The Australian cricket team suffered a setback during the ongoing Test series against Bangladesh after seamer Josh Hazelwood was ruled out for the series due to a side strain. Hazlewood’s injury leaves Australia with three of their pacemen sidelined less than three months before the Ashes series against England.
Fellow teammate Pat Cummins expressed disappointment and said, “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, but we have got Jackson Bird waiting in the wings, which is great.”
Meanwhile, cricket Australia is yet to announce his replacement.
