Adam Gilchrist Get Fooled by Saeed Ajmal

Adam Gilchrist was fooled by Saeed Ajmal, the Pakistani right arm off spin bowler who ruled the roost.  Some of the biggest hitters in the world got out of bowling of Saeed Ajmal. Shahid Afridi and Kevin Pietersen were the victims of the out class bowling of the spinner of Pakistan who has not been part of the team anymore in any format for the international matches.

Adam Gilchrist has been the wonderful wicket keeper batsman of Australia and he had played wonderful cricket. He had played many spin bowlers in his entire career but in that particular match he could not understand the delivery and was deceived with the spin. The ball had come back instead of going away to the first slip.

Shahid Afridi also was one of victims of Saeed Ajmal when he tried to cover the spin of the ball but could not cover the stumps. He was clean bowled and had to go back to the pavilion. Saeed Ajmal did not celebrate since Shahid Afridi was his team mate in Pakistan. Saeed Ajmal got four crucial wickets in that match that was played for charity purpose.

Adam Gilchrist had the webcam on his helmet and all the deliveries that he played against Saeed Ajmal were recorded. This was the first time that the batsman and the umpire used such camera to give another view to the big screen. Saeed Ajmal deceived him with his magical delivery that was supposed to turn away from the left hand batsman.

Adam Gilchrist was heard through that webcam that had microphone placed on the helmet. He has always shown great character throughout his career. He did not feel bad while playing spin bowling. Other than Shahid Afridi and the wicket keeper batsman of Australia, Kevin Pietersen also was stumped by the spin of Saeed Ajmal.
