Kane Richardson’s IPL Career

Pune Warriors bought Kane Richardson for a huge sum of $700,000 in the IPL 2013 auction. PW finished second-last on the league table that season with only Delhi Daredevils below them. Richardson took 0/38 in four overs in his first appearance in PW’s ninth game played against DD, a match that PW lost by 15 runs. In their next match, against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Richardson returned figures of 1/35 in another lost encounter and was dropped for the next three matches though he found favour once more in PW’s second game against Mumbai Indians (MI). Richardson finished with 1/28 in yet another losing cause.

In the 2014 auction, Rajasthan Royals (RR) bought Richardson, who played seven matches that season. In the opening match, Richardson took 2/25 to help beat Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the next match against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) Richardson took 1/25 in a lost game. Dropped for the next match against CSK, Richardson came back with 2/18 including the prize scalp of Kohli to help his side beat RCB. Richardson then contributed 1/28 and 1/39 in successive wins against CSK and DD, and followed up with figures of 0/28 and 2/43 in his two other matches of the season, against SH and RCB, whom they beat a second time. Richardson played no further part in the tournament and RR finished sixth of eight teams on the points table.

After missing the IPL 2015, Richardson played for RCB in the IPL 2016. Selected for the third match, Richardson took 1/25 in 3 overs against Mumbai Indians (MI) who chased down a target of 171. The next match, against Rising Pune Supergiants, witnessed Richardson’s finest performance in the IPL. He took 3/13 in 3 overs to help keep RPS down to 172/8 while chasing a target of 186. Richardson then took 1/53 and 2/45 in a losing cause against Gujarat Lions and Sunrisers but took no further part in the competition. Thus, Kane Richardson’s IPL 2016 story was partly successful.

Kane Richardson ODI and T20I Career

Despite his prodigious talent, Kane Richardson has been in and out of the Australia ODI and T20I teams. Making his ODI debut against Sri Lanka at the Adelaide Oval in January 2013, the young fast bowler last played in March 2020 on the tour of South Africa. While he played his first T20I against Pakistan at Dubai in October 2014, Richardson’s last T20I game came in February 2020 at Newlands against South Africa. In 25 ODI matches, Kane Richardson has taken 39 wickets at an average of 31.79, with best bowling figures of 5/68, and an economy rate of 5.67. In 18 T20Is, he has grabbed 19 wickets at an average of 26.58, with best bowling figures of 3/18 and an economy rate of 7.77. While the young man is in the team for his bowling, he is no mean bat, with strike rates close to 100 in ODIs, T20Is and the IPL alike.
