Kane Richardson added to West End Redbacks squad
The West End Redbacks have added Kane Richardson to their squad for Monday’s Marsh Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania at Karen Rolton Oval.
Richardson most recently featured in Australia’s limited-overs tour of England, which was the team’s return to international cricket.
The 29-year-old has played 32 first-class matches for South Australia, with 96 wickets and best figures of 5/69.
Interim Head Coach Luke Butterworth said:
“We’ve brought Kane in as an experienced bowler and he adds another dimension to our attack.
“After Kane featured in an international tour which included a period of isolation, it was best for him to work up to the demands of first-class cricket last weekend through a two-day practice match.
“Daniel Worrall is also progressing with his calf injury, with a view that he could potentially be available for selection in round three.”
Jason Gillespie will finish his mandatory 14-day quarantine halfway through the match against Tasmania.
Alex Carey remains unavailable for selection due to pre-existing commitments with Delhi Capitals in the IPL.
Play begins at 11am on Monday at Karen Rolton Oval. Entry is free.
