Angus Alexander McLachlan (born 11 November 1944) is an Australian pastoralist and former first-class cricketer.


Cricket career

Like his elder brother Ian before him, McLachlan was educated at St. Peter's College, Adelaide, and Jesus College at the University of Cambridge.

He made his first-class cricket debut for Cambridge University in his freshman year, 1964, taking 4 for 41 with "excellent leg-spin bowling" against Northamptonshire. Two games later he took 4 for 36 and 1 for 36 in an innings victory over Combined Services. He kept his place in the team for the rest of the season, playing in the annual match against Oxford University at Lord's. He finished the season with 18 wickets at 33.55.

Although his bowling "did not come up to expectations" and was "often expensive" in 1965, he played most of Cambridge's matches and once again appeared against Oxford at Lord's. His best figures were 4 for 101 against Yorkshire. He finished 1965 with 14 wickets at 42.42. In 1966 the captain, Deryck Murray, refused to allow players to play at all if they did not make themselves available for the whole season, and having devoted himself to his studies during the early weeks of the season, McLachlan was not selected for any matches.

Pastoral career

In 1971, at the age of 26, McLachlan took charge of the family sheep station, Rosebank, in the Mount Pleasant area of the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. He also owned the Victorian sheep station Liewah, near Swan Hill, until 2008.

Rosebank is a prominent Merino stud.
