The Australian became the leading paceman in Test cricket surpassing West Indian Courtney Walsh. He is now third in all-time list after teammate Shane Warne (623 wickets) and Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan (560).

McGrath showed his class producing a devastating spell and grabbed the prize wickets of two of the best batsmen of the world -- Rahul Dravid and Lara.

Dravid was out for duck, offering a regulation catch to Gilchrist while a shuffling Lara was trapped right in front on a ball that held its line after pitching on the middle stump.
