Adam Gilchrist rates MS Dhoni as one of the best wicket-keepers in the world

first_imgLegendary Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Adam Gilchrist on Thursday picked former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni as his successor in the world’s best wicket-keepers’ list.”Dhoni, the way he has carried every role that he has under his job description. A wicket-keeper, batsman, captain every thing. He is a brand and he has carried all these things with amazing success,” Gilchrist said at an event in New Delhi.The 45-year-old left hand batsman also termed the innings that he played in the 2007 World Cup final a “perfect performance”.Gilchrist slammed 149 runs in 104 balls in the final match against Sri Lanka, which Australia won by 53 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method.”My perfect innings would be the final of the World Cup 2007. And all top athletes know that we build up so much for the big events and it does not always go perfectly,” Gilchrist said.”In the previous World Cup finals, the performances were okay but everyone wants to score a hundred and that happened in 2007 and that was my perfect performance,” he added.With Ashes starting from November 23, both England and Australia want to overpower each other but Gilchrist said he wanted the series to be evenly fought.”I expect Ashes series to be evenly fought. Both teams are equally matched but Australians would start as the favourites because of the bowling unit. And if Australia kept their bowlers fit throughout the series, then they are the favourites,” Gilchrist said.Gilchrist praised England all-rounder Ben Stokes and said he was the leader of the team and his absence might give Australians an advantage.advertisementStokes is still in England awaiting the outcome of a police probe into his involvement in a brawl outside a nightclub.last_img read more

The Elders Call For Fair Elections And Inclusive Peaceful Transition In PostMugabe

first_imgThe Elders today called on all political, military and civil society leaders in Zimbabwe to work together towards free and fair elections and a peaceful, inclusive transition following the resignation of former President Robert Mugabe.They urged all stakeholders to implement immediate socio-economic measures to address urgent issues that affect ordinary Zimbabweans’ welfare and provide relief to their pain and suffering. Zimbabwe’s neighbours in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries must do all they can to support a successful political process that respects human rights and returns stability and growth to the country.Kofi Annan, Chair of The Elders, said: “The period between now and the 2018 election is critical both for reconciliation and organised transition in Zimbabwe. All stakeholders should come together and engage in serious debate on a future vision and public policy.”Graça Machel, co-founder of The Elders and a former freedom fighter in Mozambique, said: “The departure of Robert Mugabe offers a huge and rare chance for the people of Zimbabwe to chart a new course towards a peaceful, prosperous and inclusive future. This will only succeed if civil society activists, human rights defenders, independent media, religious organizations and academia are engaged on the type of transition to be chosen. Zimbabwe must look to the future, but also deliver justice to those who have suffered in the past.”The Elders agree that upcoming elections in 2018 are a crucial test of Zimbabwe’s new leaders’ commitment to democracy and political reform. All state institutions, especially the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, must put transparency and integrity at the heart of their work. This is particularly important regarding the ongoing Biometric Voter Registration process, which must deliver a credible electoral roll to restore confidence to the voting system.last_img read more
