New Delhi: There are some players who instantly make a mark in international cricket. Glenn McGrath, for that matter, had a rather ordinary start to his international career. In a Test match against New Zealand in 1993 at Perth, it was the first time that the world saw fragile-looking McGrath.
This was the first test of the series, and the pacer took 2/92 in the first innings. The match was however dominated by the Kiwis, who in reply to Australia's 398, scored 419 runs. For New Zealand Andrew Jones top-scored with 143 runs. Chris Cairns chipped in with a handy 78 runs.
In the second sojourn, McGrath got only one wicket. The match will also be remembered for a brilliant ton by Mark Taylor (142), and Michael Slater's 99. The match ended in a drab draw, as none of the sides scored runs at a brisk pace.
