  1. adam is a legend for sure! you guys should definately pick up his autobiography “True Colours”.
    he tells about why he knelt down in emotion after getting his century. I loved and respected him alot before i read it, after it he is my absolute idol. Love ya Gilly!

  2. @tkw251070 HOW DID MARTYN RETIRE TOO LATE?? HE WAS STILL PLAYING WELL AND WAS AT THE END OF HIS PRIME, HE RETIRED BECAUSE OF PERSONNEL REASONS

  3. Great knock – I remember watching this on Sky in London. Gilly taking pot-shots at the Gold sign like he was batting in a training session.

  4. @ratboy2342 i’m not sure if you meant to ask martyn’s overall score in this game or how many he made in the partnership with gilly. martyn scored 133 out of 338 runs scored while he was at the wicket…of these, 21 were made in partnership with steve waugh and the remaining 317 with gilchrist. hope that answers your question somewhat.

  5. n the history of the game i think gilchrist has played 2 of maybe the top 1o test innings his 149 no in his second test against pakistan australia chasing 369 against a attack consisting of akram waqar younis aktar and his 121 against india in his first test in india with australia 5 for 90 and a wicket spinning almost square a once in a generation player in my mind and the most destructive player since viv richards was at his peak

  6. 6:36 the reaction says it all. but his mate were disappointed. they wanted to spend it before he got it

  7. @Gillysbiggestfan I remember reading an interview with him when he said that during the home series against either Sri Lanka or India (can’t remember) he dropped a regulation catch behind the stumps and that was the moment when he made up his mind to quit.

  8. On reaching my ton, I did not know whether to jump for joy or give a determined up yours to the crowd and whomever it was who had started the rumour. In the end, I had no control over my reaction. I simply ran off the wicket, raised my bat to acknowledge the team and the support staff, felt the emotions bubble up and squatted with my head down. It was the first time I remember crying on the cricket field. From the book “Walking to Victory” by Adam Gilchrist. What a brilliant innings!
