Dubai:  The International Cricket Council (ICC) yesterday announced that former Australia pace bowler Glenn McGrath will be inducted into its Cricket Hall of Fame on January 4 during the lunch interval of the third Test match between Australia and Sri Lanka in Sydney.

McGrath becomes the 68th male member of the Hall of Fame and joins fellow 2012-13 inductees West Indian Brian Lara and England’s Enid Bakewell in being recognised by the ICC and the living members of the Hall of Fame.

While Lara and Bakewell were inducted in September at the ICC Awards, McGrath will be inducted at his home ground, the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). A fourth and final inductee will be announced next summer. IANS
