Adam Gilchrist

On Application
Australia - NSW

Adam Gilchrist, is a retired Australian international cricketer. As an aggressive left-handed batsman and record-breaking wicket-keeper, he re-defined the role for the Australian national team.

He is considered to be one of the best wicket-keeper-batsmen in the history of the game. He holds the world record for the most dismissals by a wicket keeper in One Day International cricket and the most by an Australian in Test cricket. His strike rate is amongst the highest in the history of both One-day and Test cricket. His 17 Test and 16 ODI centuries are the most by a wicket-keeper.

Adam holds the unique record of scoring at least 50 runs in successive World Cup finals (in 1999, 2003 and 2007)and is one of only three players to have won three titles.He made his first-class debut in 1992, his first One-Day International appearance in 1996 in India (TITAN CUP) and his Test debut in 1999.

During his career, he played for Australia in 96 Test matches and over 270 One-day internationals. He was Australia's vice-captain in both forms of the game, captaining the team when regular captains Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting were unavailable.

He announced his retirement from international cricket on 26 January 2008 (effective in early March 2008), during the final test match of the summer against India at Adelaide, one day after he broke the world record for the most dismissals by a wicket keeper.

In addition to his cricket career, Adam has established a media career as a sports reporter for Channel 10 in Perth. He is Vice-Patron of the State Branch of Canteen, a national organisation which assists children and teenagers with cancer. Adam is an entertaining and motivating speaker who regularly addresses both corporate and sporting functions.

His presentation addresses topics such as team-building and goal-setting and includes a humorous behind-the-scenes insight into the world of professional cricket. Adam's warm and down to earth style is always a winner and will appeal to a diverse array of audiences.
