Josh Hazlewood: Career stats, Test, ODI, T20I appearances, Ashes record

Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood is an often overlooked key component of an Australia set-up which has enjoyed success across all formats of the international game in recent years.

Hazlewood is blessed with the potent combination of genuine pace when in full cry and a nagging accuracy which makes him a tough customer for batters who like to go on the attack.

The Tamworth native made his Baggy Greens international bow as a teenager when he appeared against England in an ODI at Southampton in June 2010 and it would take him another four years before his Test debut arrived.

Since then he has become a regular in all three formats and helped Australia to success in both the 50 and 20-over World Cups, as well as Ashes triumphs against England.

Hazlewood takes to Test cricket immediately

Having been around the Aussie white-ball set-up for several years, Hazlewood was finally handed a Test debut in December 2014 and he shone straight away as he claimed seven wickets against India at the Gabba, including 5-68 in the first innings.

He has since gone on to take five wickets in an innings on a further 11 occasions, although he has yet to complete a 10-wicket haul, with his best match figures the 9-79 he claimed against West Indies at the Adelaide Oval in January 2024.

His best innings figures are the 6-67 he took against India at Bengaluru in March 2017, in a match in which the Aussies were skittled for 112 in their second innings to lose by 75 runs.

Teamed up with Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc, Hazlewood completes a potent trio of fast bowlers who have linked up with off-spinner Nathan Lyon to form one of the most effective bowling attacks in Australian cricket history.

Of the 70 Tests that Hazlewood has played in to date, 18 have been in Ashes clashes, where his average is very slightly higher than his overall record - which stands at an impressive 24.82.

12 of those 18 outings against England have been in England, with Hazlewood missing all but one Test of the 2021/22 home series due to a side strain.

His best Ashes innings figures are the 5-30 he took at Headingley in August 2019, with Hazlehurst capturing 4-85 in the second innings of that Leeds encounter.

World Cup wins the peak in ODI arena

Hazlewood has played in and won two 50-over World Cup finals with Australia, as the Baggy Greens claimed the trophy in both 2015 and 2023.

The now 32-year-old seamer made his ODI bow against England as far back as June 2010, but his second appearance did not come until September 2013 against the same opposition.

Since then he has made 86 ODI appearances and taken five wickets in a match on three occasions, with his economy rate a top-quality 4.72 runs an over.

His first five-wicket haul came against South Africa in Perth in just his fourth ODI and he repeated that feat against West Indies at Bridgetown in June 2016.

Hazlewood recorded his best return against New Zealand in the 2017 Champions Trophy in England, claiming 6-52 against the Black Caps in a match at Edgbaston, Birmingham, that ended in no result due to bad weather.

Hazlewood stars in T20 World Cup final

Hazlewood was handed his T20I debut against West Indies in February 2013, but he dropped off the 20-over radar for more than four years between March 2016 and September 2020.

However, since then he has become a regular in the shortest form of the international game, taking four wickets in a match on four occasions, with his best figures the 4-12 he took against Sri Lanka at the SCG in February 2022.

That was part of a run of three four-wicket hauls in seven matches, while he would enjoy global glory with Australia at the 2021 T20 World Cup, recording outstanding figures of 3-16 in the eight-wicket final victory over New Zealand in Dubai.
