Gilchrist was moderately successful in the following ODIs, the Carlton & United Series; Australia defeated Pakistan 2–0 in a best-of-three final.[81] Gilchrist scored 272 runs at 27.20; his best effort was 92 in a 152-run victory over India on Australia Day.[19] Gilchrist then scored 251 runs at 41.66 in the ODIs during a tour of New Zealand.[19] The highlight was a 128 in Christchurch that propelled Australia to a new national record score[citation needed] of 6/349.[19] Gilchrist was named man of the match in two of the games.

In the Third Test against New Zealand in 2000, Gilchrist recorded the third best Test performance ever by a wicketkeeper, and the best by an Australian,[82] taking ten catches in the match.[83] Although Gilchrist’s batting was modest, yielding 144 runs at 36.00,[19] Australia took a 3–0 clean sweep.[84] In two home and away ODI series against South Africa, Gilchrist had a quiet time, scoring 170 runs at 26.66.[19] South Africa won three of the six matches, with one tie.[82]

Later that year, he was handed the vice-captaincy of the Australian team in place of Shane Warne, who had been plagued by a number of off-the-field controversies, including an altercation with some teenage boys,[85] and a sex scandal with a British nurse.[86][87]
