Eh? In Lara's most recent series he made scores of 61, 122, 216, 0 and 49.
Pretty decent I'd say. I do think that Gilchrist has lost something though, although I'm not really sure what it is exactly. His recent run of form has been pretty poor. Series averages of 22.62 in England, 17.33 home to WI, 27.60 home to SA, 10.00 away to SA 78.00 in Bangladesh (144 in one innings) and now averages just over 41 in the current Ashes series.
