Australian star fast bowler Jhye Richardson has been ruled out of the 3-match ODI series against India, which is scheduled to begin after the conclusion of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023, and is even doubtful for IPL 2023.
According to an ESPNCricinfo report, Richardson suffered a hamstring injury in his first-grade game back since the initial injury occurred during the BBL.
The bowler hasn’t played since straining his hamstring in January. At the initial stage, the injury seemed minor. However, it took him two months to head back into the field. Yet he was named in Australia’s 16-man squad for the ODIs, starting March 17 in Mumbai.
The report further stated that Richardson dealt with soft-tissue injuries over the past two seasons apart from the shoulder injury he sustained in 2019.
The reports further suggested that Nathan Ellis has been named as Richardson’s replacement for the series.
