While there were a ton of conversations on the web, Gilchrist himself chose to end the disarray as he answered the tweet by The World Index. The cricketer explained that because the handle mentioned Adam Gilchrist’s net worth, it was a case of mistaken identity.

The businessman, who owns the F45 fitness center chain, recently made headlines for making more than $500 million in 2022. His net worth skyrocketed as a result of the company’s listing on the New York Stock Exchange last year.

“A case of mistaken identity here folks. Unless of course my namesake who founded F45 played cricket, in which case it’s completely accurate #doyourresearch #fakenews #yasafesachin”.

As Tendulkar maintains his position as the world’s richest cricketer, Gilchrist’s tweet included the snarky hashtag “#yasafesachin.” Fans on a variety of social media platforms praised Gilchrist for his prompt clarification as the post quickly went viral.
