Melbourne: Former Australia wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist has hinted in his autobiography that Andrew Symonds should have “walked” after getting a nick on way to his big hundred during the spiteful Sydney cricket Test, but contradicted himself by saying that he felt uneasy when the all-rounder admitted the umpire’s error.

Symonds made 162 in Australia’s first innings in the second Test against India which was marred by umpiring errors and racial abuse controversy and he later admitted at a press conference that he had a big nick.

Gilchrist also admitted that umpires had erroneously not given Ricky Ponting out in that Test. — PTI
