Glenn McGrath Bothered Over The Future Of ODI Cricket After Almost Empty Stands in MCG

Australia Cricket Team Whitewashed England by 3-0 in the recently concluded ODI Series. Australia was quite ruthless in its approach as they never allowed  England Cricket Team to stamp their authority. It looked as if England were exhausted as on 13th November they had played the final of the T20 World Cup 2022 and on 17th November the series got started.

England would be dejected as they didn’t show any intent throughout the series. In the 3rd ODI match, the team made an ugly record of losing the match by 221 runs which is their biggest defeat in ODI Cricket.

Glenn McGrath on ODI Cricket

In the 3rd ODI at MCG, there were approximately 4,000 spectators at the ground which was quite shocking. Glenn McGrath was seen having an interaction with PA News Agency and was asked about the 3rd ODI at MCG. “It was so disappointing to see crowds like that, ODIs are really under the pump at the moment. Melbourne is classed as the sporting capital of Australia, if not the world, they absolutely love their sport. So for them to turn out in the numbers they did speaks volumes about where we’re at.” said McGrath.

“The international schedule is tough enough. I think they have to respect every series and every game, it has to mean something. I do hope ODI cricket carries on, I’ve got a lot of great memories of it and I would still put the ODI World Cup as more important than the T20. But the format is under the pump and we need to look at how we keep people coming to these games.” he added.

Great Triumph for Australia

The England Series for Australia was quite fruitful as the team performed exceptionally well under the new skipper Pat Cummins. The team was quite dominant as the team got an exciting pair in the form of Travis Head & David Warner.

Skipper Pat Cummins was quite spot on with his captaincy as he was rotating his bowlers quite perfectly. It didn’t look as if he was captaining for the 1st time in the ODI format. He was well accompanied by Josh Hazlewood who  had taken the reins for the 2nd ODI match.
