Royal Challengers Bangalore’s preparations for the IPL 2023 came in a major shock after it was announced that Australian pace bowler Josh Hazlewood would be unable to participate in the early stages of the tournament.
Hazlewood, who is currently recovering from Achilles tendonitis, was featured on the podcast and talked about his most challenging role as a fast bowler. However, Hazlewood was asked about Pujara, widely known as one of the most tenacious test racquets of this generation.
“The name Pujara [Cheteshwar] comes to mind. he loves to hit He hates going out. I think it’s a bigger thrill for bowlers if they get a wicket at the end.
It means you deserved it and put in a lot of effort…. He’s someone we’ve had great battles with over the years, perhaps, especially in Australia. He’s probably someone Australians don’t like,” said Josh Hazelwood.
The official title of Royal Challengers Bangalore also shared the clip on social media.

Josh Hazlewood talks about working hard to earn wickets and bowling batsmen that Australians hate bowling,” read the caption.
Despite the fact that Hazelwood finds Pujarra’s wicket more difficult to cast than others, the Speedster is the Indian batsman on Australian soil in the current World Test Championship (WTC) cycle. he was able to beat five times.
In India, Hazelwood was only able to expel Pujara once during that period. Josh Hazlewood had to return to Australia midway through the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after missing the first two Tests. In international cricket, Hazlewood made his last appearance in a match against South Africa in his third Test of January.
Josh Hazlewood has played 24 games in his IPL. With an economy rating of 8.02, the fast right-handed bowler has so far earned 32 wickets in the IPL. His last IPL game was against the Rajasthan Royals in his second IPL 2022 qualifier.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will begin their IPL 2023 journey on 2 April with a match against five-time champions Mumbai Indians at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
