Australia’s Josh Hazlewood ruled out of World Test Championship final

News Patiala: Australia’s fast bowler Josh Hazelwood has been ruled out of the World Test Championship final against India due to a heel injury. Hazlewood, who was one of Australia’s key bowlers in the tournament, was injured during the Indian Premier League (IPL) in May. He had returned to the field after recovering from the injury, but he was not fully fit and was ruled out of the final.


Hazlewood’s injury is a major blow to Australia’s chances of winning the final. He is a proven performer in Test cricket and his absence will be felt by the Australian bowlers. Australia will now have to rely on their other bowlers, such as Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, and Nathan Lyon, to take wickets in the final.


The World Test Championship final will be played from June 18-22 at the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. India and Australia are both unbeaten in the tournament and the final is expected to be a close contest.

* Hazelwood injured his heel during the IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders on May 1.
