Andrew Barry McDonald (born 15 June 1981 in Wodonga, Victoria) is an Australian Test cricketer who plays for the Victorian Bushrangers, and who made his Test debut in Sydney on 3 January 2009, against South Africa. McDonald also represented Australia at under 19 level and has played for the Prime Minister's XI. He is an allrounder who bats right-handed and is a right-arm medium-fast bowler.
McDonald started his first class career with 32 wickets in his first ten games in 2003–04. His best spell was 6 for 67 against Western Australia. He was struggling however with the bat and despite batting at 4 at the start of the summer he would end it at number 8 in the batting order. Finger surgery the following season limited his appearances. In 2005–06 he played just four matches and only managed 83 runs and four wickets. Injury free, McDonald came into his own in the 2006–07 season. In the Pura Cup he boasted a batting average of over a hundred when he brought up his 500th run. He finished the season as only the 4th player in Sheffield Shield/Pura Cup history to reach the double of 750 runs and 25 wickets in a season.
He was rewarded for his strong domestic form by being named in the Australian 30-man preliminary squad for the 2007 World Cup. He was also named in the Australian preliminary squads for the 2007 ICC World Twenty20 and a 7 match ODI series tour of India.
