McGrath may not return next year

Durban: Former Aussie speedstar Glenn McGrath, who was kept out by Dehi Daredevils through out the IPL's second season said that he may not return for the next season of IPL.

McGrath spearheaded Delhi's attack in the inaugural IPL and was among the best bowlers in the tournament, both in terms of economy rate and average.

It was Dirk Nannes who was preferred ahead of McGrath, as he maintained a sparkling form McGrath was forced to sit in the bench for all the games delhi played. Even after Delhi assured a semi-final spot, the Delhi coach was reluctant to gave a chance to McGrath.

"It has been hard to be a part of the bench, and I was hoping for a game during the league stage," he wrote in his column in the Hindustan Times. "I have asked a couple of people about why I was not being played, and I get the sense that they were worried about my fitness. I feel fitter than I did last year, but I guess I will not get a chance to prove that now."

McGrath, who was signed by Delhi for US$350,000, went on to suggest that he may not be back for the next season. "I am contracted for another year with Delhi, but that is a long way away. Right now, I would not bet on myself returning."
