Clark set to wreak more havoc in Ashes series with his McGrath-like qualities

Hampshire (UK), Aug.9 (ANI): Hampshire's director for cricket operations Tim Tremlett is of the view that Australian fast bowler Stuart Clark is set to wreak more havoc in the Ashes series with his Glenn McGrath-like qualities.

Tremlett believes that Clark possesses the nagging accuracy and probing line and length to leave the required devastating impact.

Clark was surprisingly left out of Australia's side for the first three Ashes Tests, but on his comeback after nine months out, he grabbed 3-18 on Friday to rock England out for just 102.

Clark took his wickets tally to 29 against England at an amazing average of just 15, following his 26-wicket haul when Australia won 5-0 in 2006-07.

"Stuart is a very easy-going type of person, but as soon as he walks on the field and gets a ball in his hand, he is a steely competitor," said Tremlett.

"He is as competitive a bowler as you can hope to meet and hates to give runs away. Look at his run rate on Friday - only 18 runs off his 10 overs.

"That first spell was really damaging. I'd be surprised if he doesn't go on to have more of an impact in this game and then at The Oval," the Sunday Express quoted Tremlett, as saying. (ANI)
