Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath believes he will be back better than ever for this yearâ€™s Ashes series after his extended break from the game. McGrath has not played international cricket since January after his wife Jane was diagnosed with cancer. He missed Australiaâ€™s tours of South Africa and Bangladesh but says suggestions his career may be over are off the mark. â€œWhenever people have written me off, I have always proved them wrong,â€ McGrath told the Sunday Telegraph. â€œPeople can say what they want but all it means is Iâ€™ll be proving them wrong again. â€œIâ€™m really in the same position as every other player because the Ashes will be our first series after a long break. Iâ€™ve been working on a number of things I believe will make me an even better bowler come the start of the Ashes.â€ McGrath said he was hoping to make his international comeback at the ICC Champions Trophy in India in October and early November. The first Ashes Test starts in Brisbane in late November.
