“I’m bowling great” – Josh Hazlewood ahead of the Ashes’ fourth Test
Australia paceman Josh Hazlewood is confident of continuing good bowling in the next two tests of the 2019 Ashes after his remarkable return in the Test Cricket since January.
“It surely feels like I’m bowling great,” the 28-year old pacer said. “The body’s truly good. I felt significantly greater at Headingley than Lord’s, simply getting those miles into the legs in that first Test (back). I can’t perceive any reason why not except if we bowl a heap of overs in the following game however body’s inclination great and glad to play both if conceivable.”
Hazlewood played his last Test back in seven months ago when he ruled out for back injury against India. He was also dropped for the first match of the Ashes but then recalled for the second match. He proved his worth after making his place into the team. He took 12 wickets in the last two matches at the strike rate of just 39.4 with his career’s best figure 9/115.
“I believe I’m doing whatever it takes not to do excessively, attempt and be straightforward, not attempt and swing the ball, every so often I do when it gets somewhat older however simply hitting that correct length with the new ball, making them play, not attempt and do excessively, attempt and keep it basic. Evaporate that scoreboard, build pressure with maidens, make him play on the front foot, not attempt and do a lot all in all as a whole group,” the pacer said.
The fourth match of the Ashes will be held at Manchester on Wednesday, 4 September. Australia were close to clinch the all important trophy since 2001 in England but another Ben Stokes heroics kept them far away as the series levels at 1-1 currently.
