Richardson saved high respect for the Indian hitter, referring to him as one of the top T20 batters in the world when speaking to the official host broadcaster after the innings.
“I believe Suryakumar Yadav missed the center of the bat against us for the first time. It was fantastic taking him on since he’s among the world’s finest hitters, according to Richardson.
Richardson claimed four wickets for Australia in the warm-up game. He stated that he does not anticipate being called into the playing XI at the beginning of the game but would be prepared if he is.
“I don’t anticipate playing, but if something with form or injury, I could be in, just happy to be out in the middle today,” said Richardson.
“The sun is out, it’s a beautiful hitting pitch, and the atmosphere is charming, so we’ll go out there and enjoy our period in the middle. We generally fill the stadium for games against India. Therefore, it was disappointing to play in front of an empty one, “Added he.
After KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav produced strokes of 57 and 50, respectively, India reached 186/7 in 20 overs.
Aaron Finch, the captain of Australia, has previously chosen to field first while facing India after winning the toss.
