Glenn McGrath was the best pacer in international cricket during the 1990s and 2000s. Riding on his sensational bowling efforts, Australia pulled off a great many matches from 1999 to 2007. McGrath, who was a fierce competitor on the field while serving the Aussie side, never shied away from getting involved in fierce verbal conversations with batters.

Back in 2003, the former Australia speedster’s habit of inciting batters backfired. During Australia’s tour of the West Indies, McGrath resorted to sledging to unsettle Sarwan in the final test in Antigua. In the second innings, the Windies had lost four wickets at a score of 237 and Sarwan was striving to bring his team back into the game.

Amidst this tense situation, McGrath went to Sarwan and asked him “What does Brian Lara’s di*k taste like?” The Windies stalwart gave it back to the Aussie saying, “I don’t know, ask your wife.” Sarwan’s reply made the matter worse as McGrath’s wife was suffering from cancer during that period. Distraught McGrath failed to hold himself and went to the Caribbean player and said, “If you f**king mention my wife again, I will f**king rip your f**king throat out.
