Josh Hazlewood has been ruled out of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Cup for Australia. The pacer will miss the balance of the series due to his inability to recuperate from injury. Because he was undergoing rehabilitation for an Achilles injury, he missed the first two Tests of the series.
Australia coach Andrew McDonald stated on cricket.com.au that Hazlewood is returning home to continue his recuperation from Achilles tendinitis. In January, the injury was incurred during the third Test against South Africa in Sydney. In recent weeks, he has increased his bowling workout intensity. But, he has been unable to recuperate from his injury and has decided to continue his recuperation at home in Sydney.
In the first Test against India in Nagpur, Hazlewood was replaced by Scott Boland, and India won by an innings and 132 runs. The right-handed fast bowler who debuted in Test cricket in 2014 has appeared in 59 matches for Australia. He played his first Test match at the Brisbane Cricket Stadium against India. He took five wickets in the very first innings.
The Australian captain, Pat Cummins, leaves for Sydney due to family obligations.
Pat Cummins is also returning home owing to grave health concerns within his family. The fast bowler is expected to return to India in time to participate in the final two Tests. Mitchell Starc and all-rounder Cameron Green have returned from injury, which is good news for the visitors. Both are likely to participate in the third Test beginning March 1 in Indore.
With a catastrophic defeat in the second Test, Australia’s chances of winning a Test series in India for the first time in 19 years were dashed. Rohit Sharma and co. have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series after dominating both Tests. In addition to winning both Tests, the hosts retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. India now aims for a clean sweep of the visitors in order to qualify for the World Test Championship Final. Indore and Ahmedabad are scheduled to host the last two Tests.
