Everything you need to know about the Australian quick, which was signed by Punjab Kings for INR 14 crore in the IPL 2021 auction
24-year-old Australian fast bowler Jhye Richardson was one of the hottest properties at this year’s IPL auction Here’s his backstory
Teenager from Tearaway
Richardson is from Perth, Western Australia, and despite his small size, he gained a reputation for producing an express beat as a teenager playing for the Fremantle Cricket Club, the home of the Marsh brothers, Shaun and Mitchell, and Ashton. Turner He made his A List and First Class debut at 19 for Western Australia and played a BBL game in 2015-16 for the Perth Scorchers But he announced himself the following season as Player of the Match in the BBL Finals as the Scorchers won their third BBL title under coach Justin Langer.
Later that summer, in February 2017, Langer was seconded as coach of the Australian T20I three-game series against Sri Lanka, while full-time coach Darren Lehmann and the test team surrendered in India With a number of top-choice players on the outside, some of BBL’s top players have had the opportunity to get their international breaks and Richardson has played in two of the three games, making his debut in a nail at Geelong
The following summer, he consistently took wickets in all formats, but performed superbly in a Sheffield Shield match for Western Australia against a full-strength New South Wales side with the captain then Australian Steven Smith Richardson won six wickets in the match, including David Warner in the second inning, and played a lot for Smith in his second century of innings
This performance led to his ODI debut, and he was later selected for his first test team, during the infamous Australia test tour in South Africa in 2018.He had only played five matches of first class before going on this tour
A fresh face in a new era
When Langer took over as Australia’s coach after the South Africa tour, Richardson was part of a new team of new faces for Langer’s first assignment, a five-match ODI tour of England. He was part of the attack that gave up a world record ODI score at Trent Bridge
He was on the upcoming T20I Australian tour in Zimbabwe and played all five matches, but was not selected for the UAE Test or T20I tour in October 2018 Instead, he came back and dominated for Western Australia winning 27 wickets in Sheffield Shield’s first five games, including a career best-8 for 47 against New South Wales.
He returned to the ODI squad in January 2019 and took 4 for 26 in the opener against India, including Virat Kohli’s scalp Barely two weeks later, he made his test debut against Sri Lanka in the absence of Josh Hazlewood He took five wickets for the game and gave more variety to Australia’s much-vaunted test attack It seemed, at the time, that he could become a permanent fixture in all three formats for Australia ahead of the Ashes and the World Cup.
Richardson dislocated his right shoulder while diving onto the pitch during the ODI against Pakistan in Sharjah ahead of the World Cup The injury excluded him from the World Cup and the Ashes series that followed He made a low-key return to national cricket later in 2019 but did not immediately hit the pace he had before and struggled to pitch on the pitch as well.
He had a strong BBL09 campaign and improved as the tournament progressed which led to his selection for the Australian tour of South Africa in early 2020 He made his international comeback in the third ODI at Potchefstroom when Mitchell Starc returned home to watch his wife Alyssa Healy play in the T20 World Cup final in Melbourne
When the Covid-19 pandemic put an end to international cricket, Richardson chose to undergo further surgery to stabilize his troublesome shoulder
He missed the first part of Sheffield Shield’s season later this summer as he was still preparing for a full comeback The move paid dividends for the Scorchers in the BBL where he served as the tournament’s first wicket-taker, producing devastating spells in Powerplay and Power Surge that caught the attention of IPL owners and players alike. Australian selectors He also played some excellent cameos with the bat, proving himself to be an inventive hitmaker in death overs coming to No 8
This was Richardson’s form, he was being talked about as a possible inclusion in the Australian test team in South Africa, but his lack of red ball cricket over the past 12 months meant that he has been selected for the T20I New Zealand five-game Australian tour, which begins on Monday
“He’s been wonderful for us He kicks all the hard overs He plays up front, he plays every surge and he often has one to death too Not only is he the main wicket taker, but I think it also has one of the best economic rates of the competition”Adam Voges, Perth Scorchers coach
