Children at Bellerive Oval pleaded for the mystery ball snatcher to return it to Adam Gilchrist after he re-entered the ground with the prize possession.

Gilchrist slog-swept Muttiah Muralitharan on Saturday to become the first to 100 Test sixes, but his call for the treasure to be given back has been ignored. The spectator Anandan Reddy captured this image of the man, dressed in the fluro red jacket, who collected the ball after it rolled down Church Street.

The man did not respond to calls from the children at the fence and did not throw it back on the field when he came into the oval. Gilchrist does not expect to see the ball again, but would really like to get his hands on the memento.
