Hazlewood set to miss first two tests of Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023

Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood is set to miss the first Test against India in Nagpur with an Achilles niggle in his left leg and is doubtful for the second Test in Delhi as well. With Mitchell Starcis out due to injury and Cameron Green still recovering from his finger injury and unable to bowl. It will be challenging for the Australian team to cope with the injury concerns.

It is expected that Scott Boland to replace Hazlewood while Hazlewood is out of the team due to injury. Boland has played six Tests so far, taking 28 wickets at an average of 12.21 and strike rate of 33.2 but all of those games have been in Australia.
