Some Lesser Known Facts About Josh Hazlewood

  • In an interview, while explaining his love for different sports, Hazlewood said, “I was the three-time Australian champion at javelin from under-13s to under-15s, I was also good at shot put and discus.

  • His junior cricket coach and mentor, Mick Shelton, once shared an interesting instance from a junior-level match. He said, “He (Hazlewood) got five in a row and the last kid hobbled off after Josh hit him on the toe.
