Top 10 the most Beautiful International Women Cricketer 2021

In the last few years, Women’s cricket has managed to gain more attention than ever before. Surely, momentum is surging behind women’s cricket and more people are finding an interest in this form of the sport. There are several measures being taken to expedite the growth of women’s cricket all across the globe. Its inclusion in the 2022 Commonwealth Games, the new T20 leagues are just a few of such measures and many more are to come.

Apart from some of these steps, the popularity that some of the women cricketers have managed to gain is another reason behind this massive push. A few beautiful cricketers have managed to attract a lot of fans with their looks. Not just that! These cricketers have managed to play some really exciting brand of cricket which has further helped to keep the audience hooked onto their television sets.

Holly Ferling

Holly Ferling

23-year-old Holly Ferling made her debut for Australia’s national women’s team long way back in 2013. She was highly impressive in the domestic circuit bowling quick. Her height was an added advantage and that helped her gain some extra bounce off the pitch as well.

However, she has failed to impress at the highest level. Ferling couldn’t bag as many wickets as expected and thus was ousted from the side. She last played for Australia in 2016. Yet, she has been working hard on her game. Holly Ferling also had a few impressive outings in the Women’s Big Bash League in recent times.

Top 10 Fastest Runners In The World.

Running is a method of terrestrial locomotion allowing humans and other animals to move rapidly on foot. Running is a type of gait characterized by an aerial phase in which all feet are above the ground (though there are exceptions). This is in contrast to walking, where one foot is always in contact with the ground, the legs are kept mostly straight and the center of gravity vaults over the stance leg or legs in an inverted pendulum fashion. A feature of a running body from the viewpoint of spring-mass mechanics is that changes in kinetic and potential energy within a stride occur simultaneously, with energy storage accomplished by springy tendons and passive muscle elasticity. The term running can refer to any of a variety of speeds ranging from jogging to sprinting. It is assumed that the ancestors of humankind developed the ability to run for long distances about 2.6 million years ago, probably in order to hunt animals. Competitive running grew out of religious festivals in various areas. Records of competitive racing date back to the Tailteann Games in Ireland between 632 BCE and 1171 BCE, while the first recorded Olympic Games took place in 776 BCE. Running has been described as the world’s most accessible sport.

Top 10 Finishing Action Moves of WWE Wrestlers upto 2021

As in other professional wrestling promotions, WWE shows are not legitimate contests, but entertainment-based performance theater, featuring storyline-driven, scripted, and partially-choreographed matches. However, matches often include moves that can put performers at risk of injury, even death, if not performed correctly. The pre-determined aspect of wrestling was publicly acknowledged by WWE’s owner Vince McMahon in 1989 in order to avoid taxes from athletic commissions. WWE brands its product as sports entertainment, acknowledging wrestling’s roots in competitive sport and dramatic theater.

Spear – Roman Reigns

Spear - Roman Reigns

Spear – Roman Reigns

Spear of Roman Reigns is really dangerous for any wrestler.With this spear Roman Reigns has become Universal,WWE, United States and Inter Continental champion and also beat the phenom,the dead man “The Undertaker”.So according my considering spear of Roman Reigns is the best move in WWE.

I think roman’s move should be on top because he has beaten the undertaker triple h john cena and almost all legends.
It’s the reign of BIG DOG

The spear delivered by roman is really tough and disastorouS its enough to take on big guys like lesnar l am talking about 2012 and 2013 but now the wwe has toned his finisher and now it is the most protected finisher in wwe even more than AA because it proved brutal for the opponents goldberg spear went to the summit because those days mostly all matches werent scripted.Thank u#WWE IS FAKE

Bill Goldberg is the best at the spear and the spear is the best move Roman is the second best at the spear.

619 – Rey Mysterio

619 - Rey Mysterio

619 – Rey Mysterio

The 619 should be number 1 because it’s so cool I’d like to try to do it on my friend and I’m a fan of Rey mysterio since I’m 6 years old. And I wish they will bring him back on WWE 2k17. I also wish he would make a surprise entrance at royal rumble 2017 at entry number 30

But this finisher only can be done in the ring…like other finisher they can do anywhere

A just all-around amazing move from this amazing wrestler. One of the greatest luchador wrestlers of all time.

