The son of Viv Richards, Richards was born in England and educated at Cheltenham College in Gloucestershire. He has had a stint with Middlesex County Cricket Club and also played for Oxford UCCE and the Gloucestershire 2nd XI. Richards has also represented Antigua and Barbuda, hitting 319 for them in a game against the US Virgin Islands in 2003. The game however was not a first-class fixture and in 11 matches for various sides he is yet to pass 50. In June 2007 he accused Middlesex of failing to help him develop.
