Australian player Steve O’Keefe retires from first-class cricket after not being offered a contract for next summer. 

Steve O’Keefe was disappointed after not having received a new contract from the New South Wales. Upon receiving the said news, the Australian player decided to retire from first-class cricket immediately. 

O’Keefe shared his sentiments with regards to the situation when he said, ‘I was disappointed when I was told that I wasn't getting a contract but I respect and accept the decision, so I have decided to retire from first-class cricket’. 

‘It's been such a privilege to play for my country and captain my state, but above everything else, I'm most proud to have played alongside some of the best blokes I've ever met. When I think about my time playing cricket, that's what I'll miss most’, he added.

O’Keefe is well-known to be one of Australia’s best finger spinners when it comes to domestic cricket. During his career, he had picked out a total of 301 wickets with an average of 24.66 during his 88-match FC career. 

Despite his retirement in first-class cricket, O’Keefe will continue to play for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League. To know more about this cricket league in Australia, visit Betwala.
