Schultz formed a fearsome proposition for opposition batsmen during his brief career

Traditionally, mostly pleasant weather, as well as the hard nature of pitches, have prevented South Africa from experiencing any shortage of world-class pacers at any point in time. As such, competition for slots have usually been intense.

When they emerged from sporting isolation in the early 1990s, the Proteas unleashed two intimidating fast bowlers against unsuspecting opposition batsmen. While Allan Donald went on to have a glorious career, Brett Schultz's was unfortunately cut short by persistent knee injuries. The left-arm speedster's ability to take the pitch out of the equation presented a hostile threat on diverse conditions.

Schultz's nine Test appearances were spread between 1992 and 1997. His ODI career lasted all of one match. Multiple knee surgeries and the emergence of the more accurate Shaun Pollock curtailed what could have otherwise been a riveting pursuit. He subsequently shifted attention to the lucrative world of finance.
