Cuan McCarthy got his first call up to the national side at the age of 19. Opening the bowling for South Africa in his 15 Tests between 1948 and 1951, he produced his best figures of 12-2-43-6 in his debut Test against the touring English team on his home ground at Kingsmead. Never one to trouble the scorers with his bat, only accumulating 28 runs in 24 visits to the crease and registering a top score of five, his claim to fame was his fast right-arm deliveries that brought him 36 Test wickets at an economy rate of 2.58.
