Glenn McGrath, the former Australia fast bowler, will be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame on January 4th, during the New Year's Test between Australia and Sri Lanka in Sydney.

McGrath is the 68th male cricketer to make it to the hall of fame, with Brian Lara, who was inducted in September 2012, being the last before him.

Glenn McGrath played 124 Tests, claiming 563 wickets at 21.64.

That puts him second on Australia's list of wicket-takers, behind Shane Warne, and fourth on the overall list - he has the biggest tally among all fast bowlers though.

He also took 380 ODI wickets in 249 games, the joint-highest for Australia alongside Brett Lee.

He was part of Australia's World Cup-winning teams in 1999, 2003 and 2007.
