Wisden Overview
A lively left-arm seamer from Perth, Chris Matthews performed creditably on his debut against England at Brisbane in 1986-87 but he was dropped after the next Test as the Australian selectors, shocked by the unexpected competence of England's batting line-up, turned first to spin (Peter Sleep) and then raw pace (Craig McDermott). He returned for the first Test against the West Indies in 1988-89, but his wicketless contribution to a nine-wicket, three-day defeat was his last at the highest level. He played one season for Lancashire in 1988, making three first-class appearances, and left Western Australia at the end of the 1990-91 season, seeing out his career with Tasmania.
