Profile

A top-order batsman for Northerns, van Jaarsveld knocked long and hard on the South African selectors' door before eventually being given his chance against Bangladesh in 2002-03. His previous summer's first-class campaign - five centuries and 1268 runs at an average of 74.58 - simply could not be ignored. After a handful of Tests and one-dayers, however, he never really showed the skill, talent and temperament that made him one of the most respected batsmen on the South African domestic scene and, latterly, a Kent stalwart.
