AUS vs ENG: Glenn McGrath worried about future of ODI Cricket after almost empty stands in MCG


The Australian cricket team whitewashed England 3-0 in the recently concluded ODI Series. Australia was quite ruthless in its approach as they never allowed the England cricket team to brand their authority. It looked like England were exhausted as on November 13 they had played the 2022 T20 World Cup final and on November 17 the series got under way.

England would be dejected as they showed no intention at all throughout the series. In the 3rd ODI match, the team achieved an ugly record losing the match by 221 runs which is their biggest defeat in ODI Cricket.

Glenn McGrath on ODI Cricket

The 3rd ODI at MCG saw around 4,000 spectators on the ground which was quite shocking. Glenn McGrath interacted with PA News Agency and was asked about the 3rd ODI at MCG. “It was so disappointing to see such crowds, ODIs are really under the pump at the moment. Melbourne is considered the sporting capital of Australia if not the world, they absolutely love their sport. So for them to come out in the numbers they’ve hit speaks volumes about where we’re at. McGrath said.

“The international program is tough enough already. I think they should respect every series and every game, it has to mean something. I really hope ODI cricket continues, I have many fond memories of it and I would still consider the ODI World Cup more important than the T20. But the format is under the pump and we need to look at how we get people to come to these games.” he added.

Great triumph for Australia

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

Skipper Pat Cummins was spot on with his captain’s armband as he spun his bowlers perfectly. It didn’t look like he was captaining the ODI format for the first time. He was well coached by Josh Hazlewood who had taken the reins for the 2nd ODI match.
