Valente rose through the ranks by performing in grade cricket, and was scouted for the U-19 World Cup in 2014 after impressive performances in A-grade cricket. He also earned himself a sporting scholarship from Hampshire where he spent time training and getting accustomed to seaming conditions and the Dukes ball in England.
On account of consistent performances in Youth cricket, he was handed his first-class debut in a Sheffield Shield match against Victoria. He had a decent outing, taking 2 wickets in each innings and conceding 190 runs. He earned a second rookie contract for the 2016/17 season and scored a face-saving century for his Matador team to reinforce his all-round credentials. He had nothing to prove with his bowling, as he ended up as the highest wicket-taker in the Matador Cup with 15 wickets. He performed in a tour game against Pakistan as well, taking 4/36 and finally making the cut to shoot into the limelight.
In 2016, the Perth Scorchers signed him as a replacement for Jason Behrendorff for the Big Bash League, and he was finally awarded a full contract for 2017/18 by South Australia. His performances were commendable and he was subsequently signed by the Brisbane Heat for the 2017/18 season as a replacement for all-rounder Jack Wildermuth. The Heat will be hoping his powerful biffing in the late overs is useful. However, his bowling will be crucial, as that is his primary role. The paradigm shift to T20 bowling definitely isn't easy, and the Brisbane Heat would benefit from a talent like Valente. Given that his gifts are nurtured and directed appropriately, he possesses the potential to become the most valuable player for the Heat.
