A dashing lefthander, Gilchrist is currently playing his 96th test match. “Thank you to all my team mates and support staff who have given me the most enjoyable, fun career anyone could hope for and to the many officials and opponents I have come across.”. Australia's wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist (C) is congratulated by Stuart Clark (L) as team mate Mitchell Johnson moves in after Gilchrist broke South African Mark Boucher's world record for the most test dismissals by a wicketkeeper during the second day of their fourth and final test match against India at the Adelaide Oval January 25, 2008.
A purist in the truest sense, Adam Gilchrist couldn’t cope up with the fact that he dropped an easy catch of VVS Laxman during the Adelaide Test against India in 2008.

The 36-year-old from Western Australia has captained Australia both in tests and one-day cricket and his record in the abbreviated form of the game is equally as imposing. So it was pretty easy to get out of there and say that’s me done for a while,” summed up Gilchrist. Copyright © HT Digital Streams Ltd.

He is the fifth senior Australian player to retire in the past 14 months, following Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Justin Langer and Damien Martyn. Gilchrist said he was quitting test cricket after the current match against India ends at Adelaide Oval on Monday and one-day internationals at the end of the forthcoming triangular series against India and Sri Lanka. “As far as retiring at the right time I always felt like I rather retire and people say as oppose to play on and people say why haven’t you retired.

He has been a great adornment to the game of cricket and his statistics with bat and gloves speak for themselves,” O’Connor said. He has also taken 414 test dismissals and set a host of batting records, including the most sixes, and the second fastest century in test history.
In a nearly decade-long career, Gilchrist played 96 Test matches and 287 ODIs and 13 T20Is for Australia. Cricket Australia Chairman Creagh O’Connor paid tribute to Gilchrist, describing him as one of the greatest players of all time. He has scored 5,556 runs at an average of 47.89, with 17 hundreds and has a highest score of 204 not out. So it was pretty easy to get out of there and say that’s me done for a while,” added Gilchrist. The left-hander also talked about his famous walk despite being given not out in the semifinal against Sri Lanka in the 2003 World Cup. Gilchrist, who has 905 dismissals in a decade-long career, stated that he always wanted to retire in good form, rather than being a burden on the team.
