Josh Hazlewood dismissed Pakistan’s premier batsman Babar Azam in the 1st innings of the 1st Test match while he pursued a flamboyant drive away from his body.
Hazlewood has proved to be a nightmare for the right-handed batsman as he has dismissed him 5 times in 36 balls, he delivered to him.
Hazlewood talked about Babar’s wicket in the post-day press conference. “Babar is coming off the T20I format and we know he is a stroke-maker. He likes to build pressure on the bowlers so it is very helpful if we get him out early”, he added.
Hazlewood has been consistently performing for Australia in the recent past. His consistent lines and lengths in Test cricket have created problems for even the best in the business. Babar also fell prey to Hazlewood’s immaculate consistency. Babar also struggled to counter him when Pakistan last toured Australia.
