McGrath picks best batsmen and bowlers of current generation
Former Australia pacer Glenn McGrath has picked the best batsmen and bowlers of the present generation, in which he chose one Indian from each category.
McGrath is currently in India to take part in a private session hosted by HCL Technologies during the World Economic Forum (WEF). During the session, the three-time World Cup winner not only expressed his views on various topics, but also discussed explicitly about the current scenerio of cricket.
According to the New South Wales-born player, South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada and India’s Jasprit Bumrah are the best bowlers in the world at the moment. He also called himself a big fan of the South African speedster.
“Bumrah is quite a unique bowler. He doesn’t have a long run-up like a lot of fast bowlers have. But he has got good pace, incredible control, and the right attitude,” said McGrath.
He also added, “This South African bowler Rabada is an amazing bowler, I’m a big fan of his. I’m leaving Australian bowlers out of this list as I feel they all are great.”
McGrath chose the best batsmen of current time as well, in which he picked his compatriot Steve Smith alongside the Indian captain Virat Kohli.
“Smith is a little bit unique; he is a little strange, he is not normal, but has got a great hand and eye coordination. Technically, he is not a textbook batsman, but the way he bats is amazing,” McGrath said on Smith.
“On the other hand, there is Kohli. He is a class player and is very technically correct. He is a little bit unusual and very aggressive on the filed, especially as an Indian captain, but he is a class player.”
