Commentator, Journalist

Burdened by expectations that he would be the next big leg-spinning thing in the early 1970s, Kerry O'Keeffe's Tests were spread over seven years, and he finished his career as one of the more disillusioned members of the World Series Cricket troupe. He enjoyed as much success, in the end, with his sound, orthodox batting, which was good enough for him to open at a pinch. A thoughtful character, he tried his hand at a number of occupations, from carting beer-barrels to futures trading, before becoming a journalist and media pundit.
