Richardson has excluded the World Cup


Jhye Richardson's recovery efforts will now focus on the Ashes after the Australian fast bowler was scratched by the World Cup next month.

The Australian of the West dislocated his shoulder while he was in the field in an ODI in March, with scans results this week sufficient to convince the team staff that he would not be suitable for the opening of the Cup of the World in Australia on 1 June.

Richardson suffers a shoulder injury

Still hoping to join Australia A tour of England before the first Ashes Test on 1 August, was replaced on the team by Kane Richardson with Josh Hazlewood again neglected.

"This is obviously very disappointing news for the team and for Jhye, which was exceptional during his rehabilitation," team physiotherapist David Beakley said.

"After his most recent evaluation and the attempt to fix the nets, it was clear that Jhye was not proceeding as quickly as possible and therefore, in agreement with the selectors, we made the decision to withdraw him from the team.

"Jhye will continue with his rehabilitation and we will try to resume bowling next week."

22-year-old Richardson was seen as an exciting prospect in England given his pace, swing and control, which brought him 24 wickets at 26 in his first 12 ODI.

Kane Richardson was part of recent Australian tours in India and the United Arab Emirates and joins a fast World Cup bowling contingent including Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jason Behrendorff and Mitchell Starc

Last week in South Australia she was in Brisbane this week for the Australian World Cup championship, along with fast bowling mates Hazlewood, Michael Neser and Sean Abbott.
