Kane Richardson became Australia’s 201st One Day International player when he made his debut in January 2013.
A proven performer at state level, 21-year-old Richardson has enjoyed a short but successful domestic career for South Australia and the Adelaide Strikers in the KFC Big Bash League, including impressive figures of 3-9 against the Thunder.
The right-handed fast bowler possesses a devastating yorker and ability to trick batsmen with deceptive changes of pace, both which have made him one of the rising stars of Australian cricket.
He formed a crucial part of the ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup winning team in 2010, top scoring in the final with 44 runs.
His innings helped the Aussies reach 207 off their 50 overs and set the platform for a 25-run victory.
