Hazlewood has been out of feat since January, missing the squad’s home Tests against Sri Lanka and the limited-overs international tours of India and the UAE, where they are presently playing Pakistan. Hazlewood does not think he will be fit when Aussies begins their training camp in May, or when they play New Zealand in ODI as part of their CWC 2019 preparation, but he purposes to be matching ready for the official warm-ups.

“When the squad gets announced on April 23 I’ll probably be 65-70 per cent fit, and I have still got a good four or five weeks from that date to get ready to play ODI cricket,” Hazlewood said on the Unplayable Podcast. “We head up to Brisbane early May there are a couple of games against New Zealand I believe. I don’t think I’ll be fit for those, but for the one-day warm-up games in England, I think I will be right. Acerbic it a little bit closes, I guess, but pretty confident.”

On the pastimes with Hazlewood has been his bowling companion Starc, who has been dealing with pectoral muscle damage. Rendering to Hazlewood and Starc, too, is on the way to recovery:

“He aspects fine; he started bowling as well this week. He is coming off not as big a halt as me, so won’t take him long to get up and running.”

According to reports, Starc’s expected reappearance is in May. And while there are anxieties that a hasty comeback might set the duo back in a big term, featuring the Cricket World Cup, followed by the Ashes, Pat Cummins, the other key fellow of the fast bowlers’ group, maintained that his team-mates were keen to be a part of both set-ups.

“They’ve both been smashing themselves in the gym and running back home in Sydney. They’re doing everything they can to be right for the World Cup,” he said.

Cummins himself was relaxed for the first two ODIs against Pakistan, and he felt handling workloads would be vital in the coming months.

“It’s fairly a long tour of England and Wales, so probably managing in between games and how you train is important, just trying to give yourself every chance to play,” he said.

“The Cricket World Cup is really busy, but it’s about two matches a week. Confidently, we can manage.”
