Cricket Australia: Josh Hazlewood Ruled Out Of Upcoming Sri Lanka Test Series

Josh Hazlewood

Australia has called up the uncapped Jhye Richardson as Josh Hazlewood’s substitution, after the bowler was ruled out of the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka.

When Virat Kohli’s men turned into the first from their nation to ever win a series against Australia, it was Josh Hazlewood who bowled the largest a larger number of overs than any other Aussie seamer in the ongoing Tests against India.

Be that as it may, having revealed issues with his back, Hazlewood would not be included in both of the two five-day matches against Sri Lanka.

The principal Test starts in Brisbane one week from now and the 22-year-old Richardson, who was engaged with the one-day international arrangement with India, has been added to the squad.

Team Physio David Beakley said:Β β€œJosh has reported some back soreness over the last few days and scans have revealed a very early stage stress fracture in the same lower back area as his previous injury from last summer”

He further stated: β€œHe will now begin a rehabilitation program and we are confident he will be available for selection ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup in the UK later this year.”
