Of course, most grandparents will refuse the cash, but don't let that stop you.

Legend! Glenn McGrath talks through his famous Test hat-trick against the Windies. ...

 

Comment on Facebook

I was there for that Hat trick, just wide of the sight screen . There were big queues still trying to get into the ground as the wickets tumbled .

Greatest bowler ever played the game with immaculate line and length. Sometimes unplayable

He was one of the fittest fast bowlers I've ever seen in my life who used to maintain himself brilliantly well......

One of our greats.. sure miss his speed and consistency.... Ooo aaa Glen Mcgrath

Great fast bowler all the time of cricket history.

Stephen Hamer them days when sticky tape wasnt invented 😂

His very good man!!!

Abir Mahmud not as good as you mate lol

MeGrath is my bowling sir and coch :) (y) <3

Absolutely awesome and a champion.

Josh Singer not as good as siddle’s

Oh ah Glen McGrath say oh ah Glen McGrath 💚💚

Paul Johnston weren’t you walking in the gate when he took the third ?

Grant Boucher where were you when this happened?

I was there with the old man. On the western side lawn and there were so many people waiting to get in as it was quite early in the days play. Poor people 😂

My absolute favourite cricketing moment!

In my dream Sir McGrath is still a famous cricketer.

More of the GREAT DAYS of CRICKET. God bless.

Matthew Said remember this hat trick when we were destroying the history room in year 10? Haha

Great bowler certainly in the legends category

One of the all time greatest bowlers, hats off to Glen McGrath 👌

Ooh argh Glen McGrath!!

Just love his consistency👍

Liz Knox ooh agh Glenn McGrath say ooh argh Glenn McGrath!!! ❤️💞❤️

Hoo haa. Glen McGrath !

Mark Waugh, is SIMPLY THE BEST fieldsman that I have ever seen and I have watched a lot of cricket over the last 50 years!!!!

I hope some of those bowlers are still buying his beers - turned their pies into wickets!

My absolute fave Oz cricketer of all time. 🏏💖 My 7 year old fraternal twin boys think they are Steve and Mark Waugh!... as does their Mum!!

Loved him as a player, can’t stand him as a commentator

Who knew they had cameras at all our games watching me field Brayden Jarrad Daniel Aj Matt Mathew Louis

soft hands and amazing reflexes!

Will never forget him putting Vettori on top of Lillie marsh stand at waca!! what a star he was

Mark Waugh often appears to take catches after the ball has passed him. His ability to do this cleanly in one hand is the reason for him taking so many catches. He never went at the ball hard but went with the ball and as a result rarely fumbled a catch. His technique is unique.

Mark Waugh and Jonty Rhodes - the best fielders I have ever seen 🏏

Better get your lube and tissues out for this one Aaron Payne 😂

Brilliance in every aspect of the game .

Smorgasbord of brilliance there

Where’s that one where he took a bribe and the lied about it?

Gabriel Radus need to do some more practise with that Vortex ...

Still remember this catch of mark waugh of Inzi. It was Inzi who played extremely great in this innings against some top quality bowling in the shape of Glenn Macgrath and Shine warne

The BEST catcher l've ever seen. Simply brilliant 💚💛

One of the best pair of hands ever!

Should of shown some of the run outs too. The catches are awesome. But some of his run outs were unbelievable.

In my opinion he has the best hands in the field ever.

The best cricket has seen. I still love his lethargic batting.Making shots look so easy. I reckon he is one of the best players of leg glance.. textbook style 🙂

No wonder, Australia was the best team of that time.

He may not be in the same class as ones mentioned here but Nathan Lyon is pretty good on occasions.

Both Steve & Mark WAUGH's are LEDGENDS of the game,

Awesome,superb and astonishing Mark waugh.👌👍

Phil Lang remind you of someone in gully 😉

This is great but when will the International Arrivals & Departure toilets be done? Needs an extreme makeover! What a disgrace and a complete embarassment.

