Australia’s fast-medium pacer Glenn Donald McGrath, who took over as coaching director from Dennis Lillee, is all set to up-bring a group of rookie Australian players at India's MRF academy during his visit to the country in June.

The 45-year-old bowler will supervise a contingent from Australia's National Cricket Centre (NCC), which will tour Chennai in early June.

Before they are joined by four talented fast bowlers and NCC head coach Troy Cooley for the second half, Australia's spin coach John Davison will take a group of batsmen and spin bowlers to India on Sunday for the first phase of the camp.

This exchange, a part of the reciprocal arrangement between Cricket Australia (CA) and MRF which has entered its 19th year, provides an opportunity to two talented Indian fast bowlers and a coach to witness the NCC later in June.

Troy Cooley believes the experience will surely boost the skills of the young set of players and will also provide them the invaluable exposure of travelling to India.
