Adam Gilchrist might not be known for his bowling skills, but the former Australian wicket-keeper surprised everyone when he got the better off Harbhajan Singh during an IPL match.

In another throwback video, posted by a Pakistani fan, Gilchrist can be seen bowling at Shahid Afridi in a double wicket tournament.

However, this time the results are not exactly what the Australian wanted, as Afridi smashes Gilchrist for two huge sixes.

Gilchrist re-tweeted the video, saying "Where's the respect @SAfridiOfficial ??? 😂😂😂 Lucky I hadn't developed my doosra by then!! @damienmartyn your thoughts please."

Former Australian batsman and Gilchrist's teammate Damien Martyn pulled his leg, saying "I thought it was an amazing piece of bowling.. @SAfridiOfficial just got lucky 😩"

Afridi then replied in his own style, saying "Sorry...but I was just doing what I do, guys! 😉😀 @gilly381"
