Hazlewood feeling fresh ahead of Boxing Day

Updated: 

Josh Hazlewood says Australia are targeting another quick win against West Indies in the Boxing Day Test at the MCG.

It took Australia just two-and-a-half days to register a massive innings and 212-run win over the Windies in the first Test at Hobart, and Hazlewood is intent on a similar result in the second.

The 24-year-old has set out to play all six Tests this summer and another early finish at the MCG would go a long way to helping him achieve that, however the paceman has insisted his body is holding up well.

"I'm feeling the same as I have before every other Test this summer. The body is feeling really good," Hazlewood said.

"We obviously had a pretty decent break after Hobart.

"I'm feeling good. These two Tests (Melbourne and Sydney) are back to back but we'll play it by ear and see how I go after this Test."

Not that Hazlewood is preaching impatience.

In fact, he thinks patience is what will win the day for the Australians, as the Windies look to put up a braver fight than they could muster in Hobart.

"Probably the more you try to wrap a game up quickly; you get impatient and get a bit greedy. You look to go after wickets," he said.

"As a bowling group the way we started in Tassie I think was perfect, nice and patient and built that pressure.

"Then the wickets came, so I think we'll be looking to do that again."
