Former Australian cricketer Adam Gilchrist expressed his anger over the circulation of ‘fake and made-up quotes’ attributed to him on social media platforms. The quotes, falsely attributed to Gilchrist, claimed that he said, “Pakistan is the worst Asian team in Australian conditions, what have they won here in the last 35 years?”

Furthermore, Adam Gilchrist commended Pakistan for their commendable performance in the three-match Test series against Australia, led by Shan Masood, despite ultimately losing 0-3. He acknowledged Pakistan’s excellence at times during the series and highlighted their close attempts to secure victories in some of the Tests.

 

After suffering a significant defeat in the Perth Test by 360 runs, Pakistan displayed resilience in the subsequent matches in Melbourne and Sydney. Although they put themselves in a favorable position for victory in both games, they couldn’t maintain their composure, ultimately losing to Australia by eight wickets in Sydney.

Despite the series loss, Adam Gilchrist recognized Pakistan’s competitive spirit against the world champion Australian team. Notably, Aamer Jamal’s notable performance in the SCG Test, where he picked up six wickets and scored 82 runs, contributed to Pakistan’s commendable efforts.
