Gilchrist takes a dig at English cricket team

The Australian cricket team has had a great build up to the World Cup this year as they are coming off a successful ODI series against India and Pakistan at their respective homes which has earned them great applause and support from former players as well.

Former Australian wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist has backed his home side to win the mega event this year as he feels that the yellow shirts are as good as any other team on paper and they have played some quality cricket in recent months.

However, the former Test cricketer did take a jibe at arch rivals England who are being considered the number 1 favourites for the title this time as he predicted that the English side would be shattered during the semi finals this year, comparing the sound of an explosion in the background.
