Hazlewood Fully Prepared for Favoured English Conditions

Hazlewood in Australia

Having declared himself ready to roll for Friday’s Ashes opener at Edgbaston, Josh Hazlewood admits he would be disappointed not to make Australia’s starting XI but perhaps not as miffed as he was when overlooked for the corresponding Test four years ago.

Hazlewood was a late withdrawal from Australia’s squad for their successful tilt at the World Test Championship title last week, with selectors taking a conservative approach to his recovery from a recent side injury and instead preferring fellow seamer Michael Neser.

But the 32-year-old bowled a lengthy spell at top pace on day five at The Oval while his teammates were celebrating their win over India, and will undergo another strenuous session at Edgbaston later today as Australia hone their plans for the initial skirmish against England.
