McGrath Breaks Kiwis

n BRISBANE, Australia -- Fast bowler Glenn McGrath finally broke New Zealand's resistance with a five-wicket burst that swept Australia to a crushing 186-run victory Tuesday in the first cricket test.


McGrath shrugged off the handicap of a slight groin injury to tear through the top order with four wickets in the space of 22 balls before lunch on the fifth and final day at the Gabba.


Chasing a daunting, and ultimately distant, victory target of 319, the New Zealanders eventually succumbed for 132 in their second innings with one session still to play.
