Walk the walk – talk the talk!

On Sunday November 11, 2018, Tavs Tas presented the Adam Gilchrist Q&A – Spirit of Cricket and Sporting Chance Awards Event at Bellerive Yacht Club.

The packed room was entertained by so many inspiring guests and Award winners who both informed and delighted the crowd. All had truly inspirational stories and committed passion for inclusive sport – sharing insights to how they’ve experienced how Cricket builds confidence and skills, that in-turn help then to reach their life goals.

Adam was joined with fellow ‘Master Blaster’ Batsman, Graeme Smith. He was South African Captain at the time Gilly was reinventing the short game and rewriting the records books at the same time. These legendary Batsmen captivating our world with their power, determination and sheer skill displayed in the act of playing spirited, hard-but-fair Cricket.
