Chennai, Sep 2 : The Indian cricket board Tuesday signed a five-year deal with the MRF Pace Foundation to train fast bowlers under Australian fast bowling great Glenn McGrath.
As a part of the deal, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will send current and upcoming pace bowlers to the academy to train under McGrath, who is director of the Pace Foundation. The bowlers will be split into elite and probables categories and the training will be imparted in batches.
