Butbutbut, McGrath doesn't swing the ball! He's only straight up-and-down!!
But seriously, where's the yorker he castled Sohail with at The Gabba? The **** was on 99, hitting them well and had his off-stump removed by a reverse-swinging nightmare ball.
How good the lead-up to the second one, though? Just got progressively fuller with balls that went away/in/away/in and you could see Smith getting toey as McGrath's line got tigher. Then rather than going away again, threw in the in-swinger when, by Smith's shot, looked like he was feeling for the one going the other way.
Just so good. Shows you how much more important it is to have a plan and build pressure than to go for the magic ball all the time.

Damn yeah, forgot all about the Sohail yorker! That was stunning.
THE FIRST TIME ROSS EMERSON CALLED MURALI FOR THROWING!!! @ THE GABBA 95/96 - YouTube
Murali's leg break in this video looks quite pure. Which defies another famous video I saw of him with Ravi Shastri bowling in an arm brace where they claimed he has a birth defect where he can't straighten his elbow.
I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowdOverrated XI Warner, Burns, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaulone day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
I know you don't intend it but that reeks of confirmation bias to me. I can see his arm bent the same with both - it's stuck that way.
