Scorchers fast bowler Jhye Richardson has returned home in high spirits and says he’s hopeful he’ll recover in time for the World Cup in May.

The 22-year-old underwent scans this week after being ruled out of the remainder of the ODI series in the UAE with a shoulder injury.

Scans returned a best case scenario for the right arm quick.

"Everyone in the Australian camp is hopeful, I'm hopeful and in high spirits," He said.

"I'm not ruling out the world cup at this stage, that's definitely not an option.

"It's all about getting the shoulder right at this stage.

"JL (Justin Langer) said he's pleased with how I've been going about my business, I was really satisfied with how I played in India and going into the Pakistan series as well I was happy with the way I was playing.

"The shoulder injury is unfortunate, but these things do happen and I'm eager to bounce back quickly."
