In the same year Josh Hazlewood began his chase for cricket greatness, proper, his elder brother Aaron began his family.
Six years on since Josh's 2014 Test debut, the laser-accurate quick has taken 195 wickets in 51 Tests.
In the same period, Aaron and his partner Stacey Fenton have welcomed three children - Summer, 6, Chayse, 4, and Laith, 1, mirroring the three kids his Bendemeer-based parents, Trevor and Anne, had.
Tamworth-based Aaron, 31, a maintenance superintendent at the mines, said "ya, absolutely" when asked if he wanted to replicate what he described as his "good upbringing".
"That's definitely something you try to do," he said, adding that he was "a bit younger than what was probably planned" when he started his brood.
"But in the end, it's worked out pretty good - having a young family while I'm not too old myself: they obviously take plenty of energy out of ya."
There are at least two dates that Aaron has marked on his mental calendar. The first one is Friday night, when Old Boys will attempt to defend their one-day title against City United at No 1 Oval.
The second one is January 7, when Australia play India in the third Test at the SCG.
The chance to see his 29-year-old brother in action at Sydney each year is high on his list of priorities. 'I'll definitely be trying to get to that one again this year," he said, adding that he and his family were "as excited" about Josh's career "as we ever were".
We don't see much of him; he's obviously a very busy man.Aaron Hazlewood
He added: "We don't see much of him; he's obviously a very busy man ... But that's how it goes, I suppose."
Old Boys suffered a sole loss heading into the one-day final: a one-wicket defeat to City United in the opening round. Aaron said Old Boys' form had been inconsistent, as had his. "We've only lost the one game, but we haven't played our best cricket. It's always good to find a way to win when you're not playing your best cricket."
