The Ashes: Josh Hazlewood shocked by second Test defeat to Australia | Cricket News


Josh Hazlewood did not play for Australia in Adelaide

Bowler Josh Hazlewood has been ruled out of Australia’s second Ashes Test due to injury.

The 30-year-old suffered side-pressure in Australia’s nine – wicket win over The Cubs, where the hosts advanced 1-0 in the series, with Hazelwood using just 14 of 103 overs in England’s second round.

Fox Sports reports that Hazlewood returned home from his Aussie squad on Sunday and will not play in the day-night Test in Adelaide from Thursday.

Although Joe Root and David Malone had a great partnership for the third wicket, Hazelwood’s fitness was in question as he did not bowl in the evening session on the 3rd day in Brisbane. “Good”.

He returned to bowl six overs the next morning, finishing 1-32, admitting that Captain Pat Cummins was a “bit sore” captain after Australia won.

“Importantly, we don’t want to endanger him for the whole series, so we’ll take our time,” Cummins said of Hazelwood’s fitness. “This is a series of five trials, which is important to us. We did not want to get it out of the water on the third day.”

After a five-wicket win for Australia A against the England Lions, Michael Nesser made his Australian debut, although former Aussie captain Ricky Ponting backed Jay Richardson in the second Test.

“Richardson was very close to playing in this Test instead of Starc,” Pointing said. “He’s in great shape. When the ball does not swing, I keep it in front of Nesser when it comes to the full bowling package.

“Nesser apparently thrives on the swing and sewing conditions he receives at Kappa – and could get it at some point in Adelaide – but I still think Richardson will get approval.”
