Glenn McGrath, former Australian prodigious fast bowler, repeated a familiar rallying call by prognosticating a 5-0 whitewash of England in the upcoming Ashes series.
Attributing to England team’s recent debacle in Australia, the former Australian speedster, who lead the bowling attack of Australia’s all conquering test team in early 2000s,said that the perpetuation of the current form of the Australian team would definitely culminate into an Australian win in the Ashes, even envisaging the possibility of a 5-0 debacle.
The Australian has been notorious for predicting English debacles in the past and was embarrassed and humiliated when Australia failed to capture the 2005 series in England, where he once again led the bowling attack.
He had also been a part of the Australian team that completed an impeccable series whitewash down-under in 2006-07, and foretold the same result in 2009, where Andrew Strauss’s England led the home team to a triumph.
Glenn McGrath had more recently refrained from trumpeting the Australian team as invincible, even before 5-0 demolition in 2013-14, but that is how he positioned Michael Clarke’s team.
He foresaw more misery for the ousted captain Alastair Cook, who was dropped from the World Cup squad, as he would return to take the helm at the ashes home series against Australia.
McGrath also expected a transformation in the English team after the World Cup debacle, mentioning their struggles and ineffectiveness during the world cup, and complete lack of potency.