It is awesome move. Also a cool name like 619.I love it. Also many WWE fans

Attitude Adjustment – John Cena

Attitude Adjustment - John Cena

Attitude Adjustment – John Cena

I like FU because John Cena can do it very night. Like he Fu The Big Show He was like The Greatest of the world John Cena says that he will never give up. Until he will get the Champion Belt and keep that gold belt. We love you John Cena!  He jumps over the head of opponent, put him on his solder and through him to the ring, he did that so flawless, even he did it with many of heavy weighted superstars too… Superb john.. Keep it up!

This moves is amazing. Cena does great, specially when he does it to the likes of Big Show, Mark Henry and Khali. I’ve also seen him picking up some of his opponents with one harm, AMAZING!  Attitude adjustment is the best, hurting lower back, head and knees all at once truly devastative… No opponent of John Cena has ever been able to stand up after getting hit by it…

Sweet Chin Music – Shawn Michaels

Sweet Chin Music - Shawn Michaels

Sweet Chin Music – Shawn Michaels

Simply the best MOVE ever, nobody could do it and bring such a sense of reality like Shawn Michaels, it really looked like he just turned their faces to frying pans. The allure, the set up, the selling, even the sound of it rocked. You’re Still missed Shawn <3, you’re the best ever.

It had a great name, it could be performed almost anywhere, it was used by the best wrestler of all time. What more so you want?

One of the best finishers in history, not to mention that it is by the best wrestler in history

There’s no question.. Sweet Chin Music is without doubt the best finishing move in the history of WWE..

Rock Bottom – The Rock

Rock Bottom - The Rock

Rock Bottom – The Rock

It is the best ever finishing maneuver in entire WWE history… This is a form of side Slam but not just that much… Breaking down the opponent’s momentum and lifting him and hitting a Rock Bottom destroys the opponent!

It is the most electrifying move in wwe history no one can stand up in this move.
Through this move many of the best wrestler loose like: John Cena, Randy, Bigshow, Rey mysterio Hulk Hogan& many other wrestler

It is a very complicated move and it could go wrong but it does a lot of damage to the opposition and when they are on the floor you could easily pin them out to win the match and claim the WWE champion.

It is awesome move. It’s powerful, impacting, dangerous, disastrous and most important the most electrifying sportsman in sports entertainment performs it – “The ROCK”

Pedigree – Triple H

Pedigree - Triple H

Pedigree – Triple H

Is there anything more impactful or intimidating then the idea of being planted face first to the mat and having your arms locked too so you can’t get out.  TRIPLE H is a great wrestler. His pedigree is so dangerous. He is number 1 and he is awesome

I gave this move to my cousin on pillow but still he cried for an hour with his face red.  Pedigree it’s my favorite best luck for team authority.

F-5 – Brock Lesnar

F-5 - Brock Lesnar

F-5 – Brock Lesnar

F5 can be performed any where and can be as dangerous as the performer want with this move brock really hurt and injured the best in wwe and without Brock Lesnar no one can match to this move. Because every thing he did matched him.

Even Dangerous than a level f5 tornado.. ! Basically a dangerous fire mans carry face buster move, Breaks Ribs, Faces, shoulders and K. Os.. and Looks very Cool.  It is one of best moves I have ever seen. He carries him, twists him in the air and the opponent falls on his face!  F5 is very painful that is why all wrestlers that are fighting with Brock Lesnar give up.

Stone Cold Stunner – Steve Austin

Stone Cold Stunner - Steve Austin

Stone Cold Stunner – Steve Austin

Yes it can hurt you but it’s not banned in 7 states so what does that tell you! I have super huge respects for the rick slap and the iron claw by the von erichs (for the young ones who don’t know) but pound for pound the stunner is only one of very very few moves to ever be outlawed! I’m not older than dirt, just old enough to know I can talk abd walk my opinion!

Best part is you can do it anywhere to anyone. 619 relies on your opponent being in the ring. Tombstone Pile-driver requires your opponent to be light enough to lift up (doubt that Big Show for example can be pile-driven with ease).

It is one of the strongest wrestling moves not to mention it bodes well with his personality. Stone cold suits his move extremely well and h mixes a taunt with it as well. His signature/finisher move actually does what his move says which helps your cause, it seems quite simple.  Toughest, quickest and the most stylish finishing move.. This should be on the top… I feel rko is a sloppy version of stone cold stunner.

