Consistent form with the bat for grade club St George during recent years has seen Brett van Deinsen emerge as a contender for a long-term role at the top of the New South Wales order. Tall and strongly built, the right hander made his first-class debut in the 1999-2000 season, and quickly showcased the powerful shotmaking through the off side; the good judgement; and the intense concentration, that are the features of his game. A junior player of some note, van Deinsen has been earmarked for greater things from early in his career, albeit that he did not take up an offer to be a part of the Australian Cricket Academy's 1998 intake, instead returning home after less than a week on account of feeling homesick. While he has yet to surpass a score of 29 at either first-class or domestic one-day level, his technique and attitude promise much for the future. His performances for the state's second eleven team in ACB Cup competition also continue to be impressive. (John Polack, August 2001)
