Australia's Josh Hazlewood ruled out of second Ashes Test
Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has been ruled out of the second Ashes Test against England at Adelaide, which begins on Thursday.
Hazlewood, who is third in the International Cricket Council’s Test bowling rankings, has a rib injury.
He did not bowl for much of England’s second innings in Australia’s first-Test victory in Brisbane.
“Hazlewood returned to Sydney for further assessment and rehabilitation,” Cricket Australia said.
“A decision on his fitness for the Boxing Day Test will be made in due course.”
No announcement has been made on his replacement for the Adelaide Test yet.
