Carseldine's breakthrough as a senior player came with a fleeting first-class appearance against Tasmania in 1998-99 and then with berths in the state's semi-final and final teams of the 1999-2000 Mercantile Mutual Cup campaign. He went on to play 24 first-class matches, including being part of the 2000-01 Pura Cup win, before he was floored by the injury. He was primarily a batsman, reaching a highest score of 124 not out, but he picked up eight wickets to average in the 30s with bat and ball.His body prevented him from achieving regular great things on the field, although he owns a century against New Zealand and two in the same match against India in 2003.
