Profile

A dramatic 2010 off-season ended in Stephen O'Keefe fielding for the Test team at Lord's and playing a Twenty20 international. O'Keefe, a left-arm orthodox spinner, had only played a handful of games for his state before he was picked for Australia A, benefiting from injuries to Jon Holland and Jason Krejza. After taking 7 for 35 and scoring 61 and 47 in a first-class affair against Sri Lanka A, he was soon flying to England to join the national team thanks to Nathan Hauritz's foot injury. He was surprised to play in the Twenty20 but made the most of the opportunity, finishing with 3 for 29 against Pakistan, and stayed with the squad for the Tests.
