Glenn McGrath to train Indian pacers soon?

Former Australia pacer Glenn McGrath may work with the Indian pacers soon, according to a report in the Times of India.

McGrath, who represented Australia in 124 Tests, 250 ODIs and 2 T20 internationals, termed it as a good chance to work with the young crop of Indian bowlers. "It will be a great opportunity. I would love to work with the young Indian crop," McGrath told Times of India.

The performance of the Indian bowlers was highly criticised in their recent 4-0 drubbing in the ODIs in New Zealand and, McGrath observed something that they failed to execute against the Kiwis.

"I haven't seen a single bowler who can bowl six good yorkers...If he can, I am sure the batsmen won't be able to take him apart that easily," McGrath said.

Joe Dawes, another Aussie, is currently the bowling coach of Team India.
