Bio

A right-arm fast bowler from country South Australia, Kane Richardson made his first appearance for the Redbacks in 2009 and had to wait more than two years before he forced his way into the Sheffield Shield side.

With an action not dissimilar to that of former Test paceman Paul Reiffel, Richardson’s breakthrough season came in 2012-13 when he took 21 wickets from just five Ryobi Cup appearances at a miserly average of 13.8.

It led to his ODI debut, conceding just 15 runs from six overs against Sri Lanka before he was removed from the attack for repeatedly running on the pitch.

Having remodelled his follow through and impressing in the Big Bash League, the Indian Premier League and for Australia A, Richardson returned to Australia’s ODI side for the tour of Zimbabwe in 2014.
