Jhye Richardson withdrawn from World Cup Squad 

Australian fast bowler, Jhye Richardson, has been withdrawn from Australia’s World Cup Squad as he continues to recover from the shoulder dislocation he suffered in the UAE in March.

After a recent scan and testing with the team’s medical staff, it was determined that Jhye was not going to be ready to bowl at the level required for him to be considered for selection at the start of the World Cup.

Bupa Team Support Physiotherapist, David Beakley, said:

“This is obviously very disappointing news for the team and for Jhye, who has been exceptional throughout his rehabilitation process.

“After his most recent assessment and attempting to bowl in the nets, it was clear that Jhye was not progressing as fast as required and therefore, in consultation with selectors, we made the decision to withdraw him from the squad.

“Jhye will continue with his rehabilitation and we will look to resume bowling in the coming weeks. At this stage we are still hopeful that he could be available for the Australia A tour of England.”

Kane Richardson has been called up to replace Jhye in Australia’s World Cup Squad.
