McGrath hints at IPL retirement

Glenn McGrath's cricket career could be over after the legendary fast bowler expressed disappointment over his continued ommission from the Delhi Daredevils line-up.

The 39-year-old was an ever-present in the Delhi line-up last year when he performed brilliantly, but seemed unlikely to get a game in this year's tournament having warmed the bench in every match.

While he is contracted to play one more season for Delhi, McGrath says it now seems unlikely that he will take part in the 2010 season, which would surely have been the last competitive cricket he plays.

"I am contracted for another year with Delhi, but that is a long way away," he wrote in his column for the Hindustan Times. "Right now, I would not bet on myself returning."

McGrath has been a victim of the rule stating that teams can field no more than four non-Indian players, as well as the good form of Victorian left-armer Dirk Nannes who has played almost every game for the Daredevils.
