Jhye Richardson, West Australia’s star bowler, suffered a hamstring injury prior to the Marsh Cup championship match versus South Australia at the Western Australia Cricket Association (WACA) Field, and was subsequently ruled out of the competition. Due to this development, he will not be included in Australia’s team for the three One-Day Internationals that it will play in India (ODI).
Jhye, who has appeared in 36 international games for Australia, was named to a 16-member squad earlier, on February 23, for three one-day internationals against Rohit Sharma and his team. He is no longer able to participate in the vital India tour due to his injury, though.
He said that he played his comeback game for Fremantle of the WA Premier Cricket league against Wanneroo on Saturday, March 4.Following his four-over time in the game, he experienced hamstring tightness. Richardson was sent for scans after reporting, which revealed he had aggravated the injury he sustained while playing for the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League (BBL). He did, however, have a strong showing with the ball during the game, taking 3 wickets while only allowing 5 runs in 4 overs.
Jhye Richardson is questionable for the IPL in 2023 and the ODI series against India.
After leaving the Australian team for the three ODIs against Rohit Sharma and his team, the selection committee chose Tasmania’s Nathan Ellis, a medium-fast bowler, to bolster the bowling unit. The 28-year-old has participated in eight international games for Australia, including five T20 Internationals and three ODI (T20I). Ellis was a member of the Australian ODI team that travelled.2022 in Pakistan.
He was put up for auction in December for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 and was purchased for his base price of INR 1.5 crore by the five-time IPL champion Mumbai Indians (MI). Nevertheless, the injury that has been bothering him for more than two months has put his hopes of competing in the major T20 competition in jeopardy. The quick bowler had three wickets in three games in 2021 while wearing the Punjab Kings (PBKS) shirt in the lucrative league.
