 Q:   Ask a Question about Mc GRATH ON FIRE       
The 1st test has had it all till now, action, emotions and thrill. Australia was dismissed for a meagre 190 runs.

It was Steve Harmison in his destructive best bowling vicious deliveries to the Australian batsmen who were left gasping for breath at the end of the day.

So far so good, England looked in complete control of the test but there was one man between England and victory. His name has been associated with the Australian team since 13 years and he was none other than Glenn Mc Grath.

He seemed to be in a hurry and wanted to dictate terms to the England team as if taking revenge and McGrath quickly set about claiming his 500th Test victim and later put 4 more in his bag.

At one stage, slump caused by Glenn McGrath had reduced England to just 21 for the loss of 5 wickets, after Marcus Trescothick, Andrew Strauss, Michael Vaughan, Ian Bell and Andrew Flintoff had all failed to reach even double figures and all were dismissed cheaply.

The 35-year-old's spell of five for two in 31 deliveries began with the first victim in the name of Marcus Trescothick, who had scored just four, became the No.500 with an edge to Justin Langer in the slips.

Soon after, Strauss had joined his team mate in the pavilion, nicking McGrath to Shane Warne at first slip for two. Vaughan made only three before losing his off stump to a ball that remained very low, and then Bell was out for six chopping the ball to give an easy catch.

Flintoff had been given a huge ovation as he entered the ground by the home supporters who were expecting him to steady the ship; he too was bowled without troubling the scorers, again by a ball that stayed very low, by now the home team had realised that the wicket was playing some tricks.

But the damage had been done and two more wickets fell in the later part of the day as Mc Grath was clearly the hero of the day and England, once rejoicing was now in tears as the scoreboard read 92 for the loss of 7 wickets.
