‘If that’s England taking that catch, that’s out’ – Glenn McGrath brands Mitchell Starc catch decision ‘a disgrace’
Ashes 2023: Glenn McGrath has branded the decision to rule out Mitchell Starc’s attempted catch of Ben Duckett “the biggest load of rubbish” he has seen.
The moment caused significant debate, with Starc catching the ball cleanly to begin with before pressing the ball into the turf as he slid. A statement from the MCC clarified that the right decision was reached, but McGrath, speaking on BBC Test Match Special, was incensed.
“I’m sorry, that is the biggest load of rubbish I have ever seen,” he said. He has got that ball under control. That ball is under control. I’m sorry, I’ve seen everything this game has to offer. If that is not out, then every other catch that’s ever been taken should be not out. That is a disgrace. I’ve seen everything now. I cannot believe that.
