After being rejected from Victoria’s senior team, Agar moved to Western Australia for the 2012–13 season. There, the Western Australian Cricket Association offered him a contract (WACA). In a Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales in January 2013, he took over as the team’s spinner for the injured Michael Beer, making his first-class debut for Western Australia. He scored 53 runs in Western Australia’s second innings in his second Shield match early the following month, teaming up with Michael Hogan (43*) for a state Sheffield Shield record 94 runs for the tenth wicket.

Agar made his List A debut for Western Australia in the Ryobi One-Day Cup for limited overs during the end of January. He took five wickets in his two games, with three of them falling to Queensland (3/51). Agar made his Sheffield Shield debut in January 2013. The following month, he received a call-up for Australia’s 2012–13 tour of India, where he took part in one game. Agar went on a tour with Australia A in the middle of 2013, doing admirably in England and Ireland under English conditions. He wasn’t initially selected for the touring squad, but in the 2013 Ashes series, he played in his first Test for Australia.

When Australia’s first innings was declared with the score at 117/9, Agar broke numerous Test records, including the highest score by a number-11 batsman and the largest partnership for the tenth wicket. Agar scored 98 runs while batting twelfth, shattering numerous records for Australia (with Phillip Hughes – since broken). He was let go from the team after the second Test of the series because of his subpar bowling.

Agar was an afterthought when it came to the Australian selection for the India trip in 2012–2013. While there, he took part in just one game, recording a 3/107 versus India A.

He finished the season with 19 wickets from five Sheffield Shield matches, including a five-wicket haul (5/65) against South Australia in early March. Agar and Michael Hogan scored 68 runs when the last wicket fell in the same match, giving Western Australia a one-wicket victory. He added 71 unbroken runs to Western Australia’s 8/351 fourth innings total, which enabled them defeat Tasmania by two wickets. He finished the season third on the club in batting averages with 229 runs at an average of 32.71.

Agar made his Twenty20 debut for the Perth Scorchers in the 2013 Champions League Twenty20 in India. He played in three games in the competition but mostly as an opening batsman and only bowled 4.2 overs (from which he conceded 51 runs without taking a wicket). Against the Mumbai Indians, he had his highest Twenty20 game total with 35 strikes from 40 balls. March 2015 Agar played in just one game during the 2013–14 Big Bash League season, but eight of the Scorchers’ ten games the following year.

With eight wickets at an average of 24.25, he finished fourth for the Scorchers and thirteenth overall, trailing only Jason Behrendorff, Yasir Arafat, and Andrew Tye. Only two spinners—Adam Zampa (9) and Cameron Boyce (10)—took more wickets during the competition. When the 2014–15 Sheffield Shield season began following the Big Bash League, Agar was named player of the match against South Australia. He took the first ten-wicket haul (5/133 and 5/81) and also scored 64 runs in Western Australia’s first innings. By collecting 4/22 in the second innings of the following game against them, he helped bowl New South Wales out for 97.

In June 2013, Agar was selected to travel with Australia A on a tour of England,

Scotland, and Ireland. He and Fawad Ahmed, a Pakistani immigrant who was granted Australian citizenship in early July 2013, were widely believed to be competing for the final slot in Australia’s side for the 2013 Ashes series in England. One of the two spinners was given a spot in the team as Nathan Lyon’s backup as a result of their performances in the months before to the trip. Agar was chosen to replace Lyon in the starting lineup for the first Test of the series, played at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, as a result of his success for Australia A. Lyon was not chosen due to injury.

He became the twelfth-youngest Australian to play in a Test match since Archie Jackson when he made his Test debut in the Ashes at the age of 19 years and 269 days (during the 1928–1929 series).

The first person to ever hit a half-century as the number eleven batsman on debut, the greatest score by a number eleven batsman, and the highest partnership (163 runs) for the tenth wicket with Phillip Hughes were just a few of the Test records he broke on his first outing. In Australia’s first innings, he batted eleventh and scored 98 runs from 101 balls.

Agar made a name for himself in the List A squad in 2015 instead of receiving a spot on The Ashes team. He would make his debut in restricted overs following the Ashes series and also participated in his first One Day International match on September 8, 2015, playing against England. He participated in his nation’s inaugural Twenty20 match against South Africa on March 6, 2016.

For the Australian test team’s 2017 tour of Bangladesh, Agar was summoned back. He took a total of 5 wickets in the first test match and scored an incredible 41 runs for Australia in the first innings. Despite his best efforts, Bangladesh defeated Australia in the inaugural Test match of cricket.

In April 2018, Cricket Australia awarded him a national contract for the 2018–19 season,

Agar became the second bowler for Australia and the 13th overall to record a hat-trick when he got three wickets against South Africa in the first T20I match on February 21, 2020. His final match statistics were 5/24 from four overs, which was a T20I match record for a five-wicket haul. In April 2020, Agar signed a central contract with Cricket Australia in front of the 2020–21 season.

On July 16, 2020, Agar was chosen for a preliminary team of 26 players and began training in anticipation of a likely trip to England following the COVID-19 epidemic.
On August 14, 2020, Cricket Australia announced that the matches will go ahead and that Agar would be accompanying the team.
