ICL: Indian Cricket League

Ponting backs McGrath on return



The Australia cricket teamís captain Ricky Ponting expects experienced fast bowler Glenn McGrath to produce the goods when the world champions take on West Indies and India in the tri-series.

McGrath, who took time off from cricket in January to care for his ill wife, returns to Australia’s line-up for their first match against West Indies on Tuesday at the new Kinrara Oval. “I’m looking forward to Glenn playing again,” Ponting told reporters on Monday.

“He’s really keen to get involved and has been working very hard in the off-season to get himself right for this series, and sort of a build-up for the Champions Trophy. “I’ve got the highest expectations of Glenn coming back. He’s been such a great bowler for such a long period of time, he’ll just slot right back in and do the job for us,” he added.

McGrath, 36, has played 221 One-day Internationals (ODI), taking 331 wickets at an average of 22.43.
