Colin Dettmer opened the batting for Boland and Western Transvaal at the domestic level. He averaged just under 30 in the longer format and closer to 35 in the shorter version, making him a handy addition at the top of the order, even if his part-time offspin was largely underutilised. He managed to score solitary tons in both versions of the game. Dettmer passed away on January 12, 2010 in Pretoria, at the age of 51.
