Aussie’s pacer Kane Richardson has been ruled out of the ongoing tour of India due to an injury. The-29-years-old in-form pacer experienced some left side pain ahead of the first T20I in Visakhapatnam and has failed to recover adequately. He will be replaced by Andrew Tye, who will join the team on Thursday in Hyderabad, along with striker Shaun Marsh.

“Kane reported some left side pain at training prior to the opening T20I in Vizag,” David Beakley, Australia’s physiotherapist told on Wednesday. “Unfortunately he has not recovered well enough in order to play a further part in the tour. “Kane will return home to continue his rehabilitation, and we monitor his progress over the coming weeks.”

Tye though comes into the India Tour 2019 on the back of some good form in the Big Bash League where he claimed 17 wickets in 14 games for the Perth Scorchers. With Richardson’s injury, Australia is now left with only four specialist pacers in the squad, Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jason Behrendorff, ahead of the final T20I.
