Bradley Edward McNamara (born December 30, 1965 in Sydney, New South Wales) is an Australian cricketer who has played first-class cricket for New South Wales and also List A cricket once for the Middlesex Cricket Board versus Cumberland at Southgate in 1999.

First-class career

McNamara was for over a decade an all-rounder for the NSW in Australian domestic cricket. A pugnacious competitor, when without injuries, he was always amongst the first picked for The Blues, particularly in one-day teams. As a medium pace bowler, his strength was his ability to worry batsmen with a shrewd combination of accuracy and unorthodoxy. Off a relatively short run, he combined impeccable line and length with difficult to read "change-up" balls, swing and seam.

He extended his canny ways as "a bowler who bats". Though no strokemaker, his hard working and stubborn approach to batting made him a key member of many Blues tail-end partnerships. He still jointly holds the Blues First Class tenth wicket partnership record of an unbroken 138* with Phil Alley against Tasmania.


McNamara retired from interstate competition at the end of the 1999-2000 season.


* He was best man at Australian captain Steve Waugh's wedding.
* He is a guitarist and vocalist with Six & Out
