Birmingham Bears has decided to cancel the contract of Chris Green for the upcoming season of the T20 Blast League.
It was expected that Chris Green would be the captain of the Birmingham Bears in the upcoming season of the T20 Blast. However, the club had decided to cancel his contract due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases. With that, he will temporarily be replaced by Will Rhodes.
The Australian cricketer has been signed up with the Birmingham Bears since last season where he acted as a replacement for Ashton Agar. His performance back then made quite a mark with the team when he took five wickets at the rate of 6.69.
Aside from the Birmingham Bears, Green also has a contract with the Kolkata Knight Riders of the IPL and another contract with the Guyana Amazon Warriors of the CPL.
In a statement by the Bears’ sporting director Paul Farbrace, he said, ‘All of the Cricket Management Team and players think the world of Chris. Nobody should forget the commitment that he showed to the Bears last summer by coming into the side for our Vitality Blast home match with Notts Outlaws, within 24 hours after completing a match in the Global T20 Canada’.
‘These are unfortunate circumstances and sadly the impact of COVID is something that every cricket club and organisation is feeling. Chris is a true professional. His willingness to support the Club and his and way of dealing with this has been exemplary. We certainly hope that we can bring him back to Edgbaston as a Bear soon’, he added.
