Matthew Garnaut played for local club Scarborough for 2 seasons before making his debut for Western Australia against South Australia in late November in the season of 1996-97. Garnaut made an inauspicious entrance to state cricket with 1 for 59 from 22 overs, and a golden duck but struck well in the South Australian 2nd innings with 4 for 81 from 27 overs which helped Western Australia win a very close game against the Redbacks.
During season 1998-99 Matthew Garnaut represented local club side Bayswater-Morley who made it through to the finals of the Smoke Free League and came up against Midland-Guildford. In that game suffering from a torn stomach muscle he rescued his team with a brilliant 127 not out in an inspiring 177 run 10th wicket partnership with team mate Brett Mulder which won Bayswater Morley the game and the competition.

India's wretched run away from home began at Lord's in 2011. A young team full of self-belief may have brought it to an end with their victory at the same venue three years later
