A pace bowler who has often been on the fringes of Australia's ODI and T20 teams, Kane Richardson is know for his skills at the death and has an excellent yorker. Although he has struggled to gain much traction at first-class level for South Australia, Richardson is very effective in the shorter forms and in 2019 was a late addition to the World Cup squad.
He has been with three IPL franchises, starting with a USD700,000 deal from the Pune Warriors in 2013 although he only played three matches for them. Since then he has appeared for Rajasthan Royals and Bangalore Royal Challengers.
His ODI debut came at his home ground, Adelaide Oval, in 2013, but he suffered the ignominy of being ordered out of the attack by the umpires for repeatedly running on the pitch. His breakthrough international performance came in January 2016, when he picked up five wickets in a Man of the Match effort against India in Canberra. He played Australia's next ODI in New Zealand but did not play another for 18 months before returning on the 2017 ODI tour of India.
He lost his spot after a tough tour of England in 2018 but a strong BBL for the champions the Melbourne Renegades put him back in the mix.
