  • Glenn Donald McGrath AM (/məˈɡrɑː/; born 9 February 1970) is a former Australian international cricketer and a commentator for Channel Nine's cricket coverage. He was a fast-medium pace bowler and is considered one of the greatest bowlers in cricketing history, and a leading contributor to Australia's domination of world cricket from the mid-1990s to the early 21st century. Known throughout his career for maintaining an accurate line and length, McGrath's consistency enabled him to be one of the most economical and dangerous fast bowlers of his time. McGrath holds the world record for the highest number of Test wickets by a fast bowler and is fourth on the all-time list, with the top three wicket takers Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, and Anil Kumble all being spin bowlers. He has also taken the sixth-highest number of one day international wickets, and holds the record for the most wickets 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, whilst the 2007 World Cup marked the end of his one-day career, in which he won the man of the tournament award for his outstanding bowling which was instrumental in Australia winning the tournament. McGrath later played for the Indian Premier League team of the Delhi DareDevils, and was one of the tournaments' most economical bowlers during its first season, but he saw no action in the second season, ultimately having his contract bought out. McGrath is the director of MRF Pace Foundation, Chennai, replacing Dennis Lillee, who served for 25 years. He currently serves as the Co-Founder and President of the McGrath Foundation, a breast cancer support and education charity he founded with his deceased first wife, Jane. Glenn McGrath, along with Rahul Dravid, was honoured during the seventh annual Bradman Awards function in Sydney on November 1, 2012. He was inducted into ICC Hall of fame in January 2013. (en)
  • Glenn Donald McGrath (* 9. Februar 1970 in Dubbo, New South Wales) ist ein ehemaliger australischer Cricketspieler und einer der angesehensten Fast-Bowler in dieser Sportart. Er erzielte 563 Wickets bei Test Matches in seiner Karriere, so viel wie kein anderer Fast-Bowler. Insgesamt absolvierte Glenn McGrath während seiner Karriere 124 Tests. Sein erstes Test Match für Australien absolvierte McGrath im November 1993 gegen Neuseeland in Perth. Seit Mitte der 1990er-Jahre gehörte er zur Standardbesetzung des Nationalteams und bildete zusammen mit Shane Warne ein gefürchtetes Bowler-Gespann. 2006 kündigte er an, sich nach dem Cricket World Cup 2007 komplett aus dem Sport zurückzuziehen. Sein letztes Test Match spielte er im Rahmen der Ashes-Serie 2006/07 gegen England. Während seiner Karriere bestritt McGrath 250 One-Day International Matches. Mit dem australischen Team gewann Glenn McGrath drei Mal die Cricket Weltmeisterschaft (1999, 2003 und 2007). Beim Cricket World Cup 2007 erzielte er die meisten Wickets (26) aller Spieler. Mit dieser Leistung wurde ihm der Titel 'Spieler des Turniers' verliehen. Zudem ist er mit 71 Wickets erfolgreichster Bowler der Geschichte des World Cup. Die erste Frau von McGrath, Jane McGrath, mit der er zwei Kinder hat, verstarb 2008 nach langer Krankheit an Krebs. Beide gemeinsam hatten während der Krankheit eine Wohltätigkeitsorganisation, die McGrath Foundation, ins Leben gerufen, die sich der Bekämpfung des Brustkrebses widmet. Seit 2010 ist McGrath erneut verheiratet. (de)

  • Glenn Donald McGrath (ur. 9 lutego 1970 w Dubbo) - australijski krykiecista, reprezentant kraju. Najbardziej skuteczny medium/fast bowler w krykiecie, rekordzista pod względem wicketów zdobytych przez szybkich rzucających w meczach testowych, jest także rekordzistą pod względem wicketów zdobytych w czasie mistrzostw świata. Uważany za jednego z najgorszych batsmanów w historii krykieta, przez znaczną część jego kariery miał on na koncie więcej wicketów niż runów. McGrath nie należy do najszybszych z fast bowlerów ale jego rzuty są niezwykle dokładne, jedno z jego popularnych przezwisk to Metronome (metronom) co ma opisywać dokładność jego bowlingu. Jego żona, Jane, zmarła na raka w 2008. Jeszcze za jej życia był aktywny w szeregu instytucji charytatywnych zbierających fundusze na walkę z nowotworami. Ma dwoje dzieci. (pl)
