McGrath’s statue finds itself alongside other cricketing legends like <a href="/tags/Don-Bradman/post" target="_blank">Don Bradman</a>, <a href="/tags/Sachin-Tendulkar/post" target="_blank">Sachin Tendulkar</a> and <a href="/tags/Shane-Warne/post" target="_blank">Shane Warne</a>.<br /> <br /> According to an <em>NDTV</em> report, senior sculptor David Gardiner and his team undertook the task of reproducing the structure from 300 measurements and completed it in approximately three to four months.<br /> <br /> "We took some motion capture videos of McGrath doing his bowling action, which was really interesting for us to sculpt," said Gardiner. The decision to sculpt McGrath’s statue was decided by a nation-wide poll which went in favour of the legendary fast bowler. McGrath's outfit resembles his look during the 2006-07 <a href="/tags/Ashes/post" target="_blank">Ashes</a>.<br /> <br /> A delighted McGrath said, "It's just so life-like, they even put every strand of hair individually, which took around six weeks. To be voted and seeing the finished product makes it that little bit more special. I think it means that little bit more to me because people wanted me in here."<br /> <br /> McGrath played 124 Test matches for Australia with 563 wickets to his name. He went past Courtney Walsh’s record of 519 in 2005 to become the leading wicket-taker among fast bowlers in Test cricket. He last played for Australia in 2006-07 Ashes which the Aussies comprehensively won 5-0.
