Jhye Richardson, a fast bowler for the Perth Scorchers, has a hamstring injury and is expected to miss two to three weeks. However, coach Adam Voges is optimistic that Richardson would be back in time for the BBL finals if the Scorchers advance.

His mild strain was verified by scans on Thursday, but the Scorchers are likely to be careful with him given his history of soft tissue injuries over the last two seasons.

Adam Voges Hopeful Of Seeing Jhye Richardson’s Comeback Soon

“It’s on the very minor end of hamstring strains, two to three weeks,” Voges said on Friday. “We’re certainly hopeful that we’ll see him before the end of the tournament again.

“I think you need to [be cautious], certainly with someone of Jhye’s calibre. But we’ve got a world-class medical staff here. And I’ll trust them to put the work in with Jhye over the next two weeks. And hopefully, we’ll see him back and we’ll get him back on the park as soon as possible.”

Jhye Richardson’s summer has already been disrupted. Prior to the BBL, Western Australia took great care to protect him; as a result, he only participated in two of the summer’s first six Sheffield Shield games while suffering various aches and pains, including a damaged heel.

Lance Morris Joins Perth Scorchers Squad

Lance Morris’ withdrawal from Australia’s Test team to rejoin the BBL has helped the Scorchers. Marcus Harris and Morris left Sydney on Friday to travel to the BBL to represent their respective clubs. Prior to the Renegades’ matchup with the Hobart Hurricanes on Saturday at Marvel Stadium, Harris has travelled to Melbourne to reunite with the team.

In the event that Australia’s Test team need a concussion replacement or a substitute fielder for the remaining of the Sydney Test, Peter Handscomb has decided to leave Renegades to join the Australia squad in Sydney as a backup for Harris.

Morris has travelled to Perth and will get the opportunity to play for the Scorchers against the Brisbane Heat on Saturday at Perth Stadium.

“We’ll see how he pulls up,” Voges said. “He’s done a heap of work, obviously, preparing for Test match cricket. I know he’s had a white ball in his hand over in Sydney in the last couple of days, starting to prepare to come back to us. So we’ll see how he pulls up from his plane trip today. There’s every opportunity for him tomorrow.”

“He [Payne] arrived just in the new year,” Voges said. “He’s settled in really well. He’s had a couple of training sessions with us. And we’ll have another hit out today. Quality left-arm seamer, who can swing the ball. And if he gets his opportunity tomorrow, I’m sure he’ll do a really good job.”

Faf du Plessis, a South African hitter, will no longer be playing for the Scorchers against the Heat since he has gone to participate in the SA20 competition, which begins next week. The English player Adam Lyth will take the field against the Heat but will also depart soon to travel to the ILT20 in the UAE. Stephen Eskinazi, a hitter for Middlesex, has joined the Scorchers as a foreign substitute.
