Sharing lunch with Adam Gilchrist was quite surreal- no relation to set the record straight!
Adam…not Darryll, in his day was the world’s top opening batsman, wicket keeper and the most exciting batsman to watch.
He holds many records for bat and glove including most dismissals by a wicket keeper.
He was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame plus Sport Australia Hall of Fame- how incredible is that?!
These days, Adam forges forward with his astute commentary on the Big Bash & Fox Sports.
Something I realised sitting next to him at lunch, is what a generous, welcoming person Adam is.
A true sportsman and great ambassador for cricket and Australia. Someone to truly look up to as a person.
The function sponsors, Suncorp, put us together for the obvious reasons, but I was honoured to have been so lucky with the seating arrangements.
Can you really have Two many Gilly's?
