"I think it's going to be near impossible for any quicks to play all five with it being such a tight schedule."

But he said it would at least ensure the team was playing at the highest level. <p></p> <p></p>"I think we've got one four-day game between those two tournaments (World Cup and Ashes) and a couple of training sessions," said Hazlewood. "It's going to be a pretty quick turnaround." <p></p> <p></p>Hazlewood played in the first four Tests during the Ashes in England in 2015 before an injury forced him out of the fifth. <p></p> <p></p>The first Test starts at Edgbaston on August 1.
