Profile

A specialist middle-order batsman, Martin van Jaarsveld is a player who possesses a sound technique and gutsy attitude. Coached by his father, he toured Sri Lanka in 1998-99 representing South Africa A. He then joined Northerns.

A prolific 2001-02 season with them saw him amass 1,268 runs at a batting average of 74.58 which paved the way for his selection in the ODI and Test team. He made his ODI debut against Bangladesh in 2002. He scored 3 half-centuries in Tests. A string of inconsistent performances kept him out of the side which forced him to retire from international cricket. He joined as a Kolpak player for Kent and performed consistently. van Jaarsveld was named the PCA player of the year in 2008.
