Profile

In an era when England have not exactly been blessed with spin bowling options, Gary Keedy can considering himself unlucky not to have had a crack in the Test team, especially after his performances in the last couple of seasons. In 2004 in finished as the highest wicket-taker amongst English-qualified spinners, with 72 wickets, and was ever present in the relegated Lancashire side and was often left with a huge workload on flat pitches. That followed the 2003 summer where he'd claimed 60 scalps.
