South Australian Richardson has done his fair share of miles on the white-ball franchise treadmill. In 2013 Pune Warriors stumped up $700,000US for his services - only two players went for more money in that year's draft. He has also represented Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
In 2010 - before full international honours were earned - Richardson (44) top-scored and produced an economical 0 for 20 from seven overs in the Under-19 World Cup final as Australia defeated Pakistan by 25 runs.
Since making his ODI debut in 2013, Richardson has represented his country intermittently with his five for 68 against India at Canberra his standout performance.
The bowler finished as the 2018/19 Big Bash League's leading wicket-taker in a campaign that saw his Melbourne Renegades side win the title, defeating their cross-city rivals Melbourne Stars in the final.
Richardson pulled out of a proposed stint with Derbyshire in the T20 Blast in order to replace Jhye Richardson - who suffered a dislocated shoulder in an ODI against Pakistan - in Australia's World Cup squad.
