The spearhead of Australia's bowling attack, McGrath goes into the Ashes series needing just one more wicket to complete 500 wickets in Test cricket.
The lanky fast bowler is not the quickest in the game, but his unerring accuracy makes him one of the most dangerous around.
McGrath gets even meaner against England, claiming a wicket almost every 45 balls, as compared to his career strike rate of 51.12.
There is little he has not achieved as a bowler. He has a Test hat-trick to his credit and is the most prolific fast bowler for Australia.
