Former Australia legend Glenn McGrath could be training young Indian pacers as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the MRF Pace Foundation may soon join hands.

McGrath had recently replaced Dennis Lillee as the director of the pace foundation in Chennai.
A delegation from the pace foundation made a presentation to the officials at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore on August 8.

“We’re happy with the way the presentation went about but whether to have a tie-up is the BCCI’s decision. I understand they had a lot of decisions to make at the meeting yesterday and they gave us a little time to make our case. We’ll wait for them to come back to us,” Senthilnathan, in-charge of the MRF Pace Foundation and one of the two members who gave the presentation, said, as reported by Mumbai Mirror.

“It is not only about bowling academy and training for the pace bowlers. The Foundation has a rehabilitation centre and also facilities to coach the coaches. So it should be a good deal,” an unnamed NCA official was quoted by the newspaper.
