New Delhi: Jan 24, 2013

Former Australian bowling great Glenn McGrath is all set to take on the job of director at the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai.

“On the way to Chennai for my first stint at the MRF Pace Foundation. Looking forward to it but missing @saramcgrath11 & the kids already,” tweeted McGrath Thursday.

“Haven’t arrived in Chennai yet. Sitting in Singapore airport waiting for my flight.”

The legendary pacer, who retired at the end of the 2007 World Cup which Australia won, was holidaying in Hawaii with his wife and kids.

“Spent an incredible 2 weeks with @saramcgrath11 & the kids in Hawaii. Weather was perfect everyday. Very well rested now back to work!!” added McGrath, who took over the job as director from Dennis Lillee last year.
