An emerging fast bowler who made his one-day debut for Western Australia at the age of 19 in 2015-16, and his Sheffield Shield debut later that season, Jhye Richardson was a surprise selection in Australia's Twenty20 squad to play Sri Lanka in February 2017. His call-up came on the back of a productive BBL season in which he collected 11 wickets, and most notably was Player of the Match in the final, when he ran through the Sydney Sixers middle-order and took 3 for 30 to help Perth Scorchers to the title. At the time of his national call-up he had played only one first-class game.
