    Glenn McGrath: I'd have named Courtney Walsh as my target

    In a shocking revelation, Glenn McGrath revealed that had he picked up the habit of naming a target a decade ago, he'd have named Courtney Walsh (batting average 7.5) as a target during series against the West Indies if Walsh was the skipper.

    The context was his declaration that Andrew Strauss, England's stand-in to the stand-in to the stand-in skipper and Alastair Cook were his targets for the forthcoming Ashes.

    In an exclusive interview with this site, McGrath justified himself by saying
    You always name the captain.
    The interesting aspect is that unlike Wisden's list, you can be named in McGrath's list twice, as Strauss, who was in last year's list has found out.

    Clearly, he's doing a lot of risk diversification. Previously he used to only name the captain or the team's best batsman - Atherton, Ganguly & Lara, to name a few.

    talking about captains, are we sure that strauss is going to be the captain?

    That also assumes that he'll be standing then.

    Portfolio management at its cricketing best definitely. But Alastair Cook? Is he that good to be named in Pigeon's list??
