Bowler Richardson to return home from Pakistan tour due to shoulder injury
March 25, 2019

Australian fast bowler Jhye Richardson will head home from the Pakistan tour due to shoulder injury.

Richardson took 2 for 16 in the second one-dayer against Pakistan in Sharjah but fell awkwardly on his bowling arm and left the field in the 11th over.

In a tweet, Cricket Australia said he is obviously pretty shattered but he is trying to stay upbeat.

Losing another quick bowler is a big blow for Australia barely two months out from the World Cup with Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood also battling injuries.
