    Gilchrist Pads Up For Channel Nine

    What a fantastic acquisition for Channel Nine.

    Gilchrist, I've always found, is very considered, yet forthright, in his views.

    Looking forward to seeing him on the small screen.

    Hopefully it means that the other keeper on the team, the insufferable Ian Healy, gets flicked.

    Gichrist is excellent. I've read some of his articles, and they are eloquent and thoughtful. Along with Lee, probably the Aussie I respect and like the most. He'll be much better than Healy.

    He will bring a "unique" aspect to the commentary box having just left the game.Similar to what Mark Taylor has done.

    Always thought that Gilchrist was the most media savvy of the current Australian players by a long way. He will be an excellent commentator.

    With Fuller, you guys probably know more than I do, but he always seemed like one who would make a smooth transition to the booth, if he wanted to.

    When he is mic'ed up even during a game, he is fun to listen to.

    9 should clear out Taylor, Healy, Lawry, Chappelle and O'Donold. I'd get rid of Benuad but people would have heart attacks.

    Wonderful news. Adam Gilchrist would make a wonderful addition to the Channel 9 commentary box. He's always come across as being intelligent with his words and has the respect of not only all the players but also the entire cricketing audience.

    Very good news. They do need these more recent players because tbh, the like of Greig and Lawry are becoming quite outdated.

    Chappelli can be annoying but at least he says some good points. Lawry is exciting and has become part of the aussie summer, really. Taylor is not bad but Healy and O'Donnel are both poor. And the legend must leave on his own terms.

    Chappelle did his homework this summer and spat out some insightful things about India. But gets annoying when he regurgitates what little he knows over and over again - often in the same match. Same applies to Lawry, except I can't remember the last time he said anything interesting. Taylor too has nothing of any real consequence to say.

    Very predictable that hes been signed by Channel 9, though has been very entertaining with his on-field efforts so should definitely be worth listening to in the box.
