Stuart Law made 54 not out in his only Test innings, against Sri Lanka in Perth in 1995-96. The unfortunate Law never won another cap, while Australia's other debutant in that match, who scored 96, went on to play 168 Tests - Ricky Ponting.
My first thought was that Australia's Aaron Finch might be the only batsman with such a lopsided arrangement. He made 172 - the highest score in all T20Is - against Zimbabwe in Harare in July 2018, 153 not out in a one-day international against Pakistan in Sharjah in March 2019, and 62 on his Test debut, against Pakistan in Dubai in 2018-19.
The man with this brief but busy international career was the tall Indian fast bowler Abey Kuruvilla, who played 35 separate international matches in 1997, ten of them Tests, starting on March 6 and finishing on December 14. He took 50 wickets in all, 25 in each format. However, the rise of Ajit Agarkar meant Kuruvilla was jettisoned, never to return.

You're probably right that figures from bilateral series are not widely known. It was therefore a slight surprise to me to discover that the leading scorer in England-Australia one-day internationals is none other than Eoin Morgan, who had 1887 runs after the first match of the current series. He's well clear of Ricky Ponting (1598) and Michael Clarke (1430), the leading Australians. Six others, including Morgan's current opposite number, Aaron Finch (1269), have scored more than 1000 runs in ODIs between England and Australia. Finch leads the way for centuries (seven), while Morgan has hit the most sixes (48, well clear of Shane Watson with 27).
This was the legendary Barbadian speedster Wes Hall, one of the stars of the 1960-61 Australia-West Indies series that started with the historic tied Test in Brisbane, in which he bowled the nerve-shredding final over. Hall, who ended up with 192 wickets in 48 Tests, returned to Queensland the following season, taking 43 wickets, and added 33 in 1962-63.
