The Delhi Daredevils have added former Australian pacer Glenn McGrath to their roster for the Champions League and are awaiting approval from the tournament’s technical committee.

The Australian will serve as a replacement for Daniel Vettori who had to pullout from the Champions Trophy final on Monday due to a hamstring injury.

According to Delhi Daredevils’ Chief Operating Officer, Amrit Mathur, McGrath’s name has been sent for to the tournament’s technical committee for approval. “We have approached the committee for approval. McGrath’s name has been sent as a replacement for Vettori and the approval is in the process,” Mathur told the Hindustan Times.

Apart from Vettori, South Africa’s AB de Villiers and England’s Paul Collingwood have also withdrawn with injuries. McGrath will return to competitive cricket since the IPL semifinal of 2008.
