Josh Reginald Hazlewood (born 8 January 1991 in Tamworth, New South Wales) is an international Australian cricketer who plays for New South Wales and Australia. He is known for his accuracy, much to that of Glenn McGrath.[3]

Early career[edit]

He began his career young, making his state debut at the age of 17 at the Sydney Cricket Ground against the touring New Zealand side in November 2008. He is the youngest fast bowler to represent New South Wales, and when he made his One Day International debut on 22 June 2010 he was the youngest player to debut for Australia.[4]

A right arm fast bowler, he has also played for Australia Under-19s and was the youngest member of Australia's squad for the 2008 Under-19 World Cup.

International career[edit]

He bowled 7 overs on his One Day International debut and picked up one wicket for 41 runs. He made his T20I debut vs West Indies on 13 February 2013 and picked up 1-36 in 4 overs. He picked career best figures 4-30 in a T20 vs England.

He made his Test match debut for Australia against India at the Brisbane Cricket Ground on 17 December 2014. He took 5 wickets in the first innings, conceding 68 runs.[5] He was a part of the Australian squad for the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup and played a part in their triumph, picking up 4 wickets against Pakistan in the quarter-finals.

In November 2015, Hazlewood became the first player to achieve the Player of the match award in a day-night Test match ever. In this match against New Zealand, he took the first ever wicket in day-night Test by lbw Martin Guptill.[6] He also took the first five-wicket haul in a day-night Test cricket history with the figures of 6 for 70,[7] en route to reaching 50 career wickets in just his 12th Test, faster than Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Mitchell Johnson.

In January 2017, Hazlewood recorded an unusual innings in the first ODI against New Zealand. He had a 26-minute long 54 run tenth wicket partnership with Marcus Stoinis without Hazlewood facing a single ball.[8] Hazlewood was run out at a non-striker's end with Australia being just 7 runs short of a win and became the first player to be dismissed for a diamond duck in a partnership of over fifty runs.[9] This was Hazlewood's first ODI dismissal, setting the record for the most ODI matches played without being dismissed (33), a record he had overtaken in December 2016 after his 28th ODI.[10]
