Glenn McGrath touched down at the prestigious MRF pace foundation to mentor Indian pacers after agreeing to work with the Chennai based center.


If everything goes out right for the MRF Pace Academy, then former Australian quickie McGrath may soon be seen in a mentors role to budding Indian pacers.


The Pace Academy, which has McGrath working as a director in its Chennai base, has already submitted a proposal to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which if approved will see McGrath donning the mentors cap reported the Times of India.


A select band of pacers from the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore will head off to Chennai to train under the watchful eyes of McGrath.


“It will be a great opportunity. I would love to work with the young Indian crop,” said McGrath who has played 124 Tests, 250 ODIs and 2 Twenty 20 matches for Australia.
