Josh Hazlewood is fast developing a Glenn McGrath-like reputation as a consistent threat with the Kookaburra in hand. The boy from Tamworth took seven wickets in his debut Test against India and Brisbane and has not looked back since. His 32 wickets across the 2016-17 home Test summer stamped him as one of the world’s leading paceman. His height and unnerving accuracy provide bounce and movement of the seam which challenges all international batting orders in any conditions.
