Australian player Cameron Green has been called up by the national side for the first time for the upcoming series against India.
Cameron Green is an all-rounder who plays for Western Australia and the Perth Scorchers of the Big Bash League. Now, the 21-year-old player has been called up to be a part of the national side’s team lineup for their upcoming series against India.
Green’s inclusion to the national team came shortly after former cricketer Greg Chappell lauded him for his stunning performance in the early rounds of the Sheffield Shield. In fact, Chappell even compared the young player to Ricky Ponting.
Chappell says, ‘This kid can play – he’s a serious talent. I think he’s the best batting talent I’ve seen since Ricky Ponting. He’s got something special in that he’s 6ft 7in tall, we haven’t seen anyone of that size dominate from a batting point of view. And the kid can bowl, so it’s a real challenge’.
‘He can win us the next Ashes if he gets a little experience between now and then. It’s exciting and we all get excited about this kind of talent. You don’t see this stuff very often’, he added.
Selection chairman Trevor Hohn says, ‘Cameron's domestic form has been outstanding and he has carried it through for Western Australia this summer. As a potential player of the future, this is an opportunity for him to be part of the squad and build on his experience’.
Moises Henriques has also been included in the lineup as Mitchell Marsh continues to recover from his ankle injury. With that, Hohn added, ‘Moises is a tremendous cricketer with loads of experience and is a great person to have around the group. His form was extremely impressive in leading the Sixers to the BBL title last summer and he has played well at the start of this season’.
India and Australia are scheduled to take part in a series of three ODIs, three T20Is, and four Tests to be played from November to January 2021. To further understand these cricket formats, visit Betwala.
