Dislocated shoulder obstacles Jhye Richardson’s World Cup hopes
Jhye Richardson has suffered from a dislocated right shoulder and will miss the remainder of Australia’s one day international series against Pakistan.
The injury, therefore, pushed Richardson in shadows on his World Cup availability.
The paceman claimed 2 for 16 before landing awkwardly while fielding in the second match of the series in Sharjah.
During the 11th over of the innings, Richardson dived to prevent a boundary. The right-armer landed on his right elbow and looked in trouble straight away. Team Australia’s medical assistance took him out of the field and it was later confirmed Richardson had dislocated his shoulder.
He will, now, fly home to discover the extent of the injury.
Aussie captain Aaron Finch stated, “He’ll get home, have some scans and assess the damage.”
“He’s in good spirits. His shoulder popped out a little bit. Unfortunate for the youngster,”
Finch further said.
Australia won the second ODI by eight wickets and took a 2-0 lead on Sunday.
Jhye Richardson so far played 12 limited over matches for Australia claiming 24 wickets with an economy rate of 5.85.
Unfortunately it’s a dislocated shoulder for Jhye Richardson, he certainly won’t be back out there tonight. @LouisDBCameron reports from Sharjah: https://t.co/faDBKN6Dto #PAKvAUS pic.twitter.com/ZNA2E1Pjpa
