The final days play Aussies vs India at the Adelaide oval. It is Gilly’s last test match. My family and I sat with the Gilchrist family, and when the game finished my sister and I went onto the Adelaide Oval.
The final days play After that we went into the Aussies dressing room. I got a photo with every player in the team.
The Dressing Room I was going up to Mitchell Johnson for some tips on bowling and he said the tips and then we were talking about batting and he gave me his gloves. They were the gloves that he wore to bat in this test match. I was going up to Hados for him to sign the gloves and he said “see those pads over there, they were the ones I wore when I got 103 runs this game. I don’t need them any more, you can have them if you want”.
