Glenn McGrath, the legendary Australian fast-bowler, recently praised England’s fast-bowling duo, James Anderson and Stuart Broad, stating that they are setting unbeatable records. McGrath anticipates the Ashes 2023, which commences on June 16th. As reported by the Daily Mail, he believes that Australia needs to start the series on a positive note and cannot afford to go down 1-0. The last time Australia won an Ashes series in England was in 2001, when McGrath was part of the squad.
“I might be a bit tongue-in-cheek. Australia have not won a series in England since 2001. They will need to start well. They can’t let England go 1-0 up with the way England are playing at the moment,”
ENGLAND HAVE TAKEN THE GAME TO NEXT LEVEL: GLENN McGRATH
According to McGrath, England has elevated their game to a new level. He further stated that during his time playing for Australia, the team played with a lot of freedom.
“If you play without fear, it’s amazing what you can achieve. The Australian team I played in played with a lot of freedom and we backed ourselves, but England have taken it to the next level,”
Glenn McGrath showered England’s fast-bowling pair, James Anderson and Stuart Broad, with compliments. He noted that they have been creating unbreakable records in Test cricket. Recently, Anderson and Broad surpassed McGrath and Shane Warne’s record of 1,001 scalps to become the most successful bowling pair.
“They are setting records that will never be beaten. Warnie and I had a great career together. We marked the anniversary of his passing recently and it still hits you pretty hard. He was a once-in-a-generation player. But congratulations to Jimmy and Broady. They are an incredible partnership. They did take a couple more Tests than Shane and I, though,”
