    Jhye Richardson - Performance Watch

    He's played precisely one innings of one Test but former England captain Michael Vaughan has already seen enough of Jhye Richardson to suggest he be pitchforked straight into the Australian XI for the first Ashes Test.

    Vaughan has been a longtime fan of Richardson, saying as far back as February of 2017 that Richardson, who was then just 20, should be considered for that next summer's Ashes series. At that point, he had played just one first-class game but Vaughan knew he looked 'seriously good'.

    Fast forward to Thursday at the Gabba and Vaughan was able to double-down on the back of Richardson's seriously good Test debut, when he took 3-26 against Sri Lanka with a fine exhibition of pinpoint and dangerous swing bowling.

    The tourists were all out for 144 with Australia losing Joe Burns (15) and Usman Khawaja (11) in the chase, and will resume on Friday afternoon at 2-72 with Marcus Harris (40) and Nathan Lyon (0) at the crease.

    The 22-year-old was no good thing to even play in Brisbane, with many suggesting Victorian veteran Peter Siddle as the far safer bet. But Richardson was on song from his very first over, beating the bat time and again and producing one of the balls of the summer when he demolished the stumps of Kusal Mendis with a picture-perfect outswinger.

    Richardson was lively and energetic on a responsive pitch at the Gabba, which seamed and bounced like the days of old. It was a good start for new curator David Sandurski and the best day one deck of the summer.

    But it was his ability to move the pink ball through the air that emboldened Vaughan to suggest that Richardson not only tour with the Australians in the English summer but be an automatic selection for the series opener at Edgebaston starting on August 1.

    Vaughan said other grounds might warrant a change in the Australian rotation but Richardson was the ideal man to try and find a way through the English top order on a ground that would suit his style of bowling perfectly.

    "It's Edgbaston," Vaughan told Fox Cricket. "The Richardson style of bowler is exactly what you require.

    "It's a little bit slower, you pitch it up and get a bit of movement. That first game at Edgbaston, you need consistent movement and that's exactly why Jhye Richardson will do."

    Richardson was outstanding in his first time in the baggy green but had ample assistance from Pat Cummins, who took 4/39 as the Sri Lankans battled their way to 144, which was almost a pass mark after their early predicament.

    Only Niroshan Dickwella could muster any serious resistance, making 64 from 78 in an unorthodox and entertaining knock that included a ramped six off Mitchell Starc and some T20 style wallops as the tail enders fell by the wayside.

    "I didn't feel as comfortable as I would have liked in my first few overs. But for me, to see the ball swing, that's a big key for me. Then I'm instantly more confident in what I'm doing. To get that first wicket releases a lot of emotion," Richardson said.

    "The longer it goes on, the harder you might try. It was good to get it early. It's been a massive learning experience for me. It's happened so quickly. To get so much experience in such a short space of time, to learn about the pressure, the better I'll be able to handle it in the long run."

    Starc (2-41) had some bad luck early when a wicket was overturned on review but his patience was rewarded when he had Suranga Lakmal edging to the slips to finally bring up his 200th Test wicket.

    The Sri Lankans looked uncomfortable and underprepared for the conditions in Brisbane and never looked like setting a daunting total after slumping to 5-66, with Nathan Lyon (1-38) chiming in with the pivotal wicket of opener Dimuth Karunaratne for 24.

    Australia began the chase under lights and eased their way to 0-37 before recalled opener Burns missed a golden chance to fill his boots when he departed for 15. He nicked a good one from Lakmal (1-24) that swung late and found its way into the hands of Mendis, who completed a difficult catch in the cordon.

    Khawaja played a messy shot to the off-spin of Dilruwan Perera and cut a dejected figure as he trudged back to the rooms after chopping one on to his leg stump, bring Lyon to the crease as nightwatchman.

    He survived until stumps but not before being dropped in close by Roshen Silva off the bowling off Perera (1-4), allowing him to resume on Friday to try and advance off the mark and the Australian cause.

    He has a beautiful outswinger at 140. That's lethal. Has a good attitude. Looks like a decent lower order bat and can field well. Hazelwood should be threatened

    I always wait for one season to be over before completely judging someone as sometimes they do well when they are new to the scene and regress later. Generally Australian fast bowlers don't regress as much as some of the pacers from Asia. He will be a handy player in England. If England bats like how they did today Australia will rip them into shreds.

