Andrew Zesers' career was brief and dogged by persistent shoulder problems which caused him to retire aged just 23. It all looked so promising when he became the youngest Australian to take 100 first-class wickets with his slow-medium bowling - he made his debut for South Australia aged 17. He was a member of the Australian side which won the 1987 World Cup - he played both his ODIs in that series - but within two season he was finished. He subsequently became a coach and community cricket manager at South Australia.
