ICC World Cup Not watching the World Cup – Josh Hazlewood reflects pain on being omitted from main tournament

first_imgKane Richardson replaced Jhye Richardson in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.Josh Hazlewood has not played cricket since January 2019.Australia will play England in five Ashes Tests after the World Cup. New Delhi: Josh Hazlewood played a vital role in Australia’s World Cup triumph in 2015. His 4/35 in the quarterfinal in Adelaide against Pakistan was vital in the team’s progression to the last four. In overall ODIs, he has a record of 72 wickets at 25.15. When the Australian squad was selected for the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Hazlewood was left out. Hope arose for Hazlewood when Jhye Richardson dislocated his shoulder in the series against Pakistan in the UAE. However, Australia picked Kane Richardson for the tournament and Hazlewood has admitted that he is not watching the World Cup as it still pains him on his omission.Speaking to Cricket Australia’s official website, Hazlewood said, “I will sit down at night and watch a couple of overs but I’m trying to steer clear of it a little bit. The more you watch something, the more you probably miss it. So I’m just trying to pretend it’s not on, to a degree,” Hazlewood said. Hazlewood was overlooked after being out of action since January with a back injury, as selectors preferred him to focus on getting ready for the Ashes Test series in England, which begins in August. Hazlewood is currently in camp at Brisbane with the Australia A squads — along with the likes of Peter Handscomb, Travis Head and Marcus Harris — ahead of their departure for England on Friday for a seven-week tour.”I know I can do a great job when I’m physically pretty fresh and that’s how I’m going to enter this Ashes, so I’m looking forward to it. I’ve done as much as I can in the nets. It takes that time out in the middle now to get that extra couple of per cent up to one hundred,” the 27-year-old remarked.Hazlewood is set to make his return in the one-day format for Australia A from June 20, before three red-ball fixtures starting on July 7. Those matches culminate in an ‘Australia v Australia A’ four-day fixture in Hampshire, which will serve as a final selection trial for the Ashes squad. Immediately after the World Cup, Australia will play England in five Ashes Tests which will be the first series in the new ICC Test Championships. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Steeplechase champion Jebet handed four-year ban for doping violation

first_img(REUTERS) – Kenyan-born Bahraini runner Ruth Jebet has been handed a four-year ban after she was found guilty of testing positive for the banned blood booster r-EPO (recombinant erythropoietin), the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) said yesterday.Jebet, the 2016 Olympic 3000m steeplechase champion, was suspended in February 2018 after she failed an out-of-competition test.“The panel … imposes a period of ineligibility of four years upon the athlete,” the AIU said in a statement.“The period of provisional suspension imposed on the athlete from February 4, 2018 until the date of the Tribunal Award shall be credited against the total period of ineligibility.”Jebet told the AIU in March 2018 that she had never taken the substance intentionally and the matter was referred to the disciplinary tribunal.The AIU, however, was of the opinion that the violation was committed intentionally and said she took one-and-a-half years to admit to the offence while rejecting numerous invitations to do so earlier.The 23-year-old admitted to the presence of r-EPO in her sample and its use in October last year and waived her right to the analysis of the B sample as she could not afford the costs.The AIU also ordered the disqualification of all her results between December 1, 2017 and February 4, 2018 along with the forfeiture of medals, points, prize and appearance money.last_img read more
