He might have grabbed a hat-trick against West Indies in the World T20 warm-up but Australia pacer Josh Hazelwood has hinted it would not be enough to get a place in the playing XI, saying there is lot of competition for every spot and he is just trying to grab every opportunity to perform with both hands.
“They’ve probably got their XI in the back of their mind.
Every time you get an opportunity to perform you try to take it with both hands,” said Hazlewood, who had reduced West Indies to 18/3 with his hat-trick in the fourth over.
“A couple of the quickies who did quite well in South Africa did not bowl in this match. There’s a plenty of competition for every spot,” he said as the Aussie rested James Faulkner and Nathan Coulter-Nile for the warm-up match alongside the big-hitting David Warner.
“The one-day World Cup got a little bit longer but here we have got four games in pretty quick time. I don’t think there would be as much chopping and changing. We will have to choose according to the conditions,” he added.
