Profile

Brett Schultz, an aggressive left-handed paceman, suffered equally from injuries, the resultant lack of fitness, and lack of accuracy. When he did get his line and length right, however, batsmen were often done for pace. On his debut tour in 1993-94, on the slow pitches of Sri Lanka, Schultz showed that his pace was through the air and not so much off the pitch. This, together with the angle of delivery, presented major problems for both right- and left-handed batsmen and he ended with 20 wickets in the three-Test series. But injuries - especially to his knees which were operated on several times - took their toll and he managed only four Tests in the next four seasons and he drifted out of the game and into the financial world.
