McGrath gets 8 as Aussies Demolish Pakistan post #1  quote:



Cricket / Eight-wicket McGrath demolishes Pakistan

Paceman Glenn McGrath recorded the second-best bowling figures by an Australian in test history to power his team to a 491-run win over Pakistan on the fourth morning of the first test in Perth yesterday.

Resuming at 18 for one and chasing 564 for victory, Pakistan had no answer to McGrath, who took eight for 24, as the world's top-ranked side bowled out the tourists for 72 to claim a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

McGrath picked up the first seven wickets in Pakistan's woeful second innings before fellow seamer Michael Kasprowicz captured the eighth and 10th wickets to record figures of two for four.

Yesterday's victory by Australia was the fourth-highest winning runs margin in test cricket and Pakistan's innings was its fourth-lowest total in test history. McGrath's haul was his 25th five-wicket or better performance in tests and came in his 104th appearance.

"I had seven-for. I was looking up thinking this might be my best chance for a 10-for," McGrath said after the game.

"But then Kasper came in and ruined it," McGrath added. "I couldn't be happier at the moment. Toward the end, that's as good as I've ever felt bowling."

It was a good game. But Pakistan just looked like they weren't even trying or something. We managed to blitz them. We dropped a few catches and stuffed some runs up, but still won by a gazillion runs.
