Former Australia wicketkeeper-batter Adam Gilchrist has vehemently denounced a social media page for spreading false quotes attributed to him during the recent Test series between Pakistan and Australia. The decorated player, who served as a broadcaster for the series, found himself falsely accused of sharply criticizing the Pakistan team following their 3-0 defeat.

Despite the series loss, Pakistan, led by Shan Masood, exhibited promising performances, notably during the Boxing Day Test where they had Australia in a precarious position. The debuts of Aamer Jamal and Agha Salman also added positive notes to Pakistan’s tour.

A fabricated quote attributed to Gilchrist surfaced on social media, claiming he said, “Pakistan is the worst Asian team in Australian conditions. What have they won here in the last 35 years.” Gilchrist took to his social media accounts to clarify, stating, “I never said this. Absolutely fake, made-up quotes. Pakistan were excellent at times this summer, against a World Champion Aust team and very nearly pinched a Test or two.”

The misinformation stirred controversy on social platforms, prompting Gilchrist to set the record straight and express his appreciation for Pakistan’s commendable performances during the series. Despite not winning a Test in Australia since 1995, the Men in Green displayed competitiveness, marking a significant improvement from their previous tour where they suffered innings defeats in both matches.

As Australia prepares for a home series against the West Indies, Pakistan looks ahead to a five-match T20I series against New Zealand. The incident serves as a reminder of the challenges posed by fake news and misinformation circulating on social media platforms.
