Former Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath has said that he is ready to act as a mentor to help navigate the country's new generation of pacemen.

McGrath also said that he is impressed by the bowling attack of the national Test team.

"I think they're getting it right. They're hitting the right areas and keeping the pressure on the batsmen. If you look at the Test in Hobart, well, we missed a couple of catches that could've made a difference to the result, but that's the way it goes," McGrath told The Sun-Herald.

"The positive out of that is it shows the bowlers are creating opportunities, and there's not much more they can do than that. There was a lot of talk at the time they were bowling a little bit short in the first innings, and maybe that was so, but it all comes with experience."

"You have to remember these guys have only played their first few Test matches and they're finding their feet," he added.
