Disappointed at not being given a match in the on-going Indian Premier League [ Images ], legendary Australian pacer Glenn McGrath [ Images ] hinted at terminating his contract with Delhi Daredevils [ Images ] and said he may not return for the next season of the Twenty20 [ Images ] tournament.
McGrath, who bid adieu to international cricket after the 2007 World Cup, was a regular in the Daredevils' playing eleven in the inaugural IPL; with his immaculate line and length he was one of the best bowlers last season.
But, surprisingly, the 39-year-old fast bowler was a bench warmer this season, courtesy Victoria pacer Dirk Nannes's [ Images ] outstanding performance coupled with Ashish Nehra [ Images ], Pradeep Sangwan and Aavishkar Salvi's consistent showing.
"It has been hard to be a part of the bench, and I was hoping for a game during the league stage," he wrote in a newspaper column.
"I have asked a couple of people about why I was not being played, and I get the sense that they were worried about my fitness. I feel fitter than I did last year, but I guess I will not get a chance to prove that now.
"I am contracted for another year with Delhi, but that is a long way away. Right now, I would not bet on myself returning," added McGrarth, who was signed by Delhi for US $350,000 for three years.
