Kane Richardson believes that he’ll make the cut for Australia’s 2020 T20I World Cup squad if he makes the most of the opportunities being afforded to him and keeps performing consistently.

Richardson, after being dropped from the white-ball setup since almost last 12 months, has only recently made way to establish himself as a sure-shot part of Australia’s limited-overs squad, courtesy of some impressive performances in domestic cricket.

Speaking ahead of Australia’s decisive third T20I against South Africa at Cape Town, Richardson spoke about his chances of being included the Aussies’ World Cup squad, emphasizing that he doesn’t have much room for error and needs to be firing on all cylinders whenever he’s given an opportunity to exhibit what he’s got.

“If I keep getting picked and I keep performing, I think I will be there. But, there is so much that can happen, so much can change. I do not know what goes into the selection and whether it’s certain grounds that I will be suited to more at,” cricket.com.au quoted Richardson as saying.

Richardson acknowledged the fact that the competition for places between pacers in the current Aussie set-up is cut-throat and as intense as it has ever been.

With Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins most definitely locked in as the two spearheads to lead the pace attack, Richardson will be fighting for his berth against the likes of Jhye Richardson, Sean Abbott, and Josh Hazlewood.

The crucial third T20I between Australia and South Africa will be a great platform for Richardson to show the selectors what he’s really made of.

If he’s able to steer his side to a series victory against the Proteas, he’ll cement his position to secure a maiden T20 World Cup berth.
