Michael Neser replaces Hazlewood for Adelaide Test

General soreness has ruled Hazlewood out of the Pink-ball clash

After skipper Pat Cummins was ruled out of the second Test, Australia have been dealt with another blow, with general soreness ruling out new-ball bowler, Josh Hazlewood. Not only has Hazlewood been instrumental with the new ball but also has been one of the go-to-bowlers in this Australian setup in the longest format. 

However, his replacement is Michael Neser – a trusted bowler – in the Australian domestic circuit, with previous experience of playing with the pink ball. Last year, in a similar situation, ahead of the Pink Ball Test, Australia handed debut to Neser, rewarding him for his endless exploits in the domestic arena. 

"Unfortunately Hazlewood was pulled out last night. I'm not entirely sure of his availability for South Africa. But Neser bowled really well last year so we're thrilled to have him back," Australian captain Steve Smith said at the toss, ahead of the day-night encounter in Adelaide. 

Scott Boland, Neser, Cameron Green and Mitchell Starc will form the pace quartet, for the second Test against West Indies.
