Australia’s bowling legend, Glenn McGrath has named archrivals England as the favorites for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, slated to begin on 30th May in England and Wales. McGrath, who had been involved in various fierce battles with England over the years, stated that he cannot remain biased his whole life.
“England, a very good one-day unit. To me they are the favourites going into this World Cup, so I think they’ll do very well. Probably! I can’t remain biased my whole life. You’ve got to go on current form. The England team, the way they go about it, they have impressed me. They have scored some big, big totals,” he said.
McGrath retired from international cricket as Player of the Tournament in the 2007 World Cup. He now believes that apart from England, India is one of the toughest teams to beat during the tournament.
