Western Australian fast bowler Andrew Tye has been brought into the squad for the Dettol ODI Series and Dettol T20I Series against India, in place of Kane Richardson.

Richardson has withdrawn from the squad to be with his wife and their newborn son. He informed selectors of his decision yesterday.

“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.”

Tye was part of Australia’s tour of the UK this year for his closing skills with the ball, in what is considered a like for like replacement for Richardson.

“AJ is incredibly skilled in both forms of the short game. He impressed in the UK with his high work ethic and his positive energy around the squad,” Hohns said. “He is a great player to be able to call on.”

With the South Australian outbreak leading to some Marsh Sheffield Shield players flying into New South Wales yesterday, West Australian batsmen D’Arcy Short and Josh Philippe will train with the squad from next week.

As the situation developed, Short flew east with fellow West Australian Cameron Green as a precaution. Short will move on to join his Hobart Hurricanes and Philippe the Sydney Sixers for the start of the KFC Big Bash League. Phillipe is currently in hotel quarantine in Sydney following his return from the Indian Premier League.
