Gus Mackay played three internationals for Zimbabwe as a seam bowler and a lower-order batsman after returning to the country from England in a bid to secure a place in the side ahead of the 1999 World Cup. He left it too late to achieve that goal, but he did win a call-up to the one-day side which toured Australia and New Zealand in 2000-01. As a teenager he played for Zimbabwe Colts in England in 1984 and then Zimbabwe Schools. His first-class debut, in 1998-99, did not come until he was 31, although he did play for Mashonaland in the Logan Cup before it became a first-class competition. In 1986 he spent a year at Essex and was then sidelined by a serious ankle injury, before joining English Midlands sides Barnet Green and West Bromwich. He forged his credentials as an administrator as general manager of Mashonaland, while working as a banker, and in 2006 he was appointed as chief executive at Sussex. At the end of the 2008 season he moved to Surrey as managing director of cricket.
