Hazlewood ruled out of Chittagong Test
Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has been ruled out of the Chittagong Test match against Bangladesh, starting on Monday, due to injury. The tall right-arm pacer bowled only seven balls on day two and felt discomfort. He eventually left the field and did not return in the entire second innings of Bangladesh. Fellow Australian paceman Pat Cummins confirmed the news during the post-match press conference on Tuesday. “He’s going to be really hard to replace. He’s played all but one of the last 30 Tests. He said it is going to be pretty hard sitting at home watching, he hasn’t done that for three or four years. So he’s a big member around the group. I am going to miss having dinner with him every night,” Cummins told the media in Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. “But we have got Jackson Bird waiting in the wings which is great. He’s been bowling beautifully. Again, someone who has been around the team a long time and been bowling really well. Had some great performances for Australia in the past as well. It’s not good to miss Joshy, but we’re lucky we have such a strong squad over here,” he said. However, Hazlewood will bat if needed during their chase of 265, set by Bangladesh. "Definitely, it’s a pretty common injury for quick bowlers. Unfortunately both of us quick bowlers have had it and it’s a pretty standard recovery. Hopefully he’ll be right. He’s obviously not playing the one-dayers (in India) but he’ll be right for the first (Sheffield) Shield game. He’s going to go home and get that right. Obviously really disappointed to miss this and the India series. But he’s confident," added Cummins. Australia have Bird as the third seamer and all-rounder Hilton Catteright in the squad. But Bird is likely to get the nod for the second and final Test.