Candice Mordecai-Jones - passing onto you seeing as you'll be there in a few weeks! X

Christ man you would never fit on that table .

This is fantastic, when you did your upgrade engagement I placed in lots of ideas about the baby rooms. This will make life so much easier for those of us traveling with Children

Lana Tikhomirov Elaine would love it

Oh the memories Briony & Jayne. Did someone break the last one?

Needs more bollards.

This could have come in handy a few year ago Tanya Vanzwol

Michael O'Malley we could’ve used this in Darwin after landing with Z & his present in my lap!

I’ve used them, and every time they have been filthy dirty on most surfaces, bins overflowing, no soap or paper towels.

What a player Michael Bevan was! Enjoy this classic knock and then read his cricket.com.au Legends Month profile HERE: cricketa.us/2jYscUl ...

I remember watching this on the TV. Couldn't sit still and that final 4 had me screaming :)

Let’s not forget Harper you cheating sob

Michael Bevan should’ve played more test cricket. He’d be first player picked if he was playing now. Unlucky to be playing when Australia had endless depth in batting talent.

Remember it well, great game, love Michael Bevan, and sadly miss Tony Greg and Ritchie. Fantastic cricket commenters better than the one's we have today.

I watched this as a kid. I remember where i was when i was watching. This is an integral childhood memory. This also one of the reasons i don't love T20 (as their run chases are too volatile.) The suspense here watching this was insane. Gave me chills watching it over. Mr Bevan was a hero forever after.

Only 2nd to Jones and Waugh getting 120 in last 10 and Steve Waugh inside out Ambrose over cover for 6 last ball.. I hope my facts are right with who involved

Some of the most exciting matches I can ever remember are where Bevan snatched victory from the jaws of defeat

I remember actually being at the baseball in Adelaide that very night and heard the last ball in the car on way home

Tried going to this game but when I reached the SCG there were SOLD OUT signs everywhere. Some touts were offering $30 face value tickets for $100. Told them to F OFF.

What a legend in Michael Bevan. Awesome time of cricket. What an Aussie team.

What a legend! I went to this game.... what a great memory Bevan batting the innings to the end and winning the game from the final ball.

Parth Amodkar...indeed he is one of the finest cricketer..may b #2 best finisher....but bro...MSD is all time #1 finisher

Jeremy Taylor can't get much better than this. Voiced by Tony Greig and Bill Lawry and even Glen McGrath with a starring role

Ashish Phadale..One of my favorite players and the first ever match winner who used to single handle win it..Akele

Michael Bevan is No.1 One day ( Batsman) player in history till today in my opinion, his deep understanding and knowledge of his key position while batting is unbelievable...his innings are ultimate guide for one day cricket middle time batting.

excellent single by Glenn McGrath...can someone sit Bevan down with Glenn Maxwell. A bit of Bevan's composure at time would make Maxy lethal.

Michael bevan was my fav batsmen.Him chasing is almost textbook.Look at his average and you will know this was a player made for t20s....The original Mr cricket...

Probably the best batsman who could build a partnership with the tail enders! Seen him doing that more often then not! What a player!

The best finisher in the game till MS Dhoni started his career. Still, he is the second best finisher in the history now.

So much brilliance, Michael. Bev the ledge, McGrath fumbling the ball into his foot, and those epic sleeves.

Best finisher , I really don’t know how and why he was cast off , because he was in good form and all of a sudden there was team without bevan

A really nice knock.Just amazing.I think the viewers of this match sitting in Sydney stedium are very lucky.......thanks cricket Australia for giving us a chance to see this knock as I born after 4 years of this match.....

I remember listening to this match on the radio, pretty sure they weren't televising it in Sydney. What a classic.

Cain if this doesn’t get you ginned up I don’t know what will! #WouldYouKnowMyNameIfYouSawMeWithMichaelBevan

I remember Bevan stunning performance to finish the match even Paul Reffiel also scoring 33 runs 👍👌🏏
