In Hurst's first test he captured the wicket of the Kiwis’ star bat Glenn Turner, taking 1–56 and 0–17. However he wasn't selected to make the trip across the Tasman for the return series a few weeks later, despite a request from Australian skipper Ian Chappell that he do so. Chappell considered Hurst the fastest bowler in the country with Dennis Lillee sidelined by a severe back injury. Hurst took 38 first class wickets in 1973–74 at 30.57.

Hurst’s next flirtation with international representation came in early 1976 when he toured South Africa with Richie Benaud’s International Wanderers team. Opening with Dennis Lillee, Hurst lost nothing by comparison as far as pace was concerned. He took 8 first class wickets at 19.50.


Hurst took 4–93 and 0–17 in the first test. The second brought him 3–70 and 1–43. He took 1–24 and 1–30 in the third. In the fourth he took 5–28 and 0–43. In the fifth his figures were 3–65 and 4–97. He took 2–7 for Australia in a one-day game, helping in a rare Australian victory that summer.

Hurst played two tests against Pakistan. In the first he took 3–55 and 3–115, but an Australian batting collapse saw them lose the game. In the second test he took 4–61 and 5–94.


In 2004, Hurst was appointed as an ICC Test match referee and made his debut in the position during a match between Bangladesh and New Zealand at Dhaka.


He played again briefly for Victoria in 1980-81 but took no wickets.


Hurst was selected to go England for the second World Cup in 1979. He took 5–21 in a game against Canada.

Hurst was also selected on the 1979 tour of India. After going wicketless in two Tests – 0–51 and 0–93 – Hurst was forced to return home due to a serious back injury.


He kept his place in the second test but fell injured and was replaced by Sam Gannon. When Hurst recovered he was unable to force his way back into the side for the rest of the series, or on the 1978 tour of the West Indies. He took 41 first class wickets over 1977–78 at 27.24, including 8–84 against Queensland.

Hurst did play in the entire Ashes series during the summer of 1978–79. In six Tests, he grabbed 25 wickets and formed an opening partnership with debutant Rodney Hogg that rivalled Lillee-Thomson for potency. Even though Australia lost 5–1, the England players were full of praise for Hurst, whose sustained pace and stamina impressed those who had previously believed him to be physically suspect.

Hurst was an athletic man in the outfield who bowled with an elaborate, "winding" delivery stride that generated real pace. He was a terrible batsman, scoring 10 ducks in 20 Test innings. In the 1978–79 Ashes series, he set a record by scoring two pairs. The only truly controversial incident of his career happened in the 1979 Perth test when Alan Hurst ran out Pakistan’s number eleven batsman Sikander Bakht at the bowler's end as Bakht was backing up too far – the fourth such instance in Test cricket. Later in the day, Australian batsman Andrew Hilditch was given out after an appeal for handled the ball and became the only non-striker to have suffered that decision. Hilditch picked up a wayward throw that had dribbled onto the pitch and handed the ball back to Sarfraz Nawaz who appealed and the umpire had to give him out. This incident was in retaliation for Hurst’s actions. The brief series was one of the most bad-tempered in history, caused in part by Pakistan’s decision to play their WSC-contracted men.


After knocking back a contract with the rebel organisation, Hurst was selected for the first test of the 1977–78 series against India. He took 0–31 and 2–50; he also scored 26 in the second innings, taking part in a 50-run last-wicket partnership with Jeff Thomson which proved crucial for Australia's victory.


In 1976–77 Hurst took 12 wickets at 18, missing some games in November due to a side strain. He was selected on the 1977 tour of New Zealand but did not perform particularly well, taking only three first class wickets at an average of 72.66. One innings his bowling was called "gloomily unpenetrative." He was overlooked for selection on the 1977 Ashes; the fast bowlers who went were Thomson, Walker, Len Pascoe, Mick Malone and Geoff Dymock.


Hurst took 21 wickets on the tour at 31.38 but did not play a test. He was kept on in the squad to play the 1975 World Cup.

He had a strong season in 1975–76, taking 39 wickets at 23.38, including a spell of 4–13 in nine overs for Victoria against the touring West Indies. However he was unable to force his way into the test side past Lillee, Thomson, Max Walker and Gary Gilmour.


Hurst was unable to play the first few games of 1974–75 due to his back injury. The rise of Jeff Thomson during the Ashes series later in 1974 pushed Hurst further down the pecking order in the hunt for a baggy green cap. He took 29 wickets at 20.13 over the summer and was picked on the 1975 tour of England.


Hurst made his first class debut in 1972–73 taking 18 wickets at 40.61.
