The Ashes: Josh Hazlewood ruled out of second Test
Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood will miss the second Ashes Test in Adelaide with a side injury, Cricket Australia said on Monday.
Hazlewood’s injury during the nine-wicket win over England at the Gabba opens the door for Jhye Richardson or Michael Neser to bowl for Australia at Adelaide Oval.
Hazlewood bowled sparingly during England’s second innings of the series-opener and headed home to Sydney for scans on Sunday. The second Test, a day-night, pink-ball affair, starts Thursday.
CA said a decision on Hazlewood’s fitness for the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne would be made after further assessment and rehab.
