Tony Dodemaide's was a fairly unspectacular career, but he certainly had his moments. He took a five-for on ODI debut, against Sri Lanka in Perth in 1987-88, and he made 50 (batting at No. 9) and took 6 for 58 on his Test debut, against New Zealand in Melbourne the same winter. But those were the only instances of Dodemaide taking five wickets or reaching 50 in his 10 Tests and 24 ODIs. Uniquely, he played his first four Tests against four different countries: New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. He also had three seasons at Sussex, before becoming the MCC's Head of Cricket at Lord's. In April 2004 he returned to Australia as CEO of Western Australia and three years later he headed home to Melbourne to become the chief executive of Cricket Victoria.
