Glenn McGrath didn't play too long to break world records, but he was one of the prime reasons to keep Australian test team on top of World though his mighty accurate medium pace bowling..
On 8 March 1999, McGrath was on fire. Chasing 364 in 4th innings of that Port of Spain test match, West Indies were bowled out for only 51 runs, their lowest total in test cricket ever. McGrath removed 6 wickets from only 10 overs for 28 runs to bring home team's downfall in that 1st test of that 1999 series. McGrath took 11 wickets in total in that test match and was awarded man of the match.
76 is Australia's lowest test match total against West Indies, made at WACA ground in Perth. Batting first, visitors had posted healthy 416 to which home team replied with only 76 allout, against a lethal spell of 9.2 overs for 6 wickets by Michael Holding. Bowling first change, Holding got the wickets of Allan Border, Kim Hughes, Graham Yallop, Wayne Philips, Rodney Hogg and Carl Reckemann.
Following on, Australia were bowled out for 228 runs (Holding got 1 more wicket) and West Indies won the game by their biggest margin against Australia = an innings + 112 runs.
