Cameron Green has shown a lot of promise and performed remarkably well in the longest format of the game. The Australian team lost the first two Test matches of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy while he was out. But after his injury-affected comeback in the Indore Test, the visiting team appeared to be much stronger. They are now in control of the fourth Test in Ahmedabad.
Notably, the 23-year-old scored his first century in Test cricket while the Indian bowlers were ineffective in the middle. When the West Australian cricketer finally found his footing, he played his natural game and eventually reached the three-figure mark. It is noteworthy that Green is now just the sixth Australian to accomplish the feat.
Furthermore, Green has previously contributed significantly to Australia’s batting lineup. Despite playing with a broken finger during the Boxing Day Test against South Africa, the all-rounder scored a crucial half-century for his team. He frequently received the opening but was unable to turn it into a significant total. However, he overcame his struggles and performed a mature knock, despite the pressure as Australia is currently trailing the series 2-1.
Khawaja- Green 208 runs partnership for 5th wicket
Usman Khawaja, the opener, also played some excellent cricket in the middle along with Cameron Green. The visiting team was under pressure after losing Travis Head and Marnus Labuschange in quick succession. But Khawaja relieved all of that by playing some sensible cricket. Due to this, he has scored a brilliant century, and as a result, Australia is comfortably in control of the fourth Test on Day 2.
The Indian players are currently trying to make it to the WTC finals and would like to make a strong comeback. India’s chances of qualifying are in jeopardy as Sri Lanka is currently playing well against New Zealand. SL needs to win 2-0 to reach the WTC finals.
