Australia pace bowler Josh Hazlewood is doubtful for the second Test against England with a side strain and has returned home, Cricket Australia said on Sunday.

Should he miss the game which starts on Thursday, Jhye Richardson is expected to take his place in the team.

Captain Pat Cummins said after the match that Hazlewood’s injury was nothing too serious.

According to local media reports, opener David Warner also returned home with bruised ribs sustained during his knock of 94 in the first innings at the Gabba.

Although Cummins was confident the left-hander would be fit for the pink-ball test, the injury could give Usman Khawaja the chance to play his first Test since being dropped during the 2019 Ashes series.
