Australia star Jhye Richardson will make his much-awaited return to the IPL next year after earning a contract in the ongoing IPL auction 2024.

The right-arm pacer had registered himself at a base price of Rs 1.50 crores. Delhi Capitals opened the bid for him before Royal Challengers Bangalore joined the race. However, the Delhi-based outfit managed to outbid its Bengaluru-based counterpart and signed up Jhye Richardson for Rs 5 crores.

The 27-year-old has not played in the IPL since his debut season in 2021 when he plied his trade for Punjab Kings. In his first season, he managed to play just three games and picked up 3 wickets. In 2023, he was bought up by Mumbai Indians but missed the entire season after undergoing surgery to address hamstring issues.

Jhye Richardson has already represented Australia in all three formats and has picked up more than 50 wickets in international cricket. He has also played 85 T20s and has taken 112 wickets.
