Melbourne:

Fast-bowling great Glenn McGrath has passed on his assessment of the upcoming Ashes and England players to greenhorn Australian pacers in a bid to help them get an edge in the series beginning next week.

McGrath, who boasts of an outstanding record against England with 157 wickets at an average of 20.92, interacted with Aussie fast bowlers at a meeting in Worcester and gave them tips for the Ashes.

"I was just passing through town and Truck (Australian bowling coach Troy Cooley) said, 'Do you want to just come along and say something to the boys?'" McGrath said. "We had a bowlers' meeting and I just sat in there and offered my USD 5 worth. I passed on some of my thoughts about the series and about some of the England players," he was quoted as saying by the 'Herald Sun'.

McGrath, who is the highest wicket-taker among pacers with 563 Test scalps, however, said he doesn't have intention to make a comeback.

"It's good to catch up with the boys and if I can help out in some small way then happy days. It's good value to be in the team atmosphere again -- but I don't want to play again."
