Adam Gilchrist Says Bob Hawke was the Best on the Ground at the 1999 World Cup Celebrations

Adam Gilchrist met Dead Set Legends with Joey, Jay, and Emma this morning. To remember about getting the 1999 World Cup to win. And let us in on Bob Hawke’s most valuable on the ground team in the post-match presentations.

As you’d think, Australian trade room at Lord’s after a world cup victory. Every man and his dog are working to pile in there. Gilly told.

Any Aussie in the UK, anyone that arrived to be at Lord’s was seeking to get beyond the safety guy to get in. we’ve got colleagues and family, it’s going royal.

And later ex-Prime Minister, he wasn’t at the time. Bob Hawke cliffs in! The late famous Bobby! What a legend!

The Aussies hit over Pakistan for 132. And traveled to an eight-wicket win in 20 overs. With Gilly getting 54 off 36 to set the tone of the quest.

Afterward, Bob Hawke was very keen to get attached to keep the world cup win.
“We get the series, we’re up partying, next time, tap on the door, ayyy, Bobby walks in,” Gilly told.

“Bobby stepped in and I kid you not, he and his followers hit every last beer we had.
“They just destroyed us in our beer.”

The handed-down ex-PM’s thirst was very expensive for one of the newly invented world champions.

“We had to get support in, and of course the support that came in wasn’t the sponsor’s product,” Gilly told.

“So Darren Lehmann got shot drinking the non-sponsor’s product and got punished by Cricket Australia, and we blame Bob Hawke.”

Gilly also talked about the infamous semi-final run out versus South Africa. Shane Warne and Steve Waugh’s connection and more.
