Three pacers more than enough for India tour: Hazlewood

Melbourne [Australia], Jan. 18 : Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood believes three pacers would be more than enough for the upcoming four-match Test series in India.

Cricket Australia on Sunday named a spin-heavy 16-man squad with four specialist slow bowlers in it for the Test series against the number one Test side in February-March.

"I think three's plenty for a tour of India. There hasn't been many quicks go there and be successful," quoted Hazlewood as saying.

"I think we can take something out of the way Starcy (Mitchell Starc) bowled in Sri Lanka on similar wickets."

"He sort of takes the pitch out of the equation sometimes with how full and fast he bowls," he added.

Hazlewood claims England doesn't yet know how to 'beat' Australia

Sydney, Feb 04 - Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has claimed that England don't quite know how to beat them yet, especially in Australia, following Eoin Morgan's team's recent loss in the tri-series final.

Hazlewood pointed to Morgan's stumps being skittled by Australian pace spearhead Michael Johnson in the tri-series final as the clearest illustration that England are sitting ducks for the World Cup kick-off on February 14.

Walking out to bat after watching his opener Moeen Ali being removed by Johnson's express delivery, Morgan was too rattled to even offer a shot and was gone first ball, reported.
