Australia Loves To Hate This India Star, Josh Hazlewood confirms

Cheteshwar Pujara is one of the hardest hitters to bowl to, according to Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood, who also noted that there is a “thrill” one experiences after getting him out. Pujara recently reached 100 Test appearances during the Border-Gavaskar series, and even though he didn’t have many big scores to make up for it in the four games, he still made some significant contributions. The 35-year-old has played in 102 Test matches and scored more than 7,000 runs, including 19 hundreds and 35 half-tons.

Pujara is someone Australians “love to hate,” according to Hazlewood, who is currently recovering from a tendon injury that kept him out of the Test series against India.

“The thrill for the bowlers is greater.” (to dismiss Pujara). On the RCB podcast on Tuesday, Hazlewood said, “I think when you do end up getting his wicket, it means you have earned it.

“It signifies you’ve put in a lot of hard effort. Whether it is the fifth ball he (Pujara) faces… you’ve already bowled to him in the previous Test matches, you’ve earned that respect and you’ve earned that wicket,” added Hazlewood, who was RCB’s pace spearhead during IPL 2022, taking 20 wickets.

Hazlewood stated that he had some terrific tussles with the Indian stalwart, adding that he was a fantastic player.

“He’s someone I’ve had some great tussles over the years, and, in particular, in Australia. Despite the fact that Australians despise him, he is a terrific player, and I suppose it is just a part of Test cricket. Hazlewood, whose participation in the IPL 2023 may be in doubt due to the tendon injury, said when you do get him out, “You’ve earned it.