RKO – Randy Orton

RKO - Randy Orton

RKO – Randy Orton

It’s my favorite finisher because of how simple yet effective it is. It’s extremely versatile and can be used in many scenarios.  I think that Tombstone and pedigree can’t get to RKO because RKO is far more quick and Randy can perform it hundreds of times without being tired because it doesn’t take any power of him + one of shortest time requiring move in WWE just like giving a kick to someone!

Best wrestler ever should be first because the undertaker is now fat and only fights at main events that he did not deserve. Randy orton should of went against roman reighns because he won the rumble but since roman eleminated undertaker they took the main event? what the heck.  I think rko is the best because the tombstone only hurt the neck but RKO will affect to the face and neck. So the fighters get pained with RKO so I say RKO is the best. So friends vote to the randy orton’s RKO.

Tombstone Pile-driver – The Undertaker

Tombstone Pile-driver - The Undertaker

Tombstone Pile-driver – The Undertaker

Tombstone is killer! If I take an rko I think ow and make on, a Batista bomb I think oh I took a powerbomb from Batista the attitude adjustment sucks (sorry it does) the stunner is basically a sitdown RKO so read my RKO review for that one then f-5 is a spinning attitude adjustment then swanton bomb is hard to pull of pedigree looks to ridiculous sweet chin music is a superkick (derp) the rock bottom! It had to be a move where you grab your opponents shoulder lift them by the shoulder and slam them down but the tombstone would give me a concussion so tombstone is best  It’s the best move ever performed in wwe performed by the best wrestler in the world. He never lost a single match in wreslemania thanks to tombstone and the hells gate. He is gonna rock in future wrestlemania also.

The 10 Deadliest Submission Moves In WWE History
The 10 Deadliest Submission Moves In WWE History

The history of submission holds in wrestling is a long and storied one. The thought that one opponent could stretch another until they say uncle was an appealing way to not just beat your opponent but embarrass them too. At first, they were rudimentary and like a lot of moves from way back, look a little ridiculous. However, if you squeeze or yank hard enough, wrestlers could really hurt you with moves like the Bear Hug, the Claw, or The Sleeper (which really looked like they could decimate a man).

As the business has evolved, as well as real fight sports, these basic finishers, while still damaging, have given way to far more complex and diverse submission maneuvers that get the crowds right off their feet. When we suspend disbelief in this world, the level of pain these moves must feel like if properly applied would cause anyone to tap out. Here are The 10 Deadliest Submission Moves In WWE History, Ranked. Special shout out to moves like Tajiri’s Tarantula and Bret Hart’s Figure Four around the ring post. They’d both have spots on this list if not for them both being illegal.

The Stump Puller

The Stump Puller

The Stump Puller

It’s a bully move fit for a real nasty heel. That’s why it worked so well for Matt Borne during his days as Doink The Clown. He’d sit on his opponent’s shoulders keeping their arms at bay and then grab their leg and then do exactly what the name of the move implies. He’d pull the stump as hard as he could. The move clearly is too sadistic for anyone to utilize today. It hasn’t been seen before or since the evil clown did it.

The Sharpshooter

The Sharpshooter

The Sharpshooter

Speaking of Bret Hart, when he embarked on his singles career, he borrowed the Scorpion Death Lock from Sting. He dubbed his version the Sharpshooter and wrestling fans have been enthralled by it ever since. Being a better technical wrestler than Sting allowed for Bret to lock the move in all kinds of interesting ways.

The move has become a staple of the Hart Family and family friend Cesaro, who usually locks his version after spinning his foe around the ring about 65 times first.

Mandible Claw

Mandible Claw

Mandible Claw

Only from the mind of Mick Foley, who was not a master technician, would a submission move so vile come from. He adopted the Mandible Claw from an old school wrestler, Sam Shepard, the real-life inspiration for The Fugitive TV series and movie. Foley would popularize the move while wearing a sock on his hand. But we all know that tanking down a guy’s throat is a much more jarring sight than Mr. Socko.

PTO

PTO

PTO

One of the coolest things Paige did in her short WWE career was reintroduce the WWE Universe to Bull Nakano’s Angelito submission. Paige called her version the PTO. It’s one of the most inventive submissions of all time. Essentially an inverted Sharpshooter / Surfboard hybrid, if it’s locked in properly, there’s a huge amount of torque being applied on an opponent’s arms, legs, and back – so basically everything. With no escape in sight, anyone would have to tap from it.

