ControversiesHazlewood and Steven Smith became a part of a controversy during Brendon McCullum's farewell test match in February 2016. The New Zealand vice-captain, Kane Williamson, was given not-out after an LBW appeal by Josh Hazlewood. Infuriated with Umpire's decision, Hazlewood went for a decision review. Even after seeing the replay on the big screen, and the subsequent not out confirmation, Australians led by Smith were left incensed with the skipper questioning the call. Hazlewood on his part was caught by the stump microphone as saying: “Who the f*** is the third umpire?”

Some Lesser Known Facts About Josh Hazlewood

  • Does Josh Hazlewood smoke: Not Known
  • Does Josh Hazlewood drink alcohol: Yes
  • Hazlewood excelled at a number of sports at his school. Javelin Throw, Shotput, Discus Throw and Cricket were “a few” of his favorite sports.
  • 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. But I preferred cricket because it was a team sport, and you always got the chance to play with your mates.”
  • Friends of Hazlewood’s dad reportedly placed a Aus$100 (US$82) wager with British bookmakers almost 11 years ago at odds of 500-1 that Josh would become a Test player before the age of 30. The bet paid off well, and in 2014, with Hazlewood’s debut, his dad’s friends won Aus$50,000 each, a return 500 times the initial bet.
  • 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. Josh probably would have got six wickets in a row but the last kid was too scared and wouldn’t go out to bat.”
  • At the 2010 U-19 world cup, Hazlewood ended up becoming the third-highest wicket taker by picking up 13 wickets. His best performance came in the final where he took 4 wickets and helped Australia beat Pakistan by 25 runs. Thus, he was awarded the Man of the Match.
  • He was also awarded the 2015 Emerging Player of the year award by ICC.
