Brisbane, Jan 8: Australia’s fast bowler Josh Hazlewood will be rested from the first match of the upcoming One-Day Intertiol (ODI) series against Pakistan here on Friday.

Explaining the decision, Australia’s Head Coach Darren Lehmann said in a release on Sunday: “Josh has got through a heavy workload during the home summer so far and in the past two months he has sent down almost 300 overs across two Test series against South Africa and Pakistan, as well as three ODIs against New Zealand.”

“He’s not injured but we have decided to give him a week to freshen up at home and he will link up with the ODI squad in Melbourne ahead of the second match of the series, although if one of our other fast bowlers picks up an injury in the run-up to Friday’s first game at The Gabba, then he could be called up to slot in.” IANS
