A right-arm fast-medium bowler, Saker made his first class debut in the 1994-95 season. He spent six years with the Bushrangers before accepting an offer to join the Tasmanian side at the start of the 2000-01 season. As a veteran in a fairly young side he was named as their Player of the Year for 2001-02. Saker was also a handy batsman, making four first class half centuries, even opening the batting at times for the Bushrangers at limited-overs level. He retired in 2002-03 with 247 wickets to his name at 30.10.
In 2004 he became an assistant coach at Victoria under Greg Shipperd.
