Glenn McGrath, a retired international Australian cricketer, took a number of five-wicket hauls during his career. In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five–for" or "fifer")[1][2] refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement,[3] and fewer than 40 bowlers have taken more than 15 five-wicket hauls at international level in their cricketing careers.[4][5]

McGrath made his Test debut in November 1993, against New Zealand,[6] but it was not until March 1995 that he took his first five-wicket haul in Australia's victory over the West Indies in Barbados; his performance earned him the man of the match award.[7] He followed that three weeks later with six wickets in a defeat in Trinidad.[8] McGrath took 10 of his 29 Test five-wicket hauls in The Ashes (the traditional name for Test matches between Australia and England). During the 1997 Ashes series, McGrath "humiliated" England, taking eight wickets in a single innings at Lord's and restricting England to 77, the lowest total in any Test match at the ground since 1888.[9] A month later, he dismissed seven English batsmen in the first innings at The Oval but despite these performances, Australia did not win either Test match.[10][11] The 2001 Ashes series saw McGrath make four five-wicket hauls in consecutive matches. He twice took five-wicket hauls in both innings of a Test match – in March 1999 he dismissed five West Indian batsmen in each innings of the first Test of the Frank Worrell Trophy;[12] in the following year, he took ten wickets against India at the Sydney Cricket Ground.[13]

Having made his One Day International (ODI) debut in December 1993,[6] McGrath took his first one-day five-wicket haul in the following year, in the final of the Will's Triangular Series against Pakistan.[14] Australia won each of the seven ODI matches in which McGrath took a five-wicket haul, and McGrath was given the man of the match award on six of these occasions. Retiring from international cricket in 2007,[15] he took 29 five-wicket hauls in Test cricket and 7 in ODIs. As of October 2009, he is fifth overall in all-time Test five-wicket haul takers,[4] and fourth in the ODI list.[5]
