Glenn Donald McGrath AM (/məˈɡrɑː/; born 9 February 1970 in Dubbo, New South Wales), nicknamed "Pigeon", is a former Australian cricket player. He is one of the most highly regarded fast-medium pace bowlers in cricketing history, and a leading contributor to Australia's domination of world cricket from the mid-1990s to the early 21st century.
Known throughout his career for maintaining a remarkably accurate line and length, McGrath's consistency enabled him to be one of the most economical and dangerous fast bowlers of his time. McGrath holds the world record for the highest number of Test wickets by a fast bowler and is fourth on the all-time list, with the top three wicket takers Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, and Anil Kumble all being spin bowlers. He has also taken the sixth highest number of One Day International wickets, and holds the record for the most wickets in the Cricket World Cup. McGrath announced his retirement from Test cricket on 23 December 2006, with his Test career coming to an end after the fifth Ashes test in Sydney in January 2007, whilst the 2007 World Cup marked the end of his one-day career. McGrath later played for the Indian Premier League team of the Delhi DareDevils, and was one of the tournaments' most economical bowlers during its first season, however he saw no action in the second season, ultimately having his contract bought out.
McGrath currently serves as the Chairman of the Board and as an ambassador for the McGrath Foundation, a breast cancer support and education charity he founded with his deceased first wife, Jane.
Glenn McGrath, along with Rahul Dravid were honoured during the seventh annual Bradman Awards function in Sydney on November 1, 2012.
