O'Keefe apologises for his remarks
Australian commentator Kerry O'Keefe, who courted controversy for his 'canteen jibe' remarks on India's domestic cricket set-up, on Sunday, penned an open letter on Fox Sports.
In the letter, the former Australian cricketer stressed that he did not intend to disrespect Indian cricket and was just making a tongue-in-cheek remark.
“When I made a remark about Indian first-class batting averages within their domestic cricket competition being made against a 'canteen' bowling attack, I was being entirely tongue in cheek. I was certainly not disrespecting Indian cricket, where I toured as a schoolboy and for which I have the greatest admiration as a cricketing nation,” he said.