    'Breaking the stereotype of fast bowlers is what I've been trying' – Richardson

    After enjoying a magical first day of his career in Test cricket, Jhye Richardson gave insight to reporters after play on the bowler that served as his inspiration when growing up.

    Richardson, just 22 years of age, pinpointed South Africa’s Dale Steyn as a strong influence upon his bowling. “He’s a similar sort of build, the untraditional I guess you could say, fast bowler, quite skinny and not as tall as everybody else,” said Richardson. “He proved that he could be a class bowler with that sort of build and bowl at some extreme pace. Breaking the stereotype of fast bowlers is what I've been trying to do."

    It was a day to remember for the Western Australia speedster, who after being presented his Baggy Green by former Australia bowler Damien Fleming, finished with figures of 3/26 to help his side bowl Sri Lanka out for just 144. Despite collecting his maiden scalp in the twelfth over of the opening session – Dinesh Chandimal edging one to Joe Burns at second slip – Richardson explained that it took some time to truly find his rhythm with the ball in hand.

    “I probably didn’t feel as comfortable as I would have liked in my first couple of overs. It probably took me a little bit to really get going. For me to see the ball swing, that’s a big key for me – if the ball’s swinging then I’m instantly more confident in what I’m doing and to get that first wicket, it just releases a lot of emotion, a lot of built up tension that you might have. I guess the longer it goes on, the harder you might try, so it was good to get it relatively early.”

    The movement on offer with the pink ball was a pleasant sight for Richardson, on a day that saw twelve wickets fall in total.

    “For everyone to see the ball swing, it’s exciting for the fans, it’s exciting for us, it’s exciting for everyone. I think it brings the bowlers into the game a little bit more. This was a fantastic wicket, it’ll be nice to see what happens over the next four days. To see the ball swing that early and then to see it nip around again under lights, I think it’s great to see, I think it’s perfect.”

    It has been an impressive last 12 months for Richardson since his ODI debut against England last January – he removed Virat Kohli in all three of Australia’s ODIs against India this month. Nevertheless, the Test debutant isn’t looking too far ahead in a year that will see Australia follow the ICC Cricket World Cup with an Ashes tour to England.

    "As soon as you starting thinking about what could come ahead or what's coming up for you, then I think all these different emotions get better of you, and you starting trying harder and you might not be bowling at your best. For me, concentrating on day two is my next focus and then obviously concentrating on day three. We have something up in the changing room that the team likes to go by - the next ball is the most important thing in your life at that moment."

    Jhye Richardson suffers dislocated shoulder

    Australia’s Jhye Richardson will take no further part in the second ODI v Pakistan after injuring his shoulder in the field.

    He suffered the injury while diving to prevent a boundary in the 11th over. The right-armer landed on his right elbow and looked in trouble straight away. He was helped from the field by Australia’s medical team, and it was later confirmed Richardson had dislocated his shoulder.

    The 22-year-old was pictured on TV with his arm in a sling in the Australian dressing room shortly afterwards, with his presence, and the fact that he smiled and gave a thumbs up, offering hope that his injury might not be too serious.

    However, the full extent of the injury is yet to be confirmed, and with the Men’s Cricket World Cup two months away, Australia’s fans and team management will be desperate for him to receive a clean bill of health.

    Jhye Richardson Update from CA

    The following quotes can be attributed to Bupa Support Australian Men's Team Doctor, Richard Saw.

    "Jhye Richardson has had scans on his right shoulder to assess the extent of his injury. The scans demonstrated the usual soft tissue damage we expect following a dislocation but fortunately has excluded any bone damage or fracture.

    "We are hopeful that Jhye will not require surgery but he will see a shoulder specialist early next week for a further opinion.

    "We will be able to provide an update in respect to next steps once we have all the information on the table."

    I will like him to replace Starc for the last test in Brisbane. He really looks to be a terrific bowler and is in great form.
    Starc is way too much off color to play a 4th test this summer. He shouldn't have played more than 2.
    If Pattinson is fit, it should be a toss up between both Pato and Richardson.

    He is better than all Pakistani bowlers at present. Infact I would even go as far as saying all 3 of Australian bowlers are better than Wasim even. Would easily pick cummo, hazel and even patto or starc over Wasim.

    And would you pick Wade over Tendulkar and Imrul Kayes over Sunil Gavaskar and Vijay Shankar over Ian Botham?
    You seem to be a good poster so will love to have your insights on these important questions.
