Glenn McGrath Bowls a Few Snorters Before the Ashes

Anyone with any feeling at all for the great game of cricket has to be licking his or her lips in anticipation of another Ashes series. If England win the toss and choose to bat first, when they arrive in the middle at eleven o'clock in Lord's this Thursday and the opening batsman takes his guard to face the first ball of the Ashes 2005, the man storming in will be Glenn McGrath, looking for his 500th Test wicket.

McGrath, as well as being a tremendously talented cricketer, is also a master of the subtle art of psychological warfare. Have a read of the interview with him in this morning's Guardian and whet your appetite for the battle ahead.
