Australia pace bowler Glenn McGrath has been rested for the second one-day international against the World XI and replaced by Stuart Clark, Cricket Australia said on Thursday.

The 35-year-old McGrath spearheaded a four-pronged Australian seam attack that strangled the free-scoring World XI and bowled them out for 162 when chasing 256 for victory in the first match at Melbourne's Docklands Stadium on Wednesday.

McGrath, who complained of tightness in his legs after the match, bowled a miserly opening seven-over spell for only 13 runs and took the wickets of Virender Sehwag and Jacques Kallis to set up Australia's crushing win.
