CHURCHIE-An Unassuming Man

CHURCHIE alias Gilchrist has famous nick name in T20 international cricket...He was also called as gilly by the Australian fans... The swashbuckling left-hander batsman/wicket-keeper has been talking to the media about his retirement from the international cricket...... first he told that he will not think about retirement from cricket.... But due to the pressure created by the team mates because of dropping simple catches as that one of V.V.S.Laxman in the final test match of the 4- match series concluded against India....he told that this is one of the reason and by the way he told that it is the right time to quit from international cricket.........But his fans was not happy and were shocked to hear about his retirement..... But cricketing records beckons gilly as one of the famous batsman/keeper of international cricket....He holds the most number of catches in odi's(405) and in test cricket (421)..... He also holds the highest number of sixes in test cricket...(more thean 100)...He was also the 2nd fast century maker with his fiery knock of 57 balls 102 against England....He's been a great player for Australia for a long time now, had a wonderful career, and every game he gets throughout this one-day tournament, I think he deserves all the applause from his fans....Finally would like you to justify these statements?....
