Kelly Seymour was an offspinner who failed to make any impression in his seven Tests which were spread over six years. It had all started so promisingly when, playing for SA Universities against the touring New Zealanders in 1961-62 he took 7 for 80 in the first innings and 5 for 72 in the second. He is a doctor by profession.
