T20 World Cup: The T20 World Cup, which is going to start from 16 October, is going to be organized in Australia. Being the home ground, World Cup winner Australia has made preparations to take advantage. Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood believes that the hosts will benefit from big boundaries and fast pitches in Australia.
Hazlewood, who was part of the team that won the Australian title for the first time in 2021, will be part of the team again. Aaron Finch-led Australian team will start their campaign against New Zealand on 22 October. The two teams met in the final last year.
Australia can get the advantage of big boundaries
Josh Hazlewood said, "It was going to be a great test to see where we are. We have seen this in the series against India as well. Many players got a chance to bowl the shortest boundaries against the best hitters in the game."
he added, "We are always looking to do better, because what areas do you want at certain times, what ball are you bowling, how are you sequencing it. Its all up to you."
cricket.com.au quoted Hazlewood as saying, "T20 in Australia is better for bowlers in many ways. The grounds are big, the pace of the wickets can be a bit high and you can use those big boundaries to your advantage."
