When in Mumbai, Australian cricketer Adam Gilchrist likes to party in Bandra. He likes to spend Friday nights at home, eating home-made pizzas

Q) Can: cook a five-course meal/a sandwich/boil water/don’t know how the gas works?

It may be not be five-star dining, but I have enough skills to put together a decent meal.

Q) On weekends: work out like it’s just another day/go easy/exercise…what’s that?

Probably go a bit easy but if I have time, I might work out a bit.

Q) Strictly salads and grilled chicken, or cheese/chocolate cheat for the weekend?

I don’t follow a strict diet. As long as it is reasonable and within limits, I am comfortable eating most things.

Q) Three quintessential Aussie dishes to try.

Barramundi fish cooked on the barbecue with a hint of lemon and chilli; definitely a sirloin steak and a Pavlova with a good scoop of vanilla ice cream.
