Richard Chee Quee, who was the first player of Chinese origin to play first-class cricket in Australia, was a powerful top or middle-order batsman who dominated Sydney grade cricket for more than a decade (at Randwick) but despite showing great promise, never quite made his mark in the first-class game. He scored a hundred against the West Indies in 1995-96 and two years earlier smashed 131 in the Mercantile Cup final, but that form was spasmodic. Although he did not play for NSW after 1997-98, he continued to score heavily for Randwick, and when he retired at the end of the 2005-06 campaign, he had made almost 11,000 runs for them, and only six other batsmen had ever made more in Sydney grade cricket.
Also: the fastest Indian to 50 wickets, and Yasir Shah's unwanted "double-hundred"
