G.D. McGrath 5-54 v EnglandBack to boards

Glenn McGrath claimed another spot on the Lord's Honours Boards when he took 5-54 during Australia's Ashes victory over England in 2001.

Returning to the Home of Cricket for the first time since his record-breaking achievement of 8-38 in 1997, McGrath was handed the ball on day one after Steve Waugh won the toss and elected to bowl.

Once again, McGrath proved too good. He reached the Honours Boards for a second time, taking the wickets of Michael Atherton, Mark Butcher, Graham Thorpe, Alec Stewart and Craig White for just 54 runs conceded, as England could only score 187 in their first innings.

After Australia scored 401 in response, McGrath took a further three wickets during England's second innings to seal victory for Australia and claim the man-of-the-match award for his performance.
