About Glenn McGrath

Glenn McGrath has achieved numerous milestones in his illustrious cricket career and as President of the McGrath Foundation.

Alongside his late wife Jane, Glenn founded The McGrath Foundation to address the critical shortage of Breast Care Nurses across Australia, especially in rural and regional areas. The foundation now supports over 100 McGrath Breast Care Nurses nationwide, significantly impacting the lives of Australian women battling breast cancer.

Glenn's exceptional achievements have made him one of Australia's most beloved and respected athletes. His personal bravery and on-field success have consistently kept him in the media spotlight, cementing his status as an iconic figure in Australia today. He was named one of Australia’s most trusted individuals in both 2009 and 2010.

McGrath holds the record for the most wickets taken by an Australian bowler in One Day Internationals and ranks fifth on the all-time Test Match wicket list. He was the first Australian bowler to play in 200 One-Day Internationals and the first Australian fast bowler to appear in 100 Test matches.

Glenn retired from Test cricket at the end of 2006, concluding his Test career after the 5th Ashes test in Sydney. His One-Day career came to an end with the 2007 World Cup.

In 2008, Glenn was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for his ‘service to cricket as a player’. Later that year, he received the NSW Australian of the Year Award in recognition of his commitment to the McGrath Foundation and his contributions to cricket.

Glenn also competed in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 Tournament for the Delhi Daredevils in 2008 and 2009.
