Australian fast bowler Jhye Richardson who made his debut in the ongoing five match Ashes series smashed a massive six off Chris Woakes bowling during the second test at the Adelaide Oval.
Australia are in a comfortable position scoring 473 at the loss of 9 wickets and eventually declaring the innings on Day 2. Stand in captain Steve Smith and David Warner failed to score a ton as they fell short of a couple of runs. However, Marnus Labuschagne scored his maiden Ashes hundred. Wicket-keeper batsmen Alex Carey scored his maiden fifty in his 2nd test.
Fast bowler Jhye Richardson was playing his debut test match replacing Pat Cummins. The 25-year-old came on to bat after the dismissal of his fellow teammate Michael Neser who was also making his debut. Richardson decided to go for big hits as Australia needed to score some quick runs towards the end. He mistimed the first delivery which went for a three over long on. However, he connected the second ball which he faced.
In the 150th over of the game off Chris Woakes bowling, Jhye Richardson middled the second ball he faced and sent it deep in the stands. However, Woakes was the one who had the last laugh as he dismissed the 25-year-old in the very next delivery. Richardson managed to score 9 in three deliveries.
