West End Redbacks’ paceman, Kane Richardson has been withdrawn from the Australia A squad after scans today revealed a minor stress reaction in his back.

Richardson has flown home from Hobart and will miss the remainder of the one-day series.

Australia A Physiotherapist David Beakley said:

“Kane reported increasing lower back pain during the match on Monday and consequently travelled to Melbourne today for further assessment. While scans have cleared him of any major injury they did reveal a minor stress reaction in his lumbar spine.

“Kane will now enter a period of rehabilitation and his return to the field will be determined by the speed of his recovery.”
