Published on Saturday, 01 November 2014 17:06

McGrath 410px 01-11-144Australian champion fast bowler Glenn McGrath has named the best five bowlers in the world at the moment, judged over the last 12 months and across all three formats of the game.

Speaking on Fox Sports’ Inside Cricket, the 124-Test veteran made a conscience decision not to show any bias to his country of birth, opting for only one Australian in the top five.

Australia's Mitchell Johnson has been named for the top slot while South Africa's Dale Steyn and England's James Anderson have been named as number 02 and 03 respectively.

Two Sri Lankans, Lasith Malinga and Rangana Herath has been named for the 04th and 05th slots respectively.

McGrath holds the world record for the highest number of Test wickets by a fast bowler and is fourth on the all-time list, with the top three wicket takers Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, and Anil Kumble all being spin bowlers.

He has also taken the sixth highest number of One Day International wickets, and holds the record for the most wickets in the Cricket World Cup.
