McGrath aiming higher…600!

The Courier-Mail: Revitalised McGrath sets sights on 600 [08mar05]

Sure enough to send shivers down opening batsmen around the world, the insanely accurate Glen McGrath wants to take 600 wickets

“I’ve always focused on 500 wickets but with the way I feel now, I’ve probably moved that up another 100,” McGrath said. “I don’t think I’ve ever felt as good as I have the last three months. I don’t even feel the ankle any more and my confidence has never been higher.”

I think it’s a tall order (pardon the pun), but if anyone can…he can. Interestingly:-

McGrath will become the first Australian quick since 1960 to start a Test after his 35th birthday when he leads the attack into an expected mauling of a brittle New Zealand at Jade Stadium.
