Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood expressed his belief that it would be in their best interest to see defending champions England exit early from the T20 World Cup, hinting at possible strategic manipulation. Australia has already secured a spot in the Super Eights with three consecutive wins in Group B, while England, with only one point from two games, needs to win both remaining matches to advance. Scotland, currently second with five points, is poised to take the other Super Eights spot, thanks to a superior net run-rate compared to England. Australia and Scotland are set to meet on Sunday in St Lucia. Hazlewood noted that England is one of the top teams and eliminating them would benefit not only Australia but also other teams. He acknowledged the possibility of strategic play against Scotland to maintain their run rate advantage over England. However, England's coach, Matthew Mott, dismissed Hazlewood's comments as humor, emphasizing his trust in Hazlewood's integrity. Australia aims to complete a group sweep against Scotland, balancing the desire to win with strategic considerations. England faces challenges ahead with matches against Oman and Namibia, while Australia and Scotland's encounter will follow England's group games.
