Australia legend Adam Gilchrist gave cricket lovers a unique insight into the game by wearing a camera while batting during the MCC v Rest of the World clash to celebrate the Bicentenary of Lord's Cricket Ground.

The former Australia wicketkeeper strapped a GoPro camera to his helmet during his innings of 29 for the Rest of the World.

It was the first time a player has worn a camera in the middle at Lord's during a major match.

The 42-year-old spent the majority of the innings at the crease with India's Virender Sehwag, and can be seen sharing a joke after hitting former Australia teammate Shaun Tait for two boundaries in front of a packed house at the Home of Cricket.

After a straight drive down the Ground towards the Nursery End for four you can hear Gilchrist remark: "Ah, this is fun!"

Moments later he hooks the ball for four towards the Mound Stand and jokes with Tait saying: "Good cricket all round!"

Gilchrist then gives Sehwag a fist pump in the middle of the pitch and says, "just got enough, just got enough of it!" Before adding: "I knew it wasn't going to be long before he tried to hit the GoPro."

A longer version of the Gilchrist GoPro video, which will include his walk through the Long Room and more the middle, will be available on and Lord's YouTube channel this week.
