He started receiving training for cricket under the vigilant eyes of Steve. Both of them were selected in the New South Wales Team but unfortunately only Steve was able to make it through to the Australian Cricket Team while Mark was ignored. This was a great led down for him but he didn’t lose hope and work harder and harder each passing day. He had the most productive period after 1987 in his career as he started piling up runs then.  He was awarded the Sheffield Shield Cricketer of the year and continuously performed consistently for Essex.

World Championship Series

This award resulted in his call for World Championship Series as a player of the Australian Team in 1988. In 1990, he acted as a replacement for his brother and scored an impeccable score of 138 in his debut performance. Though it was a bitter-sweet moment, but still he managed to do a commendable job.  It was a roller coaster ride for him, he had seen great heights when in Port Elizabeth, he played a classic innings of 116 which was made in five hours against South Africa which was appreciated by all but later on he had seen great falls too when he couldn’t make it to both Australia’s Test and One Day International (ODI) teams. He was very agitated and dismayed by this decision of dropping him in these matches, but he didn’t lose hope.  Ultimately he was again selected for both the teams.

Both Mark and Steve had their moment of glory in 1990 when they made the world record in First class cricket for scoring 464 runs and emerged as the highest fifth wicket partnership in which twin brothers scored a double century each. What a meritorious and exemplary performance it was! They were truly blessed with the talent of playing cricket.
