A left-arm seamer, Andy McKay played five seasons for Auckland before shifting to Wellington during the 2009-10 season. McKay had his share of injury problems and even missed an entire season due to a side strain. But his career really took off from the 2007-08 season, when he bagged 24 first-class wickets and followed it up with a similar performance the next season. In his first season with Wellington, he was the joint leading wicket-taker in the one-day competition when the national selectors came calling, including him for the home ODIs against Bangladesh. It was his pace which really impressed his captain Daniel Vettori. Outside of cricket, McKay is a physiotherapist.
