Glenn McGrath has achieved many milestones throughout his illustrious cricket career and through his role as President of the McGrath Foundation. Glenn’s success to date has seen him become one of Australia’s most popular and well respected athletes. His personal courage and on field success has seen him constantly sought after by the media and he is one of the most iconic faces in Australia today. In 2009 and 2010 he was named as one of Australia’s most trusted people.
McGrath has taken more wickets than any other Australian fast bowler in One Day Internationals and is currently fourth on the all time Test Match wicket list. Glenn was the first Australian bowler to play in 200 One‐Day Internationals and the first Australian Fast Bowler to play in 100 Test matches.
In 2008 Glenn was named as a member of the Order of Australia for service to cricket as a player and later that year he was the recipient of the NSW Australian of the Year Award in recognition of his dedication to the McGrath Foundation and his contribution to cricket.
