Profile

At the age of 35, Bryce McGain went from IT worker to professional cricketer and he did it with such success that within a year he was part of Australia's Test squad to tour India. The call-up came as Australia searched the country for their next long-term spinner and McGain's promising effort during Australia A's rain-affected trip to India helped his cause. He embarked on the trip as the No. 1 spinner and was almost certain to make his debut but was forced home due to an unusual injury to the tendons in his right armpit. Surgery was required but despite his advanced age, McGain did not give up on his Test dream. When he returned to state action in January 2009, he managed a timely five-wicket Sheffield Shield haul that earned him a place on the Test tour of South Africa. However, when his opportunity finally came at Cape Town, where at 36 he became Australia's oldest Test debutant since Bob Holland, McGain struggled to find the right length and was treated harshly to finish with match figures of 0 for 149, and his hopes of further international action had faded.
