About Glenn McGrath (from Wikipedia Page)
Glenn Donald McGrath is an Australian former international cricketer who played international cricket for 14 years.
He was a fast-medium pace bowler and is considered one of the greatest Australian international bowlers of all time, and a leading contributor to Australia’s domination of world cricket from the mid-1990s to the late-2000s.
Known throughout his career for maintaining an accurate line and length, McGrath displayed a consistency that enabled him to be one of the most economical and successful fast bowlers of his time.
In terms of total career wickets taken, McGrath is the second most successful fast bowler of all time behind James Anderson and is fifth on the all-time list, with the top three wicket takers Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne and Anil Kumble all spin bowlers.
He has also taken the seventh-highest number of one day international wickets (381) and holds the record for most wickets (71) in the Cricket World Cup.
McGrath announced his retirement from Test cricket on 23 December 2006, with his Test career coming to an end after the fifth Ashes Test in Sydney in January 2007, while the 2007 World Cup, which marked the end of his one-day career, saw him win the man-of-the-tournament award for his outstanding bowling, which was instrumental in Australia winning the tournament.
