Tom Hogan, a capable slow left-armer, made his first-class debut aged 25 and within 18 months was playing for Australia in the inaugural Test against Sri Lanka, taking his Test-best 5 for 66 in the second innings. He made one unsuccessful appearance against Pakistan the following winter, but was selected for the West Indies tour where his series figures (8 wickets at 60.37) hid the excellent work he did bowling long spells on generally unresponsive wickets. Left out of the Australian side, he joined the rebel Australian side which toured South Africa in 1985-86, a move which effectively ended any chance of an international recall, where he played in two of the `Tests' with no success. He continued to play for Western Australia for another five seasons, ending his state career with 158 wickets from 56 appearances. In 2003 he became a selector for his old state.
