Australia vs South Africa Live: Josh Hazlewood In Australia Playing XI For Boxing-Day Test? Pacer Delivers Huge Update. Josh Hazlewood, a star right-arm bowler for the Australia National Cricket Team, is 31 years old. He hopes to be available for selection for the series’ second test against South Africa National Cricket Team, which will start on December 26.
Due to “general pain,” Josh Hazlewood was unable to play in the second Test of the two-match series against the West Indies. However, subsequent testing revealed a minor left-side strain. Additionally, he was unable to play in Brisbane for the opening Test of the series against South Africa because of a side injury.
Josh Hazlewood has stated that the Sunday net session improved his chances of being available for selection for the Boxing Day Test. He added that everything was proceeding according to schedule.
“[My chances are] much better after today’s session. Went very much according to plan and pushed upwards of 90% for a couple of deliveries. It’s all about the next three or four sessions before that [session on December] 24th and I can really tick it off. Everything is feeling really nice and I’m not noticing the side at all so fingers crossed,” Hazlewood told Channel Seven, as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
“I had a little bowl on Friday back in Sydney and started up off a few steps and pushed back to a half-run on Friday and today went really well. I pushed back to pretty much full run-up and around 85-90% intensity. Everything is ticking along nicely and going according to plan.”

“It’s been a bit of a frustrating period. Especially red ball. White ball has been going great. Maybe that’s the cost of playing all three formats and putting all your energy into every game you play. You don’t have that time to build your strength up or workloads up and get ready for a Test match. I might have to look at that and find a way around it somehow.”
Australia and South Africa will play a test match on Boxing Day at the venerable Melbourne Cricket Ground.
