Injury of young pacer Jhye Richardson paved way for Kane Richardson’s entry into the Australian squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 event. The 28-year old was found over the moon with his selection as he missed out on the opportunity of representing the yellow team in the last edition of the tournament.
Kane felt bad for Jhye as every cricketer dreams to play World Cup tournament for his country. However, he admitted that he is jubilant to live out his childhood dream. Reflecting on his journey, the proficient bowler added that he has come a long way.
The South Australia born aims to be in the best shape for a tournament head coach Justin Langer calls ‘the Olympics of cricket’. Sharing his views on the forthcoming mega-event, Kane added that he wants to be a well-rounded bowler for his national team so that his skills could be used at any stage of the game. Moreover, he believes that Australia is in a good position to defend their title.
