Adelaide, Dec 13 : Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood on Monday was ruled out of the second Ashes Test, which is scheduled between December 16-20 at the Adelaide Oval.
The 30-year-old will miss the match due to a side injury which he picked up during Australia’s nine-wicket win in the first Test against England in Brisbane.
Hazlewood returned to Sydney on Sunday afternoon for further assessment and rehabilitation, with a decision on his fitness for the Boxing Day Test to be made in due course.
Australia’s 14-man squad, which includes fast bowlers Michael Neser and Jhye Richardson and leg spinner Mitchell Swepson, has left for Adelaide.
The selectors will choose a squad for the Melbourne and Sydney Tests following the Adelaide match.
