The great Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath is passionate about the 50-over format. But he is not afraid to acknowledge that it faces considerable difficulties.
Famous Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath acknowledges that despite his continued enjoyment of the 50-over format, it faces serious difficulties in the light of the rising popularity of T20 cricket. The “Director of Coaching” of the MRF Pace Foundation, although conservative by nature, believes that Test cricket is the “final test” for a cricketer.
I consider myself to be traditional. My ODI and Test matches were both entertaining. I still think test cricket is the finest. McGrath emphasized in an interview his desire for it to be preserved and treated with respect.
As long as runs are scored, ODIs remain thrilling. It will be interesting to see how ODIs develop. The ODIs must continue to be exciting. They have a few difficulties, he continued.
McGrath won’t be shocked if many young players begin to favor T20 Internationals because of concerns about workload.
“I’d like to believe so. As a result of having separate T20 and ODI teams, teams are essentially getting more specialized. True, Twenty20 cricket is where the money is. To be honest, a lot of players, especially young players, will look for T20 opportunities. After managing the MRF program for ten years, McGrath expressed his satisfaction with the players who went on to represent India, including Prasidh Krishna and Avesh Khan.
Ten years have passed, with the last two being particularly unstable (laughs). It has been wonderful. It was enjoyable. Our objective was to carry on Dennis’s efforts (Lillee).
“I believe the news is positive. He displays classy conduct. You want him to be successful. As a result, you want the skilled players to triumph. Therefore, you may recall Shubman Gill’s recent achievement in the West Indies, when he scored superbly. In the West Indies, the batsmen are performing their duties. McGrath responded to Hardik Pandya’s incredible comeback from an injury and outstanding all-around performance by saying that “cricket is very much a confidence sport.” Hardik is a skilled and assured athlete. His hitting will gain if his bowling is effective.
He plays two parts. Thus, he feels comfortable. He is a capable batsman as well as a skilled bowler. He has a sound strategy in place.
