Josh was speaking after day two of the three-day tour match for the Australians against Worcestershire at Worcester. He took 3-34 as the home side made 9-201 declared, conceding a first innings lead of 65, before the Australians extended that advantage up to the close of play, finishing the day on 1-92, an overall lead of 157.

 Cricket, and Australia’s selectors are set for another pleasant headache ahead of the second Ashes Test at Lord’s as Josh Hazlewood produced an eye-catching performance.

The New South Wales fast bowler took 3-34 in the tour match against Worcestershire and afterwards…

 Said he was happy with the way he bowled.

 Said he understood why he missed out on selection for the first Test win at Edgbaston.

 Said he would love the chance to play again at the place known as The Home of Cricket.

 Said the Australia squad has fast bowlers for all conditions it might encounter.

The next Test in Australia’s five-match series on the Qantas Tour of the UK is at Lord’s, starting next Wednesday, with further matches at Headingley, Old Trafford and The Oval. Australia holds the Ashes after a 4-0 series win at home in the summer of 2017-18. It also leads the 2019 series 1-0 after a 251-run win in the opening Test at Edgbaston.
