if these sportspeople are not only skilled and talented athletes, but are also good people. This is not always the case. With Gilly, I am sure it is.
