The 22-year-old, Australian Fast Bowler, Jhye Richardson dislocated his shoulder after he fell on his bowling arm in a Second One day International on Sunday against Pakistan. This was done so in an attempt to save a boundary after which he was escorted back to Perth from Sharjah. The youngster was at a 2-16 figure, but unfortunately, he had to leave the field in the 11th over, and his chances to be included in the upcoming World Cup in May were nowhere to be seen after the incident.

Cricket Australia tweeted that it was a dislocated shoulder for him, and he took a flight back to his Australian Kingdom on Monday to assess the damage done. They were looking for an expert opinion, which put his inclusion in the World Cup squad off-guard. The Bowler was off the train of motivation, but he had to stay upbeat.

He was pretty fabulous from the start and was showing impressive performance against the Pakistani Cricketers at Sharjah. His best bowling figure in ODI is 4/26, a provactively very rare figure for some bowlers to achieve in this less time. Check his stats. 

After the full examination by the Australian men’s team doctor, he said the there was some tissue damage followed by dislocation, but there was no case of fracture or bone damage. Hearing this, Josh Hazelwood, which was replaced by the Bowler to be included in the National Team, and Mitchell Starch, were on the line in the World Cup Squad as Australia had to get their guns armed for the World Cup.
