Cameron Green is out for the Nagpur Test due to a broken finger…
All-rounder Cameron Green‘s attempt to play in Australia’s first Test in India is all but over as he recovers from a broken finger.
On Tuesday, the 23-year-old was limited to light duties during Australia‘s training session. He bowled on a center wicket pitch for a short while but appeared to struggle after suffering a nasty finger break during the Boxing Day Test.
According to Australia’s coach, Andrew McDonald, Cameron Green might play the opening match in the Border-Gavaskar series at No.6 as a Pure Batter.
Here’s what Vice Captain Has To Say
In spite of this, Smith all but said Green’s chances of playing in the Nagpur Test had evaporated. Smith Said On Tuesday:
“I don’t think he’s even faced fast-bowling yet, so I dare say he won’t be playing, but who knows,”
“I don’t even know what he’s done (at training), I was sort of focusing on my work.“
“We’ll wait and see but it’s unlikely I think.”
After replacing Cameron Green at the Sydney Cricket Ground for the New Year’s match against South Africa, Matt Renshaw might retain his No.6 spot. Peter Handscomb, Right Hand Batsman, is another option available to replace the injured Green.
He Played all the test matches last time when Australia Tour India in 2017. If Renshaw Plays then possibly there will be 4 left Handers out of the top six.
