Twitter Hilariously Shares Memes On Josh Hazlewood Pulling Out Of IPL 2021 Coz Of Pujara

The coronavirus pandemic has brought many changes in our lives and the cricketers are no exception to it. They have to live in bio-bubble environment which is certainly a little hectic, especially the quarantine part. As the IPL 2021 is going to start in almost a week’s time, the foreign players are arriving in the country but the Indian cricket fans, especially fans of Chennai Super Kings, will miss the Australian cricketer Josh Hazlewood.

Josh Hazlewood was bought by CSK in 2020 at the base price of Rs. 2 crore but the pacer got the chance to play only 3 matches in which he was able to take only one wicket. Josh Hazlewood decided to opt out from the IPL 2021 as he needed a break especially because of the fact that the Australian team has a very hectic schedule ahead.

While talking to a cricketing portal, Josh Hazlewood states that he has quarantined and lived in bio-bubble at different times for the last 10 months now because of which he has taken the decision to have some rest, spend time in his home and Australia for the next two months. He adds that the Australian team will have a big winter ahead as they will be clashing against West Indies on a long tour followed by Bangladesh. He further says that later there will be T20 World Cup and then Ashes so he just wants himself to be prepared for it, physically as well as mentally by taking rest at the moment.

However, the social media networks are flooded with jokes and memes after Josh Hazlewood has announced that he will not be playing in the IPL 2021 as people are saying that Cheteshwar Pujara is the reason of Hazlewood pulling out from the tournament.

Pujara and Hazlewood played against each other in the 4-match test series which was played under Border-Gavaskar Trophy that was won by India by 2-1. During the series, Cheteshwar Pujara batted for long hours and troubled the Aussie bowlers so netizens are joking that Josh Hazlewood has opted out from the IPL 2021 so that he can save himself from bowling to Pujara for long hours in the nets.
