Australian cricket star Josh Hazlewood is feeling optimistic ahead of the much-anticipated return of the Boxing Day Test next week. With the coronavirus pandemic causing havoc around the world, the cricket star was asked if he was confident about the Test returning and provided a reassuring response.
In a statement that should be encouraging to cricket fans, Hazlewood said, “Everything is ticking along nicely. It would be a real shame to miss out on the Boxing Day Test after waiting for so long.” The sentiment was echoed by other cricket stars who are equally excited about the return of the event.
Hazlewood was cautious about the plans for an energy-sapping five-day event, though, acknowledging the difficulty of executing such a mammoth task in the midst of a global pandemic.
“It’s certainly not going to be easy, and I’m sure there will be a few bumps in the road to overcome, but as long as everyone works together, I’m confident we can pull it off”.
He was also asked about the much-publicised relative inexperience of the Australian side, noting that while the side may lack experience in comparison to previous years, they had a lot of potential. Hazlewood said, “We’ve got some real quality players right through the squad, and I am extremely confident that we can put up a good show and give the fans something to cheer about.”
All eyes will be on the Australian team next week with the world watching to see if the Boxing Day Test returns; fingers crossed that Hazlewood and his team are able to prove that everything really is ticking along nicely.
