Profile

Gary Brent was a steady, unpretentious wobbler of a seam bowler, possessed with tenacious accuracy, a useful inswinger and an excellent slower ball. His stop-start international career can be separated into two distinct phases. After making a nervous debut as a 20-year-old on the 1996-97 Pakistan tour, he spent seven years as a fringe player, performing steadily but never quite making the most of his opportunities. He was overlooked for the 2003 World Cup and then failed to make an impact in the NatWest Series in England. He did however make the squad for the 2003-04 tour to Australia. Brent then allied himself with the 15 rebel players whose dispute with the Zimbabwe board lead to their dismissal in 2004, and it seemed that this had brought his international career to an end.
