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 - he carved out a career at Durham, becoming a Championship winner and reliable contributor across the formats. He even won belated international recognition, making his T20I debut at the age of 32 for Germany, who he qualified for through a German grandfather.
