On this day at the B&T Stadium in Perth, Hazlewood lost out to Nathan Downie – an Australian national and Australian of the year in 2014 but not for the first time.

Hazlewood was never really in a position to play Test cricket. He was often seen batting at No 5, at the middle – a position where he can use the spin off the bat, and get the ball to take some wickets without being completely behind the stumps.
