Glenn McGrath

GLENN McGRATH - CRICKET LEGEND

BASED: SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

Having taken 563 Test wickets, Glenn McGrath  is one of only two fast bowlers to join the elite ‘500 Club’. A lanky country boy from Naromine in central-western New South Wales, McGrath honed his talent at a young age by repetitiously bowling against a 44-gallon drum at the family farm’s machinery yard.
Sure of his skill, he challenged himself in the formative Sydney Grade competition and quickly found success with his high stump-to-stump action, bounce and pace. He exuded a palpable sense of commitment whether representing his Club, State or Country and gave no batsman any quarter in the spirit of the true fast bowler.
Always a thinking player, his ability to precisely control the ball subtly by varying its pitch and flight, even at good pace, made him one of the hardest to face and he challenged all the Great batsmen of his time. In the twilight of his career when his pace was fading he took this talent to a new height by what has been described as ‘metronomic precision’ to his bowling.
In order to deceive the batsman he combined an identical approach, delivery and follow-through, ball after ball, with only the most subtle variations in wrist position. Always an aspirational batsman, McGrath holds the unlikely world 3rd highest score for a No.11 after making 61 against New Zealand in 2004.
