Fast bowling is all about aggression and Australia speedster Jhye Richardson has proved it once again. It does not matter whether they are bowling to the opposition or their own teammates, the fast-bowlers really love to go all out when they have the ball in their hands. Who can forget the incident that happened in this year’s World Cup when Jasprit Bumrah injured Vijay Shankar in the nets with a vicious yorker. Shankar was eventually ruled out of the competition.
Well, the fast bowler’s spirit was in abundance when Jhye Richardson was bowling at his Australia teammate Glenn Maxwell in the ongoing Marsh One-Day Cup. Victoria were taking on Western Australia at the WACA when the incident took place. In the 21st over of Victoria’s innings, Maxwell was up against Richardson.
Richardson would have dismissed Maxwell on the very first ball but Nathan Coulter-Nile missed the catch. Maxwell then rubbed more salt on the pacer’s wound by dispatching him for three consecutive sixes. Furious with the turn of events, Richardson bowled a vicious bouncer which Maxwell happily let go past him.
Richardson was not done yet and was seen saying something to the hard-hitting Victoria batsman. Maxwell, however, just smiled and started talking to his partner as Richardson walked away with rage and anger.
Here is a clip of that incident:

Western Australia thrash Victoria
Riding on a stunning century from allrounder Marcus Stoinis, Western Australia thrashed Victoria by 125 runs. Glenn Maxwell did score a fine fifty but it was not enough for Victoria to cross the finish line. Batting first, Western Australia posted a mammoth total of 386 for 8. Stoinis was the star of the show with the bat.
Despite arriving at the crease in the 33rd over, Stoinis fired on all cylinders as he reached his ton with a six off the last ball of the innings to reach 101 off just 58 balls. His stunning knock contained seven sixes, including four off a 28-run Scott Boland over. In reply, Victoria were all out for 261 in 39.2 overs. Apart from Maxwell, Nic Maddinson scored a fifty too.
