Congratulations Matthew Wade

The last VFA/VFL player to represent Australia in international cricket...

It got me wondering who the would be the player before him to achieve the same feat?

Michael Dimattina played state cricket and in the VFA, although he did it in reverse I think, heading to Prahan once his cricket days were over. I think he may have briefly played NBL for the Melbourne Tigers too.

No mention of it on his Wikipedia page, digs, only that he played for the TAC Cup team. Ironic that his father was the driver for Tasmania to pull out of the VFL, not a great move in hindsight.

Could it be that I'm WRONG Wal ??

Ill check my records.

Wikipedia isn't 100% accurate, digs. Only as accurate as the info that people put on there.
