Josh Hazlewood Ruled Out of World Test Championship Final, How This will impact Australia?

world test championship

There is no doubt about the fact that Josh Hazlewood is certainly one of the best bowlers Australia is currently having. He would have certainly been an asset for the Australian team in the finals of the World Test Championship. In the IPL he only played a total of three matches for the RCB, and after that due to the injury, he was not able to make the contribution. No doubt, it is really tough for the fans to accept the fact that Josh Hazlewood has been ruled out of the WTC final. 

Impact of Josh Hazlewood’s Injury:

The bowling stats of Josh Hazlewood is certainly one of the best, in terms of bowling average. He is having the experience of 57 test matches. That would have been a handy experience for the Australian team. This will also raise the alarm for the Australian team, should the players participate in the IPL before an important test series. 

Pressure on the other bowlers

This is certainly going to put a lot of pressure on the other bowlers because an experienced bowler has been injured. Josh Hazlewood was having the ability to swing the bowl both ways. No doubt, that the new bowler would need to fill in the big shoes of Josh Hazlewood. 

Replacement of Hazlewood

Scott Boland is going to replace Hazlewood in the final of the WTC. In a short career of 6 test matches, Hazlewood has given a brilliant performance. His bowling average is 12.20. This is certainly a brilliant bowling average for a bowler who is going to replace an experienced bowler. It’ll be important for him to provide early wickets to the team. 

So, this is the major change in the squad of the Australian team. Let’s see how much effect this change is going to bring in the result of the match.
