Pace bowler Jhye Richardson was added on Wednesday to the Australia ODI squad for the three-match series in South Africa beginning on Saturday.

Richardson dislocated his shoulder ahead of last year’s World Cup in England but was recalled for the T20I series against South Africa which ends Thursday and will remain with the team for the one-dayers.
