Kane Richardson Ruled Out Of Pakistan Tour, Ben Dwarshuis Replaced Him

Australia will field one of their most inexperienced pace attacks in more than 50 years of one-day international cricket after a hamstring injury ruled Kane Richardson out of their limited-overs tour of Pakistan.

“Although the injury is considered minor it was decided the long trip to Pakistan along with four games in eight days and short turnarounds it was in Kane Richardson’s best interests to remain home,” a Cricket Australia statement said.

Ben Dwarshuis, who also plays for Sydney Sixers, is uncapped at the international level but was previously part of Australia’s T20 squad during a tri-series in 2017-18 and has been part of the IPL. If he features in the ODI side during the three-match series, it would come after just nine List A matches for New South Wales.
Kane Richardson’s absence leaves the pace attack to be led by Jason Behrendorff and Sean Abbott alongside Nathan Ellis, supplemented by all-rounders Mitchell Marsh, Cameron Green and Marcus Stoinis.

Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood And Pat Cummins Have Been Rested For White Ball Series Against Pakistan

Multi-format quicks Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins have been rested for the white-ball portion of the tour. Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins are both part of the upcoming IPL. Captain Aaron Finch was confident the squad still had the depth to compete in Pakistan.
“One thing that will help is the guys have played a lot of T20 cricket,” he said. “They’re quite inexperienced for Australia but I think playing T20 cricket will help them in that regard. There’s a lot of skill in the group and guys that have been around one-day cricket for a long time domestically as well.

“Having a lot of a lot of faith in their own ability is really important. When you have got guys like Abbott, he’s been around for a long time [and] Behrendorff. They’ve played a lot of state cricket, so I think it’ll be fine.”
With 11 ODIs to his name, Jason Behrendorff will now be the most experienced leader of a pace group completed by Sean Abbott (two ODIs), Nathan Ellis and now Ben Dwarshuis (both yet to debut).
Australia only played three ODIs last year – on the tour of West Indies – with home matches this season against New Zealand postponed due to Covid-19 border restrictions. They have won all three of their series in the ODI Super League with 2-1 victories over England (away) and India (home) alongside the West Indies’ success.
The Pakistan tour will be the fourth time in the past five years that Australia will embark on a one-day campaign without at least one of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins in their squad, with two of those previous instances resulting in a 0-5 series defeat.
Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head have been included in Australia’s white-ball squad for the upcoming limited-overs tour of Pakistan. Limited overs specialist Glenn Maxwell will also skip the white ball series, with the veteran all-rounder taking time off for his wedding.
Australia ODI and T20 squad: Aaron Finch (c), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Jason Behrendorff, Alex Carey, Ben Dwarshuis, Nathan Ellis, Cameron Green, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Ben McDermott, Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa
