one of the most honest cricketers
Gilchrist is also called the most honest cricketer in the world. Actually, this is because the Sri Lankan bowler made a strong appeal against Adam Gilchrist in the semi-final match of the 2003 World Cup. But the umpire did not give him out. Gilchrist knew that he was out. So he went back to the pavilion despite being given not out by the umpire. That’s why he is called the most honest cricketer.

3 time world champion team
Adam Gilchrist has been a part of the champion team 3 times. He scored a half-century against Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup final. Australia won easily in this match. In the 2003 World Cup against India, Gilchrist also scored a half-century in the final match. In the same 2007 ODI World Cup, Australia won the World Cup title for the fourth time. He scored a century in the 2007 final against Sri Lanka. He played an inning of 149 runs in 104 balls. He was also elected ‘Player of the Match’ in this match.
