There are now only a few days left for the 14th season of the Indian Premier League to begin. The 14th season of the IPL will begin on April 9. Meanwhile, before the start of the tournament, MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings got a big shock. In fact, Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has suddenly withdrawn his name from the tournament citing personal reasons.
Information is given in an interview given to cricket Australia
Hazlewood gave information about the withdrawal from IPL 2021 in an interview given to Cricket Australia. He said I am in the bio bubble for the last 10 months. In such a situation, now I want to take a break from cricket. Actually, now I want to spend some time with my family. Now I will be here in Australia for the next two months.
Hazlewood further said, further we have to go on a tour of the West Indies and Bangladesh. And then the T20 World Cup and then the Ashes series. This means that the next year is going to be very busy. That is why I have decided to separate from IPL 2021.
Hazlewood joined CSK’s team in IPL 2020
Significantly, the Chennai Super Kings bought Hazlewood in the IPL 2020 auction. However, last year he got the opportunity to play only three matches. In this, he was successful in taking a wicket. Last year, the IPL was held in the UAE, but this time it is going to be in India only. In such a situation, Hazlewood could prove to be very useful for Chennai.
Josh Hazlewood had a very short brief association with Chennai Super Kings in the IPL. Last season itself, Hazlewood, associated with Chennai, could play only 3 matches and took 1 wicket for 64 runs.
