A True Legend retires.

A True Legend retires.

Adam Gilchrist, Captain of Kings XI Punjab, who retired from international cricket four years ago in 2008, has finally called time on his Indian Premier League career.

"I suspect this might be the end of the road for me in the IPL, but let's see how it goes. Will go back home and think about future plans," Gilchrist said at the post-match press conference. Gilchrist first started his IPL career with Deccan Chargers for the opening season, He led Deccan Chargers as captain and won the title of IPL champions in 2009 and then in the fourth season he was signed by Kings XI Punjab. His decision to retire caught most off-guard, leaving the franchise stunned.

Gilchrist said his decision was due to the injury which made him miss a very large part of IPL 5. Gilly added: “I have a year’s contract still to go with Punjab. But the gut feeling is that I will not be back as a player. I have enjoyed my stint in the IPL as a player and will continue to be a part of it as a mentor."

Gilly was an amazing player, a true legend and an amazing visual treat for all the spectators when he played on the field. We wish Gilly good luck and hope to see him soon next season in a new role. Whatever role he chooses to play, I'm sure he'll be perfect for it.

Check out one of Gilly's last interviews with our very own Sid Mallya on No Boundaries Episode 4 here.
