[WATCH]: Australian Cricket Legend Glenn McGrath Narrowly Escapes From Python Attack At His Residence

In a recent video, the renowned Australian cricketer Glenn McGrath was captured handling a python in his residence. The Cricket World Cup 2023 has officially begun, with participating teams announcing their squads for the October 5-19 tournament in India.

Glenn McGrath, the legendary Australian cricketer, knows what it’s like to be a world champion. He was part of the Australian team that clinched three consecutive World Cup titles – the 1999, 2003, and 2007 Cricket World Cups.

While his cricketing achievements are remarkable, he also showcases his skills in a different domain. In a recent video shared by Glenn McGrath himself, he can be observed handling a python in his home.

Meanwhile, Cricket Australia has unveiled its lineup for the 2023 Cricket World Cup, with Pat Cummins set to captain the team. Esteemed players such as Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, and others have secured spots, but there’s no room for Marnus Labuschagne or the power-hitting middle-order batsman Tim David.

In contrast to the initial 18-member preliminary squad announcement, the omissions in the final roster include all-rounder Aaron Hardie, fast bowler Nathan Ellis, and emerging spinner Tanveer Sangha. Upon examining the lineup, it’s evident that Sean Abbott has been chosen over Nathan Ellis as the backup fast bowler in the squad. The selection committee has opted for the spin duo of Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa.

In the wicket-keeping department, Alex Carey and Josh Inglis make up the options. Undoubtedly, Carey is likely to be the primary choice, given his outstanding performance in the previous Cricket World Cup in England and Wales in 2019.

“Pat Cummins, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell are on track in their return to play programs. All are well placed to come back online in the coming weeks and potentially for selection in the upcoming series against India,” Bailey said. “There are eight one-day matches still to play in South Africa and India before the final squad is due to be declared. They are followed by two Cricket World Cup practice games, which offers plenty of opportunity to continue the build for the tournament.”

Squad: Pat Cummins (captain), Steve Smith, Alex Carey, Josh Inglis, Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Mitch Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa, and Mitchell Starc.
