Kane delighted

Kane Richardson admitted he was “over the moon” at receiving a call-up to the Australian squad for the ICC World Cup 2019, a tournament that Australia coach Justin Langer is calling “the Olympics of cricket”.

Four years ago, Richardson, the pace bowler, was on the fringes of selection, but missed the cut for the ICC World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand. He was set to watch from the sidelines at this year’s event in England and Wales too, before an injury to Jhye Richardson left a spot open.

Kane was sympathetic to Jhye’s misfortune, but admitted that he was delighted at the chance to live out a “childhood dream”.
