Adam Gilchrist always had the ability to counter-attack any opposition with world class bowlers. Very rarely you see Wasim Akram conceding twenty odd runs in an over after reducing the opposition to 39/3.

I had always enjoyed his high batting grip and the cracking sound from his bat whenever he hit the ball.
