McGrath predicts whitewash of India

GLENN McGrath says Australia are a team on the rise and he's predicting a four-nil Test series whitewash over India.

Ahead of the second Test starting at the SCG on Tuesday, McGrath is also tipping that Sachin Tendulkar will remain stranded on 99 international centuries for the rest of the summer at least.

Fast bowling great McGrath is renowned for tipping Australia to achieve series clean-sweeps, with mixed success.

In the 2006-07 Ashes down under, McGrath correctly predicted a five-nil thumping for Australia, but in last year's series against England he made the same confident statement and was horribly wrong.
