Sports News | Russel reminds Gilchrist of squash ball


During the live broadcast of Australia’s match against Sri Lanka, Russel Arnold reminded fellow commentator Adam Gilchrist about the famous ‘Squash Ball’ incident from the 2007 World Cup final.

Against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, Australia captain Aaron Finch struggled to get goin in his innings, ending up not out, scoring  just 31 off 42 balls.

During commentary, Gilchrist asked Russel what Finch should be doing to get going.

“Well what he should do is….put a squash ball in his glove come out bat in the next game” Russel replied wittily reminding Gilchrist about the famous incident from 2007.

In the 2007 50-over Wold Cup final , Adam Gilchrist scored a magnificent 149 off just 104 balls to power Australia to 281/4 in 38 overs in the rain affected game, which eventually the Aussies won by 53 runs (D/L)

Later on, Gilchrist said that he had a squash ball inside his glove during that innings, which helped him grip the bat much better.
