Despite recent fitness worries, Josh Hazlewood has been selected in Australia squad for the WTC Final 2023. Australia have submitted their final 15-man roster for next week’s World Test Championship Final 2023, according to the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The paceman cut short his IPL season earlier this month because to “minor side soreness,” but Cricket Australia has cleared him to play in the championship Test at The Oval in London beginning on June 7.
The 32-year-old replaces all-rounder Mitch Marsh and batsman Matthew Renshaw, who were part of the original group, as the team’s specialist fast bowler, joining captain Pat Cummins, Scott Boland, and Mitchell Starc.
Australia Squad: Pat Cummins (captain), Scott Boland, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Marcus Harris, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Todd Murphy, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, David Warner
WTC Final 2023: India Squad
After wicket-keeper batsman KL Rahul withdrew due to a right leg injury and was replaced by the uncapped Ishan Kishan, Team India has now confirmed the 15 players they initially announced three weeks ago.
After a successful IPL 2023 season, Yashasvi Jaiswal, an uncapped opener, was picked along with Mukesh Kumar and Suryakumar Yadav as standby players for India.
Only with the ICC technical committee’s blessing are standby players now permitted to take the place of an injured member of the squad.
Following the final, in which both teams will be vying for their first championship, Australia will play England in the Ashes series, with the first test beginning at Edgbaston on June 16.

Before the championship game, the majority of the Indian team has arrived in the UK.
On June 7, India vs Australia ( IND vs AUS) WTC Final will begin at the Oval in London. On Sunday night, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Captain Rohit Sharma departed Mumbai for London. The other two Mumbai residents, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav, are anticipated to be with them.
