Legendary Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist ‘apologised’ to his former teammate and pace bowler Glenn McGrath for “dropping a few” catches off his bowling in their playing days and for “not trusting” his batting, in a bid to get McGrath to answer his phone call.

 

The pair formed one of Australia’s most lethal bowler-wicketkeeper combinations, with “c Gilchrist b McGrath” making multiple entries in the scorecard on regular occasions for Australia. Both players retired after the 2006 home Ashes series.
