New Delhi: Australia’s team was recently on a tour of India. Here the team played a four-match Test series before the ODI series. During that time the Australian bowlers faced many batsmen, but out of the team bowler Josh Hazlewood has named a batsman who is very difficult to dismiss. Josh Hazlewood believes that the price that Cheteshwar Pujara puts on his wickets makes him one of the toughest batsmen to bowl to. Hazlewood said that he felt a thrill after getting dismissed.
Aussie bowlers love to hate Pujara
Pujara recently completed a Test century during the Border-Gavaskar series. Although he could not score big in the four matches, he still made important contributions. Pujara has over 7,000 Test runs in 102 matches, including 19 hundreds and 35 half-centuries. Whereas Hazlewood is struggling with injury. Because of this, he was sidelined during the Test series against India. He said that Pujara is someone Australian bowlers love to hate.
Big thrill to get Pujara out
Hazlewood said on the RCB podcast on Tuesday – It is a big thrill for the bowlers to dismiss Pujara. I think when you get his wicket, it means you have got everything. It means you have worked very hard. Hazlewood was the pacer for RCB during IPL 2022, taking 20 wickets.
he is a great player
Hazlewood said that he has had his tussles with the Indian legend, but he is a great player. Hazlewood said – I am having a fight with him in Australia. He’s someone Australians love to hate but he’s a fantastic player and I think that’s part of Test cricket. When you get him out, you feel you have earned it. Hazlewood is doubtful to play in IPL 2023 due to injury.
