The fast bowling legend, Glenn McGrath, has offered his help to Australian fast bowlers when they tour India next year for the four-match Test series. Australian fast bowlers always struggle in Indian conditions as it is contrary to the ones in Australia. They always find it difficult to be effective, in Indian conditions. Knowing this fact pretty well, the veteran has decided to help bowlers.

Currently, Glenn McGrath is the director of MRF Pace academy in Chennai who trains handpicked fast bowlers every year. Domestic players like Ishwar Pandey, Anureet Singh, Rahul Shukla and much more have played trained under him.

“I’m over in India six weeks a year, working at the MRF Pace Foundation, so I’ve learnt a lot about the technical side of fast bowling. To bowl in India is something you have to do and get out there and experience and I’ve had a lot of experience bowling in the sub-continent before my time at the MRF. So I’m always happy to help the boys out wherever I can,” McGrath told AAP.

McGrath accepted the fact that Indian conditions are pretty tough for fast bowlers and counted out challenges in these conditions and said, “It’s probably the toughest place in the world to be a fast bowler.”First-class cricket in India, in the Ranji Trophy, they actually do leave a little bit of grass on the wicket. But I can’t see that happening in the Test series. Obviously, Australia has struggled against spin in those conditions in the past so I dare say it will be something very similar.

“So Australia will need to come up with a game plan of how-how our batsmen are going to combat that. That’s the biggest issue. Our bowlers, I think they’ll still enjoy bowling over there. If you look after the ball, you get a good reverse swing,” he added.

Glenn Mcgrath, in his international career spanning overs 14 years, played eight Test matches in India and scalped 33 wickets at an average of 21.30 per wicket.

He has also been part of Australian team three times out of four Test matches when Australia have defeated India in India in past 46 years.
