Glenn McGrathPrint Page
A Statue commemorates former Australian test cricketer, Glenn McGrath.
Glenn McGrath grew up in Narromine where he first played cricket and his potential was spotted by Doug Walters. He moved to Sydney to play grade cricket for Sutherland, and made his debut for NSW during the 1992–93 season. McGrath capped his rapid rise in the next Australian summer with selection in the Test team after only eight first-class matches.
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 since the mid-1990s to the early 21st century. He holds the world record for the highest number of Test wickets by a fast bowler and is fourth on the all time list.
