During the camping in Darwin on Sunday Josh Hazlewood said, “There’s only going to be a couple of quicks in the team and a few spinners (but) as long as we’re working together, I think we’ll be okay.”
“I see myself as a leader amongst the group now. The team has changed a lot since I first came in, and I’ve gone from a junior player to a senior player, so I try to take that extra initiative to lead from the front,” he said.
Left arm seamer Mitchell Starc suffered a stress fracture in his foot during the tour of India and then missed the third and fourth Test.
On the other end, James Pattinson was suffering from inflammation around the back area where he had suffered a stress fracture earlier.
“They’re a world-class team,” Hazlewood said. “They had some pretty good showings in that Champion’s Trophy tournament and their test cricket at home has been pretty good. We can’t take them lightly, that’s for sure.”
The first Test between host Bangladesh and visiting Australia will start from August 27th in Mirpur before the second and last Test which is scheduled to take place in Chittagong from September 4.
