Richardson last played T20 for Australia on Australia Day 2016 against India and the spearhead continues to impress selectors with his threatening ability with the white ball.

The 26-year-old recently played in Australia's intra-squad match in Darwin for the David Warner XI, bowling tidily with figures of 1-4 off three overs, and 1-20 off six.

 

Head and Zampa were also named in the T20 squad.

The Qantas Tour of India will take place between 17 September and 13 October.
