Glenn McGrath is likely to play in today’s ODI against South Africa in Sydney. The future of the Australian fast bowler in the short term though is very doubtful, as his wife is once again battling with cancer.
It seems likely that McGrath will be available to play in the Second final as well, which will be played at Sydney, but that he’s not able to travel for the immediate future.
I would hazard a guess that McGrath was told to play by his wife Jane, who would be hating the impact that her battle with cancer is having on her husband. I wish them both well. Even though this is a cricket blog, there are actually more important things in life. Not many, but this is one of them.
UPDATE- Ugh, me wrong. McGrath’s a late scratching. Good luck mate!
