Hazlewood discussed his mindset as a tailback, highlighting the harmony between finding scoring opportunities and playing defense, as he thought back on their collaboration. “It’s about keeping it simple: have your scoring options ready, maintain a solid defense, and don’t worry about looking too stylish,” he said following the play of day two. More important is efficacy.

Hazlewood also congratulated Green on his century and acknowledged the contribution of their combination to Australia’s higher score. “We concentrated on the circumstances of the game, choosing which balls Greeny would encounter and which he could take advantage of. Our relationship bloomed to 50, then to 100, and all of a sudden we were hitting 400 before we even knew it,” Hazlewood said.
