Derbyshire move for Stanlake

18th May 2019, 20:03 by Neil Foster

Derbyshire have replaced Kane Richardson with fellow paceman Billy Stanlake for this summer's T20 Blast.

Richardson was on board for the 20-over competition but opted to pull out of his deal after being called up to the Australia World Cup squad.

Derbyshire officials admitted they had a few players in mind and have turned to Richardson's compatriot to fill the void.

Stanlake has international experience, having played seven one-day internationals and 17 T20 internationals since his debut back in 2017.

Derbyshire boss Dave Houghton admits that Richardson will be missed but has backed his replacement to do the business.

"Billy is an excellent white-ball bowler and has the qualities to trouble batsmen in this format," he said. "He's someone we've kept an eye on and we've been impressed by what we've seen.

"We were disappointed to lose Kane, but I believe we have found a replacement who will not only complement our side, but bring in new skills to keep taking us forward."
