Aussie Test bowlers sticking together

Josh Hazlewood is poised to play his 50th Test for Australia against Pakistan in Adelaide

Josh Hazlewood has preached the virtues of an unchanged Test bowling attack this summer and says their chemistry should not be underestimated.

The series against Pakistan moves to Adelaide for a pink-ball finale from Friday after Australia beat the tourists by an innings and five runs inside four days in the first Test at the Gabba.

Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc all took successful turns with the new ball across both innings, while Nathan Lyon's two wickets for the match were both timely.

Michael Neser remains in the wings and a chance to debut given selector Trevor Hohns' comments around his pink-ball potential, while James Pattinson is also available after suspension ruled him out of contention in Brisbane.

But Hazlewood said sticking with the same bowling unit was the "perfect scenario" and would play to their strengths.

"I think it's huge; we know everything about each other basically," he said.

"You know when guys are going well and when they might need to slow it down and have a word with them.

"I talk to Nath a lot, I field at mid-off for him a lot and we talk a lot about how things are going.

"If we're not bowling the right areas or getting the wickets (we talk about) what can we try here. It's huge I think."

A Hazlewood back injury brought about the only forced change to the bowling attack on home soil during the last Test campaign.

Australia's tactics changed in England on seaming decks, with both Pattinson and Peter Siddle deployed at times ahead of Hazlewood and Starc during the Ashes series.

New high performance boss Ben Oliver said on Monday there would be no rotation policy this summer, with teams picked on the basis of form, fitness and suitability to conditions.

It's music to Hazlewood's ears given he averages 20.22 - six less than his career average - in four Tests at Adelaide Oval, a ground he rates as his favourite for bowling.

"Ideally that's the perfect scenario," Hazlewood said of continuity this summer.

"Being a fast bowler you can never look too far ahead and it's quite tough, the summer in Australia.

"They do take their toll, but ideally you want to keep the same bowling group together, the same as the top six (batsmen).

"Guys get confidence, they relax when they know they are not on their last chance. We are certainly no different."
