McGrath to work with Australian cricketers in India

Jun 14 2013, 7:12am CDT | by

Melbourne, June 14 (IANS) Australian bowling legend Glenn McGrath will spend the next two weeks in India working with a group of Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) scholars from Cricket Australia's (CA) Centre of Excellence in Brisbane.

Melbourne, June 14 — Australian bowling legend Glenn McGrath will spend the next two weeks in India working with a group of Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) scholars from Cricket Australia's (CA) Centre of Excellence in Brisbane.

CA are taking steps to ensure there is no repeat of the disastrous tour of India when the men from Down Under lost the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 0-4 earlier this year.

As part of CA's AIS scholarship programme, the group consisting of Peter Handscomb, Kurtis Patterson, Joel Paris, Gurinder Sandhu, Josh Hazlewood, Matt Fotia will work with McGrath, who heads the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai. Former pacer Craig McDermott will also be working with the group in those two weeks.

"India is so different to Australia in nearly every way. The climate, the conditions, the sheer amount of people there, the food, and then the playing conditions as well. It's going to be high 30s, early 40s every day. It'll be pretty warm," McGrath was quoted as saying by the CA website.

Need for more experience in sub-continental conditions was recognised after Australia's humiliating series defeat at the hands of India.

"Hopefully, when and if they do move up to play for Australia, they've had a little bit of experience in India and it's not such a shock culturally and the transition is a bit smoother," McGrath added.

How Much Longer Can World's Best Fast Bowler Dale Steyn Continue?

Aug 13 2014 11:07am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It is not often that Dale Steyn’s achievements slip under the radar. In the recent Test against Zimbabwe, he picked up eight scalps, including 5-for-46 in the first innings. While he certainly didn’t go unnoticed, his feat was somewhat understated as debut spinner Dane Piedt hogged the headlines. There’s nothing wrong with sharing the headlines, but Steyn’s performances in Tests only seem to keep getting better. Even as he heads into his twilight years, Steyn is s ...
