Summary

  • Australia will look to “open up a few scars” when the Ashes series against England gets under way in Brisbane on Thursday, says Josh Hazlewood.
  • Australia paceman Hazlewood said: “We have guys who played in that series who will remind England what happened.”

  • On the final day of England’s drawn match against a Cricket Australia XI, Ball bowled 17 overs in the nets and spent some time fielding.
  • He will compete with uncapped Somerset seamer Craig Overton for the final place in the England team for the first Test against Australia at the Gabba in Brisbane.
