Simon Patrick Mackin (born 1 September 1992) is an Australian cricketer who debuted for Western Australia during the 2013–14 season.

Mackin was born in Wyalkatchem, a small country town in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, and raised nearby in Tammin. A right-arm fast bowler who stands 2.02 metres (6 ft 8 in) tall,[1] he made his debut for the state under-23 side in 2010, aged 18,[2] after previous appearances for state under-15, under-17, and under-19 teams. At the conclusion of the 2012–13 season, following good form for Willetton at grade level, Mackin was named the WA Cricket Media Guild's Player of the Future. He subsequently received a rookie contract from the Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) for the 2013–14 season.[3]

In November 2013, Mackin played a match for a Cricket Australia Chairman's XI against the touring English team at Traeger Park, Alice Springs, after two other bowlers (Alister McDermott and Kane Richardson) withdrew.[4][5] He made his first-class debut shortly after, taking two wickets in a Sheffield Shield game against Queensland.[6] Mackin's height and bowling ability have led to him being compared to Jo Angel, who holds the record for the most first-class wickets taken for Western Australia.[1]

After taking 39 wickets in his first 13 first-class matches, he then took 23 in his next two, in the Sheffield Shield in 2016-17: 5 for 68 and 6 for 33 against Queensland,[7] and 7 for 81 and 5 for 78 against South Australia.[8] Western Australia won both matches.
