I just tried to hit the top of the stumps. I was lucky enough to get a couple of straight on. Pretty happy with the effort. Theres still a few things to work on but were improving as time goes on,” he said. “I think with my length. I was a touch short in Johannesburg. The ball set up quite nicely. Were just hitting top of the stumps on that wicket. Its a little bit up and down and it worked for the start.” T20 may still look like a batmen oriented game but Hazlewood said a bowler still can grab his chances with a lot of tricks. “Certainly spinners do it over here. Up front you need to take wickets no matter what and put that batting unit on the backfoot. Otherwise they will enjoy freedom for the rest of the innings,” he said. “You would always want an experienced spinner but they got to start at some point. I think Adam (Zampa) learnt a fair bit on the go tonight. He will better of on the run and hopefully keeps improving throughout the tournament.” He also lavished praise on Shane Watson and said the allrounder would be handy in this conditions with his vast knowledge of playing here in the IPL. “Hes quite a special player, he is experienced as well for a young side. Hes been fantastic throughout South Africa and here as well. His knowledge of these grounds and conditions here will be pretty valuable,” he said of Watson who topscored with 60 as they scored 161/9.
