[FC Barcelona -] Glenn McGrath inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame

FC Barcelona has posted a new item, 'Glenn McGrath inducted into the ICC Cricket
Hall of Fame'

The International Cricket Council today inducted Glenn McGrath into the ICC
Cricket Hall of Fame 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.

While Lara and Bakewell were inducted in September at the LG ICC Awards, McGrath
was inducted at his home ground of the SCG by the ICC President, Alan Isaac,
along with Cricket Australia chairman Wally Edwards in front of a large and
appreciative crowd. A fourth and final inductee of 2012-13 will be announced
later this year.


McGrath, who was born in in Dubbo, New South Wales in 1970, represented
Australia in 124 Test matches between 1993 and 2007 claiming 563 Test wickets at
an average of 21.64, and he is still taken more Test wickets than any other seam
bowler currently in the game or retired.
