One of the favourites with the kids and fans, Sixers all-rounder Stephen O’Keefe has been a valuable member of the Sixers squad on and off the field in their first two seasons of the Big Bash League. A livewire on the field and off it, ‘SOK’ has represented Australia at T20 level and has the ability to stop the opposition in their tracks with his effective left-arm spin. He’s also no slouch with bat and can be called upon to play his hand anywhere in the order.
After growing up in the outer suburb of Richmond in Sydney after his family came here from Malaysia, he has now moved to the beachside suburb of Manly and enjoys all that Sydney has to offer. He is happy to list Taylor Swift as one of his favourite artists, and Tiger Woods as someone he would like to hang out with, although lists Shane Warne as his cricketing hero growing up.
Great all round talent and cool under pressure
