Jhye Richarson says he’s no issue with if rested for Pakistan tour

Australia pacer Jhye Richarson said he has no issues with Cricket Australia (CA) resting him for the upcoming series in Pakistan.

Richardson said he would rather concentrate on the five-match T20I series against Sri Lanka.

The Cricket Australia selection panel wants to take a cautious approach with the right-arm pacer who has suffered a series of shoulder injuries in recent years, and have included him in the T20I series against Sri Lanka to keep him injury-free.

“For me now the focus is most certainly on the Sri Lankan series with another T20 World Cup coming up (in Australia),” Richardson told cricket.com.au on Tuesday.

“These conversations (with CA selection panel) have always been positive, there’s never been a negative word said regardless. It’s making sure we’re in the best place possible to play for the next 10 years and making sure the body is right and 100 per cent moving forward. No doubt it would be exciting to play Test cricket in the subcontinent, it’s a big challenge,” added Richardson.

“If you look through that schedule there’s an enormous amount of cricket coming up so I think Jhye will be comfortable and get enough cricket. Jhye is highly talented across all formats; he’s a player that we’ve got long-term expectations and long-term hopes for,” said Bailey.

“He still hasn’t played a huge amount of cricket coming back from the injuries and things that he’s had over the past couple of years so (it’s) just making sure that he gets the opportunity to build up … is really important.”

Recently Australia won the five-match Ashes series 4-0 against England at home.
