#4 Adam Gilchrist
Walking off even after being given not out by the umpire is a rare sight, but Adam Gilchrist did it in the 2003 World Cup semifinal against Sri Lanka. A true ambassador of this game, Gilchrist is arguably the greatest wicket keeper-batsman to have played this game. In typical Australian fashion, Gilly was aggressive on the field, indulging in sledging and good-natured banter behind the stumps; off it, he was a soft spoken character.
Loved across the World for his powerful hitting, he changed the perception that wicket keeper can't bat. Outside cricket, Gilchrist is an ambassador for the charity "World Vision" in India, a country which loves him for his cricket achievements. One of the cleanest hitter of ball, Gilchrist clearly enjoys a great fan base with almost no haters.Published 12 Mar 2018, 00:07 IST
