Glenn McGrath is one of Australia's most popular and well respected athletes, acknowledged both for his extraordinary cricket career and his role as President of the McGrath Foundation. 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.
