Profile

Scott Brant was such an unknown when he joined the Queensland squad as a 19-year-old that most of his team-mates didn't recognise him. A left-arm medium-paced swing bowler, Brant's career began quickly as he was catapulted from club to state level at a time when he was unable to deliver more than eight-over spells because of his age. However, his progress slowed dramatically after two seasons with Essex, and he spent a couple of years on the outer at Queensland after returning from England in 2004. The first-class absence ended in 2007-08 when he was picked three times and captured 13 victims. Another seven came in nine one-day games, when he was the state's most economical bowler, and it turned into a satisfying campaign. There were more disruptions last summer when he was diagnosed with a leg stress fracture and he returned late in the campaign to help Gold Coast win the first grade title.
