From the Ashes: Glenn McGrath
Test Match Special
The first episode of a new series where the BBC’s Chief cricket writer Stephan Shemilt discovers some of the untold stories from the Ashes. In this edition Stephan talks to one of the most successful Ashes performers of all time, Glenn McGrath. During arguably the most famous Ashes series in 2005, McGrath trod on a ball before play at Edgbaston and missed the game through injury. He gives a fascinating account of what happened next, what it was like to be forced to be a spectator at the game and how Manchester United helped him make a near miracle recovery to be able to play the next Test against all the odds.
