Australian cricketer Stephen O’Keefe has been fined $20,000 for ‘highly inappropriate’ comments he made while under the influence of alcohol.

The Test spinner made the comments at an official Cricket NSW function.

Cricket Australia said O’Keefe was charged with a breach of Article 2.2.11 of the Code – conduct unbecoming of a representative.

O’Keefe has accepted the penalty.

He’ll also undergo counselling.

‘At an official Cricket NSW function I became intoxicated and made highly inappropriate comments. There is no excuse for this and I take full responsibility and offer an unconditional apology,’ O’Keefe said.
