Mc Grath to be inducted into Hall of Fame

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, CMC- Australia bowler Glenn McGrath will be inducted this week into the International Cricket Council Hall of Fame, the ICC announced  yesterday.

McGrath will be inducted at a ceremony on Friday during the lunch interval of the third Test match between Australia and Sri Lanka in Sydney.

McGrath becomes the 68th male member of the Hall of Fame and joins fellow 2012-13 inductees West Indian Brian Lara and England’s Enid Bakewell in being recognized by the ICC and the living members of the Hall of Fame.

“I am honoured that the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame voting academy, which includes all the current living Hall of Famers, have nominated and voted me to be inducted into the Hall of Fame” said McGrath.

“I am very much looking forward to celebrating the occasion on 4 January with not only my friends and family, but all those at the SCG which is of course is like a second home to me.”

While Lara and Bakewell were inducted in September at the LG ICC Awards, McGrath will be inducted at his home ground of the SCG.

A fourth and final inductee of 2012-13 will be announced next summer.

McGrath represented Australia in 124 Test matches between 1993 and 2007 claiming 563 Test wickets at an average of 21.64, and has taken more Test wickets than any other seam bowler currently in the game or retired.
