Yeah, that's a perfect example. Gilchrist took note of the fact that the pitch was slow and bounce was uneven, and therefore it was dangerous to play back or to play cross-bat shots, and simply cut them out of the game. After making 50 off 70 or so by stumps on day 2, he made the next 50 off about 100 balls on the third morning, batting with Gillespie. It was a very considered, intelligent innings, from the one guy who has been the least able to curb his attacking instincts in Australia's team, and it shows how Australia have worked on improving the flexibility in their batting.Originally Posted by dontcloseyoureyes
