Biography

A country boy from Tamworth, Josh Hazlewood made his international debut followed in 2010, aged 19, when he took on England in an ODI in Southampton, becoming the youngest Australian player at that level. Sometimes compared to his idol Glenn McGrath, Hazlewood was man-of-the-match in the final of Australia’s successful campaign at the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand. A stocky right-armer who gets plenty of bounce out of his 196cm frame, Hazlewood’s best ODI performance came in 2014 when he took 5-31 against South Africa at the WACA in November. Hazlewood is expected to have a bright future for Australia at all levels of the game and this will be his first appearance at an ICC Cricket World Cup.
