Glenn McGrath has ended all speculations relating to his retirement and like Shane Warne, he will be playing his last test match in Sydney, his home ground. McGrath’s final match for Australia will be in the 2007 World Cup in West Indies.
Australia will be losing two of their best bowlers in their cricketing history on the last day of the Sydney Test. Glenn McGrath has taken 555 Test Scalps to date while Shane Warne is certain to end up with more than 700 wickets. McGrath’s international career had started in 1993 at Perth against New Zealand. His career will end up with 124 Test Matches in 13 years in which he has dominated most batting line ups in the world. Nicknamed as the Pigeon, McGrath has remained as the best fast bowler in the world for quite sometime; he has taken 29 five-wicket hauls along with 3 10-wicket hauls. The batsmen all around the world, in particular the opening batsmen would be breathing a lot easier knowing that they wouldn’t have to face a pigeon with a new ball!
