Hazlewood resigned to carrying the drinks

Australia

Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood says he's not expecting to be picked for many World Twenty20 games, and thinks the selectors are likely to go with 'a bunch of all-rounders' in most instances.

While Hazlewood is the Test attack leader, he falls behind the likes of James Faulkner and John Hastings in the pecking order in T20s, and expects Nathan Coulter-Nile will keep the one pace spot up for grabs.

Hazlewood said after the defeat to the West Indies in a warm up match on Saturday: "They've probably already got their XI in the back of their mind.

"There's a couple of our guys who didn't bowl in the match, a couple of quicks who did quite well in South Africa.

"There's plenty of competition for every spot so we'll see what happens on Friday. It could be as simple as that.

"Depending on the wicket, it could really be one quick and a bunch of all-rounders who do play this format a lot of the time."

The paceman, who took a hat-trick against the Windies, also added that time was a factor, and that the short span of the tournament meant selectors weren't likely to risk changing the team up more than necessary.

He added: "The one-day World Cup, it went a little bit longer, six weeks.

"If you get that first opportunity and take it in this one, we've got four games in pretty quick time.

"So I don't think there will be as much chopping and changing but in saying that it depends on the conditions at each ground."
