Western Australia coach Adam Voges opens up on Jhye Richardson’s recurring injury issue
Earlier this year, Jhye Richardson injured his hamstring during the Big Bash League. He was ruled out of the tournament. Later when he attempted to return to action, the bowler suffered a recurrence of the injury. Western Australia coach Adam Voges expressed that Richardson’s recovery will take time. He is hopeful that the pacer’s surgery will solve the issue of recurring injuries. He said as quoted by Espncricfo,
“Obviously, it’s devastating that he has re-injured that hamstring again and he is going to miss a significant amount of time to get his hamstring right. We all feel for Jhye and we’re hopeful that whatever they come with as a solution can fix his hamstring and we get him back out there because it has been a tough 12 months for him.”
