IPL FANTASY PREDICTION : One reason could be that he left the IPL early last year: Richardson on him, as well as Zampa’s failure to sell at the IPL auction


Kane Richardson, an Australian bowler, has claimed that his and Adam Zampa’s failure to sell in this year’s major auction was due to them leaving the Indian Premier League (IPL) season midway last year.


Last season, Zampa and Richardson, who played for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), chose to abandon the IPL midway through the India phase after COVID-19 instances began to rise in India and there were uncertainties about whether Australia would admit any tourists.

“I was more surprised for him than for myself.” To be totally honest, I recall having a talk with him last year when we left early due to the circumstances. Look, I told him, this could come back to bite us, and it wasn’t a priority for us to be there at the time. “We wanted to come back to Australia,” Richardson said, according to ESPNcricinfo.
“I believe there would be some customers who would be hesitant to pick us up, assuming we wouldn’t return.”

That is, without a doubt, a factor. I’m only speculating on what I believe will be a factor. I’m not sure. I’ve never had a conversation with a franchise or a person that claims this is the case. “However, I believe I didn’t go as well the year before with the birth of my son,” he continued.

Richardson continued, “So my reputation probably is that I haven’t gone in the last couple of years, so it’s definitely not something that I am.” I make an effort to play as much cricket as possible. But I don’t think I’ll be able to go because of the events in the last couple of IPLs. But it’s not a name I’d like to have.”

“So that’s just us speculating. I believe it would be a reason for them to be apprehensive of our showing up, but I’m not certain “Added he.

In the third T20I against Sri Lanka, Richardson shone with the ball as Australia took a commanding 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

The bowler was named Player of the Match after taking three wickets.
