“He bowls on hard lengths and is accurate”- Aakash Chopra backs Josh Hazlewood as Australia’s highest wicket-taker

Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra understands many could support Mitchell Starc to top the wicket list for Australia at the T20 World Cup. But he believes Josh Hazlewood has been one of the most improved pacemakers in this format and can top the bowling charts for the hosts.

Chopra feels that the lengths that Hazlewood bowls have make it difficult for batsmen to hit over the line, and that often helps him get wickets. He also thinks that the lanky pacer might not pick wickets in a cluster but can enter any game with a few chips.

On his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra has this to say about Hazlewood:

“People could say that Starc will get the most wickets for Australia. But I think it will be Hazlewood. He throws at hard lengths and is accurate even when hitters attack him. On his day, Starc will take four wickets. But Hazlewood can pick 2-3 wickets consistently in any game.”

Aakash Chopra claimed that one of the main reasons Australia stands out from the rest is their ability to move up in major tournaments. The hosts already have a strong batting and bowling line-up and some excellent outfield players too.

However, Chopra believes Australia’s greatest strength is her big-match temperament. To this end he stated:

“Although Cummins isn’t exactly a T20 star, he bowls well in these conditions. They also have many other bowling options at Zampa, Agar, Marsh, Maxwell and Stoinis. Her hitting is also a strength because now even Aaron Finch has found some form. They were also always a rifle unit. They just know how to win world championships, which is another strength.”
