Australia’s men’s Ashes campaign has its first hurdle, with star fast bowler Josh Hazlewood ruled out of the second Test.

Hazlewood will miss the day-night Test at Adelaide Oval, starting on Thursday, with a side injury he suffered during the first match at the Gabba.

The seamer took three wickets in Australia’s dominant series-opening win and currently sits third on the MRF Tyres ICC Test bowling rankings.

Hazlewood returned to Sydney on Sunday afternoon for further assessment and rehabilitation with a decision on his fitness for the Boxing Day Test to be made in due course.

His likely replacement at Adelaide Oval will be one of Jhye Richardson or Michael Neser, with Richardson hoping to play his first Test in nearly three years and Neser eying a debut in the format.
