Brett Mulder now aged 35, started playing representative cricket with the Young Australian side, which played England in 1983.
From 1983-1986 he played regular cricket for Western Australia with the likes of current Australian coach Geoff Marsh, Michael Veletta, Graeme Wood, Bruce Reid and Tim Zoehrer. A 6 for 25 against Victoria at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 1986 being the only highlight in a disappointing period that lead to his dropping from the Western Australian side.
After 10 years absence Mulder came back against New South Wales in the season of 1996-97 and took an amazing 5 for 2 and 6 for 65.
Mulder again was disappointing in the 1998-99 season and was limited to only a one game for the Western Warriors. He did, however, feature strongly in the Perth "Smoke Free" league final. Mulder and team mate Matt Garnaut put together a record breaking 177 run, 10th wicket partnership in Bayswater-Morley's second innings. Mulder and Garnaut, leading Bayswater Morley to a 1-wicket victory was undoubtedly Mulder's greatest highlight of that season. (Patrick Dean, August 1999)

Pakistan have notched up some fine wins under Misbah-ul-Haq's leadership, but they haven't yet achieved consistent results outside the UAE
Going out to play cricket today would have been near enough to impossible. Even doing so next week in the nets and at the Gabba for the first Test will be difficult
