The history of cricket is full of great players, great teams, great matches, great series and great seasons and those stories have been told countless times. But what about the tales of players who did not scale the heights of the legends of the game, players who scaled their own personal Everest by being picked for Test cricket, only to never be selected again? That is the subject of One Test Wonders, a cricketing podcast that features episodes with players who played just one Test.

In this episode we speak with Ireland wicketkeeper-batsman Niall O’Brien - and it's an episode with a difference. All the other players we’ve spoken with were hopeful of long Test careers when they made their debuts but Niall is a bit different. A left-hander who played county cricket with Kent, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire for well over a d…
 
This episode sees us speaking with opening batsman Andy Lloyd. Andy had an excellent first-class career, latterly as Warwickshire captain, and scored more than 17,000 first-class runs, but perhaps he's best known for his one Test appearance, against the mighty West Indies side of 1984, and how it ended prematurely for him because of a horrendous in…
 
In this episode we catch up with former Essex and Hampshire all-rounder John Stephenson. John’s career included over 22,000 runs and more than 600 wickets in professional cricket and he captained Hampshire for two seasons in 1996 and 1997. But here we’re concerned with his Test appearance, which came against the mighty Australia side of 1989, the o…
 
This time we hear from former Gloucestershire, Surrey and Sussex seam bowler Jon Lewis, a player who took more than 1300 wickets in his professional career and someone who enjoyed enormous success in county cricket in limited-overs cricket. Jon’s solitary Test match came against Sri Lanka at Trent Bridge in 2006, and it was the culmination of being…
 
In this episode we speak with fast bowler Tony Pigott. Tony had a first-class career that spanned three decades, collecting 672 first-class wickets for Sussex, Surrey and New Zealand side Wellington along the way, and he made his Test appearance as a late call-up in what became a notorious innings loss in New Zealand, at Christchurch in February 19…
 
In this episode we chat with opening batsman Alan Butcher. Alan had a decorated first-class career, with more than 22,000 runs for Surrey and Glamorgan, before going on to a successful coaching career, including with Zimbabwe. He’s also the father of former England batsman Mark and Gary, who, like his dad, played for both Glamorgan and Surrey. Alan…
 
If you think about the 1981 Ashes series, what comes to your mind? Ian Botham, of course; Bob Willis, almost certainly; Mike Brearley, perhaps. But Paul Parker? Probably not. All the same, Paul, an attacking batsman and a thrilling fielder for Sussex and latterly Durham, a player good enough to score over 19,000 first-class runs and take part in tw…
 
Brian Murgatroyd looks ahead to the series, in which he chats with players who played just one Test match. The players chat about how their Test appearances came about, their recollections of the matches themselves and the aftermath of never getting another chance. Brian Murgatroyd said: “So much of the game is about high achievement and success an…
