Adam Gilchrist goes Nuts!

A few days ago I was frightened, because Adam Gilchrist went nuts...No he wasn't admitted to a mental institute but he went nuts in the Indian Premier League the other day by blasting 109 not out off 47 balls which included an impressive 10 sixes and 9 fours. It was his scintilliating performance that enabled the Deccan Chargers to take charge of their match against the Mumbai Indians in style by beating them by 10 wickets. It was an excellent display of power hitting by Gilchrist, who is known for his brilliant attacking acts with the bat, and I'm sure that him and the Kolkata wicket keeper and New Zealand International, Brendon McCullum, will be challenging eachother for the rights as the most explosive batsman in the Indian Premier League. McCullum is currently the 2nd highest run scorer in the league so far and even though Gilchrist is a few places behind him I'm sure that with more punishing displays like that he will definetly provide a challenge. To the Deccan Chargers: Congratulations for the win! Enjoy the spoils of that huge win and let that build your confidence up for your remaining time in the tournament, to the Mumbai Indians: Bad Luck this time, lets see you assess what went wrong and hope for some success for you in your remaining time. I have noticed that Twenty20 games can be unpredictable and it can take only one mistake to turn a whole game around, I think its that which will keep us on the edge of our seats for the remainder of the tournament.
