Mott played for the Victorian Bushrangers and Queensland Bulls. He was part of the Australian Cricket Academy in Adelaide in 1995. A left-handed batsman, he made his first-class debut in 1994-95, playing for Queensland. He was in and out of the side but made a crucial 86 in Queensland's 1996-97 Sheffield Shield Final. He relocated to Victoria for the 1998-99 season and performed well, cementing his spot in the upper order. His first season included centuries against New South Wales and Western Australia. He made 841 first-class runs the following summer to help Victoria reach the final for the first time in nine years. A highlight of his career with Victoria was a 223 run opening partnership with Jason Arnberger. He finished his 66-game career in 2004 with 3723 runs at 33.84 with 7 hundreds.
