Kane Richardson Biography


Kane Richardson is an Australian cricketer, born on 12th February 1991 in Eudunda, South Australia. He is primarily a right-arm medium fast bowler and bats right-handed as a tail ender.


Background


Richardson represented his state for the first time in a KFC T20 Big Bash tie against Queensland in 2009. He was picked for the domestic ODI squad thereafter.


Richardson was picked in the Australian squad for the 2010 ICC U19 World Cup. Before the tournament, he picked a five-wicket haul in a youth test in India. He picked six wickets in the three games he played as Australia won the tournament under Mitchell Marsh.


Richardson had his breakthrough season during the 2012-13 Ryobi Cup. He took 21 wickets from six games at an average of 13.80. As a result, he was called up to the national team when Mitchell Starc was injured.


Debut


Kane Richardson made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka at Adelaide in 2013. He scored a duck as Australia were bowled out for a poultry 170. He was economical with the ball but could not manage a wicket as his figures read 0/15 from six overs.


Richardson was dropped thereafter and played his next ODI more than a year later.


He made his T20I debut against Pakistan at Dubai in 2014. He took 1/13 in his three overs.


Rise to Glory


Kane Richardson’s most impressive performance came against India at Canberra in 2016 when he picked 5/68 to help his side to victory.


The latter half of 2017 saw Kane Richardson emerge as one of the important figures of Australia’s bowling department in the face of injuries faced by other players. He was one of the shining performers of Australia’s dismal tour of India. He picked 3/55 at Kolkata and then followed it up with 3/58 in Bengaluru.


Low Points


Kane Richardson has found his stride in the international scene regularly hampered by injuries. He has had problems with his back and hamstring which has further deterred him from finding consistency in his career.


Richardson’s task is often more complicated by the presence of Australia’s Fab 4 in fast bowling- Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and James Pattinson. As a result, he has been overlooked regularly in favour of these world-class fast bowlers.


Club Career


Richardson made headlines in 2013 when he was bought by the Pune Warriors India for $700,000 in the Indian Premier League. He played three matches in the season and took only a couple of wickets.


He was bought by the Rajasthan Royals in the next season and enjoyed his most productive IPL season as he took seven wickets at an economy of 7.62.


He appeared for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2016 and returned with 7 wickets at an average of 19.42.


After spending six seasons of KFC Big Bash League playing for the Adelaide Strikers, Richardson changed ship to join the Melbourne Renegades at the start of this season.
