List of international cricket five-wicket hauls by Craig McDermott

Adelaide Oval
McDermott took three five-wicket hauls at the Adelaide Oval, including two in a ten-wicket-match against India in 1994.

In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five–for" or "fifer")[1] refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement,[2] and as of August 2015 only 43 bowlers have taken 15 or more five-wicket hauls at the international level.[3] Craig John McDermott is a former Australian cricketer who, according to the sports journalist Greg Baum, was "Australia's premier strike bowler in the early 1990s".[4] A right-arm fast bowler, he played 71 Test matches and 138 ODIs in his career, taking 291 and 203 wickets respectively.[4] He took fourteen five-wicket hauls in Test cricket, including two in a single ten-wicket match, and one in the ODI format.[5]

McDermott made his Test match debut for Australia against the West Indies at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in December 1984, with Richie Richardson being his first Test victim.[6] His first Test five-wicket haul came at Lord's in the second Test of the 1985 Ashes series in June of that year, taking 6 wickets for 70 runs in a 4-wicket victory for Australia.[7] McDermott's best bowling analysis in Test cricket is 8 for 97 against England in the fifth Test of the 1990–91 Ashes series.[4] He was most successful against England, taking eight of his fourteen five-wicket hauls against them, including four during the 1994–95 Ashes in which he was named player of the series.[5]

McDermott's ODI debut came against the West Indies at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in January 1985.[4] He did not bat and although he took the wicket of Viv Richards, Australia lost the game by seven wickets.[8] McDermott played 138 ODIs, and took a solitary five-wicket haul against Pakistan in November 1987, in the Cricket World Cup semi-final.[9] His figures of 5 for 44, and an Australian victory by 18 runs, saw him awarded man of the match as Australia progressed to the final.[9]