The Black Widow

The Black Widow

The Black Widow

AJ Lee might wind up going down as the smallest wrestler ever that wasn’t classified as a “little person.” That didn’t stop the petite pixie from crafting a terrifying submission move, aptly named The Black Widow. Since she was so tiny, any opponent might think they could just heave her around the ring. But once she spun herself around your body, you’d be locked into her vice before you even noticed. One leg sling around your head while she wrenches back on your arm and if you try to move, you would just fall to mat, leaving no choice but to tap.

Hell’s Gate

Hell’s Gate by The Undertaker

Hell’s Gate by The Undertaker

Once it became established that the Undertaker was far better in the ring than having bigger monsters fed to him, it was on. The Deadman began having all kinds of marquee matches against all sorts of great competitors. He would eventually allow his love of MMA to shine through when he is starting using the Gogoplata submission hold for his own. The Hell’s Gate locks your arm and neck right on top of the Phenom’s shin. Then he pulls on his other leg as hard as he can. Just press on the back of your neck for one second. That discomfort – imagine the Reaper Of Wayward Souls doing that tenfold.

Figure Four / Figure Eight

Figure Four / Figure Eight

Figure Four / Figure Eight

For nearly forty years, when Ric Flair had you on the mat, grabbed a leg and let out a “Wooo!” You knew that the Figure Four was coming. Now it’s something his daughter Charlotte does before snapping on her variation of the move – the Figure Eight. Over time the move had become a little bit of an inside joke since Ric was too busy putting guys over than actually winning matches with the Figure Four. When Charlotte bridges up on the other hand, if her opponent is nowhere near the ropes, expect the match to be over really quick.

 

Kimura Lock

Kimura Lock

Kimura Lock

He doesn’t break it out that often anymore, but when a move is associated with Brock Lesnar, it’s a safe bet that it’s going to be a very dangerous submission hold. The Kimura or Key Lock is an MMA move that can legitimately break a fighter’s arm if they’re caught and can’t escape. In storyline, Brock used it to break both Triple H and HBK’s arm. In reality, it’s the same move that eventual Tough Enough winner Daniel Puder caught Kurt Angle with in Puder’s only claim to wrestling fame.

Dragon Sleeper

Dragon Sleeper

Dragon Sleeper

If you can control an opponent’s body, you can more or less do anything you want to them. If you get them in the Ultimo Dragon’s Dragon Sleeper you can do all kinds of irreversible damage. Grab them from the back as if you were going to deliver a Scorpion Death Drop. But instead of driving your opponent into the mat, cinch in on the reverse facelock and yank as hard as you can.

For extra pain, Ultimo and others who have used the move would bring their opponents to a kneeling position where they could dig a knee into the small of their back. If you’ve ever wrestled around with your friends, be careful pulling this move out – it’s the epitome of “Don’t Try This At Home.”

Walls Of Jericho

Walls Of Jericho

Walls Of Jericho

Chris Jericho is persona non-grata in the WWE these days due to his allegiance with AEW. That doesn’t mean that his variant of the Boston Crab, The Walls Of Jericho isn’t still one of greatest submission finishers in all of wrestling.

The human body isn’t meant to be elevated from its chest with 245 pounds of Chris Jericho leaning into it – knee first. The guy likes to reinvent himself as much as Madonna does and come up with all kinds of finishers, the AEW legend’s original finisher is still his best.

Top 10 International Fast Bowlers of All Time

Mitchell Starc
Top 10 International Fast Bowlers of All Time

Fast bowlers running in, bowling quick bouncers, accurate yorker, just terrorizing batsmen, or even bowling a good line and length troubling them with accuracy is a rare sight these days.  Fast bowlers in form, bowling in rhythm, are a delight for a captain, even in a flat track.  Even if the conditions are unhelpful, they can bowl those quick bouncers and suddenly bring their team back in the game.

Yes, they are prone to injuries, and historically speaking, it has ended promising careers, but we have seen bowlers overcome those adversities and become one of the greats of the game.  So, today we will talk about the ‘Top 10 fast bowlers of all time’ who have made international cricket what it is today.

Courtney Walsh

Courtney Walsh

Courtney Walsh

Standing tall at almost 6’6”, Courtney Walsh, the fast right-arm bowler, was one of the best fast bowlers of all time.  This big Jamaican pacer made his debut in 1984 but always remained bowler alongside Marshall and Ambrose in the 80s.

It was only in the 1990s when Walsh got the opportunity with the new ball, and from there on, he never looked back.  Courtney had the rare ability to swing the ball both ways quickly from the same spot, which made him unplayable in any condition. Along with his partner Ambrose, Walsh formed one of the best new-ball bowling pairs in the 90s and helped the West Indies win many matches.

