Mick Malone's breakthrough into Test cricket came on the eve of his joining World Series Cricket and so he played just the once for Australia at the end of their miserable 1977 England tour. At the Oval he did well, taking 5 for 63 and scoring 46. A medium-fast seamer with a high action and boundless energy, WSC did him no favours and he was never more than a peripheral player. He had one season with Lancashire in 1979, and although he toured Pakistan in 1979-80 he made little impression. He was also a professional Rules football player.
