Mark Brendon Palmer (born 10 February 1967) is a former Australian cricketer who played a single List A match for Western Australia during the 1989–90 season. From Perth, Palmer played at state under-16 and under-19 level,[1] and played several matches as wicket-keeper for the Australian under-19 cricket team during both the 1985–86 and 1986–87 seasons.[2][3] He went on to attend the Western Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS), participating in its cricket program.[4] Having previously played for the state colts team, Palmer's sole match at senior state level came against Sri Lanka, during its 1989–90 tour of Australia.[5] The match, played at the end of Sri Lanka's tour, was the first of a two-part series, with both matches held at the WACA Ground in early February 1990.[6] Western Australia trialled several new players in both matches, with Palmer one of four List A debutants in the match, alongside Brendan Julian, Chris Mack, and Darrin Ramshaw. Replacing usual state wicket-keeper Tim Zoehrer, Palmer was bowled by Rumesh Ratnayake for a golden duck, but took two catches in Sri Lanka's innings, off the bowling of Peter Capes and Steve Russell.[7] He did not play at state level again.[8]