Even though he lost quite a bit of his pace towards the end of his career but never lost his wicket-taking ability and his 66 Test wickets in 2000 were proof of that.  He managed to pick 519 Test wickets and 227 ODI wickets and maintained a good economy throughout his entire career.

Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Aaron Starc (born 30 January 1990) is an Australian international cricketer who plays for the Australian national team and New South Wales in domestic cricket. He is a left-arm fast bowler and a capable lower order left-handed batsman. He was a prominent member of the victorious Australian squad that won the 2015 Cricket World Cup and was declared Player of the Tournament as a result of his consistent performances. With 49 World Cup wickets, he is the joint 5th highest wicket taker in tournament’s history.

On 15 November 2015, Starc delivered the fastest recorded delivery in a Test match, of 160.4 km/h against Ross Taylor of New Zealand. Starc then became the fastest bowler to take (over) 100 ODI wickets on 21 August 2016 against Sri Lanka, doing so in 52 innings and breaking Saqlain Mushtaq’s 19-year-old record of taking 100 wickets in 53 innings. However, just 19 months later on 25 March 2018, Starc had his record broken by Rashid Khan, who took 100 wickets in only 44 innings.  As of February 2019, Starc nevertheless remains the fastest paceman to achieve the feat.

On 30 December 2016, against Pakistan in the Boxing Day Test, he broke Andrew Symonds’ record of the most sixes at the MCG in one innings, hitting 7 sixes.

Sir Richard Hadlee

Sir Richard Hadlee

Sir Richard Hadlee

One of the best fast bowlers in cricketing history, Sir Richard Hadlee, was regarded by many as the best cricketer New Zealand has ever produced. Highly accurate with a lethal outswinger, Hadlee carried the entire New Zealand bowling on his shoulders in both 70s and the 80s.

In the beginning, he was one of the quickest bowlers in the international scene, but with injuries had to cut down on his pace. Instead of troubling through pace, Hadlee, with his whippy side-on bowling action, generated steep bounce out of any surface. Therefore, he managed to generate discomforting pace, bounce, and movement of any surface, which troubled batsmen worldwide.

A tough competitor, Hadlee developed a particular liking for Australia, and in the 23 Test matches he played against them, he managed to pick 130 wickets.  He was the first bowler to breach the barrier of 400 wickets and retired after picking 431 wickets from 86 tests at an average of just 22.29.  Shortly after his retirement, he received his knighthood and was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in 2009.

Dale Steyn

Dale Steyn

Dale Steyn

When rhythm, stamina, and intensity get combined with deadly pace and pitch-perfect outswingers – only then we get someone like a Dale Steyn.  In an era where we only get batting-friendly pitches and smaller boundaries – Dale Steyn has shown that bowlers too can dominate, and he did.  He made his Test debut in 2004, but it was only in 2008 when we saw him in his best.  He managed to pick 86 wickets in 14 matches and earned the prestigious ICC Player of the Year award.

One of the best fast bowlers of his generation, Steyn, with his impressive long run-up and lethal outswing, troubled batsmen worldwide  His 7-51 against India on a flat wicket in Nagpur remains one of the best exhibitions of reverse swing bowling in recent years.  Steyn formed a fearsome bowling partnership with Morne Morkel and helped the Proteas dominate all over the world.

He was the fastest South African bowler to reach the 300-wicket mark and is currently the highest wicket-taker for South Africa in test match cricket.  Even with a career plagued by multiple injuries, he has managed to pick over 439 test wickets at an astonishing strike rate of 44.3

Dennis Lillee

Dennis Lillee

Dennis Lillee

One of the best fast bowlers of all time, Dennis Lillee, was considered the godfather of fast bowling by greats like Imran Khan and Malcolm Marshall.  One of the most iconic cricketers of the 70s and early 80s, Lilee, from the beginning, was not only quick but was quite a character both on and off the field.

With his classical side-on action, he had immaculate control over his line and length and a natural outswinger to keep the slips interested all the time.  After a series of injuries, he had to remodel his action, his pace got reduced, but he made it up with sheer accuracy and intensity.

Lillee, along with Jeff Thompson, formed one of the most fearsome bowling pairs and terrorized batsmen all over the world in the 70s  Lillee performed consistently throughout his career and became the first bowler to breach the barrier of the 350 wickets mark.  He retired in 1983 and continues to play an essential role in grooming young fast bowlers from all over the world.

