Richardson puts family first and withdraws from India series
Richardson’s decision to skip the India series means he is unlikely to play for his country this summer, with Australia’s next limited overs assignment not due until February.
“It was a difficult decision for Kane to make but one which has the complete support of the selectors and the entire playing squad,” national selector Trevor Hohns said.
“Kane wanted to remain in Adelaide with Nyki and their newborn son. We will always support our players and their families; even more so given the challenging environment we are in.
“We will miss what he brings to the team but completely understand and support his decision.”
