Profile

A neat, upright batsman with a penchant for the drive, McGrath started his Yorkshire career in a blaze of glory at 19, in 1995. "The one bonus was the development of Anthony McGrath into a player of obvious class," intoned that year's Wisden, and 999 runs the following season won him a place on an England A tour of Pakistan when his captain was Nasser Hussain.
