Retiring wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist has described his final appearance at the WACA Ground as the 'perfect day' after cracking a century to inspire Australia to a 63-run bonus-point win over Sri Lanka.

Gilchrist smashed nine fours and three sixes in his knock of 118 from 132 balls in front of an adoring home crowd of 17,967.

"It turned out to be a perfect day really," an emotionally-drained Gilchrist said after the match.
