Josh Hazlewood ruled out of the second Test against Bangladesh

Australia premier bowler Josh Hazlewood has sustained a side strain during the first Test against Bangladesh at Mirpur. The pace bowler has been ruled out of the remainder of the series and will also skip one day series against India in order to get fully fit for Ashes Series against England to be played in Australia this year.

Josh Hazlewood sustained the blow on the third day of the first Test which means he is immediately ruled out of the coming fixtures for Australia. Hazlewood looked in pain after only bowling his second over of the day. Ashton Agar came in his place to finish the over. Australian new-ball partner Pat Cummins said that Hazlewood is top-class bowler and will be hard to replace as he is famous for relentless accuracy to land the ball in right areas. He has been regular fixture in the side and has not missed a game since last three years.

Australia will also tour India for a five-match one day series that starts on 17th September followed by three T20 internationals.
