People were able to see the glimpses of the old Adam Gilchrist the other day at Lord’s during the match between MCC and the rest of the World XI.
The Australian left hander came to open the innings for the Rest of the World XI. His opening partner was the Indian legend Virender Sehwag.
The crowd greeted both of them with huge cheers as they were making their way onto the ground.
Both Gilchrist and Sehwag started going after the bowlers from the word go as per their nature. The boundaries started flowing.
Gilchrist, in particular, was very aggressive. Anything marginally short outside the off stump, he was pouncing on that. He hit a total of 4 fours in one over of Shaun Tait.
