The Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has opted to pulled out his name from the upcoming season of Indian Premier League. He is part of the Chennai Super Kings franchise.
“It’s been a long 10 months in bubbles and quarantine at different times, so I decided to have a rest from cricket and spend some time at home and in Australia in the next two months,” Hazlewood told cricket.com.au.
“We’ve got a big winter ahead too. The West Indies is going to be a long tour, with Bangladesh (T20 tour) potentially thrown on the end of that.”
“Then potentially the T20 World Cup leading into the Ashes, so it’s a big 12 months and I want to give myself the best chance to be mentally and physically ready for that. That’s the decision I’ve made, and it sits pretty well with me,” he added.
