Bio

A right-arm fast bowler from country South Australia, Kane Richardson has found great success in the shorter forms of the game.

In 2013, he made a dramatic ODI debut against Sri Lanka at his home ground, the Adelaide Oval – after an economical six overs, he was ordered to discontinue bowling for repeatedly running on the pitch.

Among his many exploits with the ball, Richardson’s 5/68 against India in early 2016 which won him the Man of the Match, stands out from the rest.

The Big Bash League has proved to be a happy hunting ground for him, with his impressive death bowling helping Melbourne Renegades to their maiden title in BBL|08. Richardson’s IPL portfolio is extensive, having played for three different clubs over the years.
