This has been bothering me for quite a while now. Why do bowlers constantly bowl over the wicket to Adam Gilchrist in ODIs, despite the blatantly obvious fact that he likes width? After Flintoff worked Gilchrist out in the Ashes using that ploy, its been painfully obvious that you need to bowl around the wicket to him, yet its like this fact is lost upon bowlers around the world. Today's game between NZ and Australia is a case in point: Kyle Mills had to be hammered for 3 6's before going going around bowling a dot ball and going back over. Meanwhile Chris Martin dismissed Gilchrist twice in less than 2 overs by going around the wicket (by which time Gilchrist already had 50). In fact, i find it hard to understand why any right hand seamer would bowl over the wicket to any left hand batsman in ODI cricket given that almost all left handers strongly favor the ball thats angled away from them.
