    Deja vu for Adam Gilchrist, this time with foot in mouth

    Adam Gilchrist walked in yet another World Cup semi-final, this time at the World Twenty20 championship. In a totally unexpected move on Saturday, he earned a few more brownie points and supporters when he decided to take a decision out of the umpire's hands by opting to walk after Sreesanth had demolished his stumps.

    Sources close to Gilchrist confirmed that he did so to protect his reputation for walking and that he'd have done so even if Sreesanth had blown away the other two stumps as well. Gilchrist was quoted by the sources as having walked despite the distinct possibility that the Durban's windy weather had uprooted his middle-stump.
    5.1 Sreesanth to Gilchrist, OUT, bowled em! Sreesanth pitches full on the stumps, Gilchrist doesnt move his feet an inch, instead choosing to fatefully play from deep in the crease, misses out on the attempted on-drive, and loses his middle stump! Big wicket for India!

    After Australia had lost the game, Gilchrist stuck his foot in his mouth. When asked about Australia's performance, he said
    We came from four months off. India have been playing some cricket recently.
    The four month vacation didn't seem to have come into the picture when Australia demolished England or Sri Lanka. The Indian team (well most of those at this tournament) have been playing cricket continuously since June. That is not a good thing either!
