Richardson succeeded Ray Jennings as South Africa's number one 'keeper in 1986 for their Unofficial "Test" matches. For the first seven years after South Africa returned from isolation, Richardson was a permanent fixture as wicket-keeper, his trademark sun hat and brown gloves were very recognisable. He was also a gritty batsman scoring a maiden and only Test century (109) against New Zealand at Cape Town in 1994–95.
In June 2012, Richardson was appointed as the new chief executive officer of the ICC. Using his influence he ensured that pitch preparation of neutral venues were in the ICC's hands.