Curtly Ambrose

Curtly Ambrose

Curtly Ambrose

Standing tall at 6 feet 7 inches, Curtly Ambrose was one of the best fast bowlers the world has ever seen.  He managed to extract bounce on all surfaces with his intimidating height and high arm action and made batsmen play almost every delivery.  He had impeccable control over line and length, and with a hint of seam movement, kept both edges of the bat interested.  Moreover, he was very economical in his bowling and had a very well-disguised slower delivery.

Along with Courtney Walsh, Curtly formed one of the most destructive bowling pairs in the 90s.  He bowled more than 1100 maidens, and in the 98 Tests he played, he managed to pick 405 wickets at an average of 20.99 

Malcolm Marshall

Malcolm Marshall

Malcolm Marshall

One of the best fast bowlers of the golden era of West Indian Cricket, Malcolm Marshall was one of the best bowlers of the late 1970s and 80s  Often considered the best West Indian fast bowler of all time, his Test bowling average of 20.94 is the best among all bowlers who have taken 200 or more wickets.  He was not as tall(5 ft 11 in) as his contemporaries like Ambrose, Walsh, or a Joel garner but generated a quick bouncer with his skiddy action.  Malcolm could swing both ways, and with a very well-disguised bouncer, batsmen were always on their backfoot

He was also a handy lower-order batsman, scoring ten fifties in tests and two in ODIs.  After the 1992 Cricket World Cup, he ended his international career, and in his entire career, he managed to pick 376 Test and 157 ODI wickets.

James Anderson

James Anderson

James Anderson

The best swing bowler in the world right now, James Anderson is one of the best fast bowlers.  He made his international debut in 2002 and quickly produced a sensational spell of 4-29 in the 2003 World Cup against Pakistan.   But he remained in and out of the team, but it was only in late 2007 that he became a regular member of the English team. His stand-out performance came in the 2010 Ashes, where he managed to pick 24 wickets, and from there on, never looked back.

A classical side-on bowler, he is equally effective with both old and the new ball, and when on the song, was pretty much unplayable.  Along with Stuart Broad, Anderson formed one of the best bowling pairs in recent times by picking more than 600 wickets together.  In the ICC Champions Trophy match against Australia (2013), Anderson picked his 235th wicket and became England’s leading wicket-taker in the ODIs.  He is the most successful fast bowler in test cricket with 614 test wickets and the 3rd highest wicket-taker in test cricket.

Wasim Akram

Wasim Akram

Wasim Akram

The ”Sultan of swing” Wasim Akram was probably the greatest left-arm pacer in cricket history.  He was a member of Pakistan’s 1992 World-cup winning team and the leading wicket-taker in that tournament.  A magician with both new and the old ball, Wasim could swing both ways, which made him one of the most difficult bowlers of his era.

Besides, he had immaculate control over his line and length, which made him unplayable even in unhelpful conditions.  But we will best remember him for his ability to reverse the old ball and hit lethal inswinging yorkers, especially in the death overs when it comes to ODI cricket.  Along with Waqar Yonis in the 90s, Wasim terrorized the batsman from all over the world with sheer pace and swing bowling.  He was the first to cross the tally of 500 ODI wickets and ended his career with 414 Test and 502 ODI wickets.

Glenn McGrath

Glenn McGrath

Glenn McGrath

One of the greats of Australian cricket, Glenn McGrath, was probably the best fast bowlers in the 150 years of cricketing history.  In an international career spanning 14 years, he outclassed many of his contemporary fast bowlers, not in terms of pace or bounce but by sheer accuracy.  McGrath did not have the pace and prodigious swing to terrorize the batsmen, but his greatest strength lay in his ability to bowl accurate line and lengths.  He formed an effective bowling partnership with Shane Warne and just crippled the opposition batting.

Mcgrath picked twenty-nine 5-wicket hauls in his entire career among which, ten came against their arch-rival England. He was one of the key reasons for Australia’s domination of cricket from the mid-90s and in the early 2000s  McGrath managed to win the man-of-the-tournament award in the 2007 Cricket World Cup and helped Australia win that tournament. He is the second most successful fast bowler after James Anderson in test cricket with 563 Test wickets.  He held the record for the most number of wickets (71) in the Cricket World Cup and was rightly inducted into the ICC Hall of fame in January 2013
