Profile

With a proud cricketing heritage in his family, it is hardly surprising that Michael Richardson chose to pursue a career in sport. A wicketkeeper-batsman like his father Dave - the former South Africa gloveman who became chief executive of the ICC in 2012 -- Richardson took the initial step from university to professional cricketer when he became an MCC Young Cricketer in 2008, having played for Nottingham University and in the Nottinghamshire Premier League since 2006.
