A strong pacer from the Australian Cricket team made a big statement about the ball-tampering controversy in South Africa this year, according to him, the ball has tampered with only his team’s pressure to win each match.
During the Test series against South Africa, Australian player Cameron Bancroft was found to be bowling ball tampering. Later, team captain Steve Smith admitted that he had already known about this. The investigation revealed that David Warner was its mastermind and he only gave advice. After this, Warner and Smith were banned for 1-1 years, while a 9-month ban was imposed on Bancroft.
Josh Hazlewood was also part of the team on that tour and he recently said in a conversation with News Corp: “The tour of South Africa is always bigger than ever. There is tremendous pressure on the team in big tours and due to this Teams are ready to do anything to win. “
Apart from this, Hedgelwood, talking about former team captain Steve Smith, said that he is a great player and he is one of the finest batsmen of the current time. However, he did not get the pressure of captaincy.
Australia’s team is currently on a tour of England, where the team is currently lagging 0-2 in the five-match ODI series. Josh Hazlewood was supposed to be part of this tour but due to injury, he had to withdraw his name from this series.
Australia’s team would have been hoping that Australia’s team could prove their critics wrong after the under-fire of Justin Langer, the new coach again.
