Currently, Australian star all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has been ruled out from the squad of the West Indies series due to a side strain. He got injured in early September during ODI series against New Zealand, and due to that injury, he missed the series against India, and now he has been ruled out from the series against West Indies.
Tim David and Cameroon Green got to play in the squad as Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh’s replacements. And the way both the players played against India was outstanding. Tim’s performance at the no.6 was unbelievable, and Green’s all-around performance in the early cricketing career was terrific. His opening knocks and bowling spell were excellent and appreciated by the World cricket fraternity.
Tim David was already chosen in the squad for the world cup. Whereas young all-rounder Cameroon Green has not been selected in the combination in the Upcoming ICC event but he is presenting a good case for himself. Recently, Australian legend Shane Watson advised Australian team management to not hurry with Cameron Green’s selection for T20 World Cup. He said that Aaron Finch must be the captain for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup and also highlighted young all-rounder Cameron Green should only feature in the tournament if an injury occurs to a key player.
“The only time I think he should be coming into the squad is if someone gets injured or they don’t recover from their injury,” Watson said. “Marcus Stoinis, if he doesn’t recover fully from his injury or Mitchell Marsh for example, if they don’t recover from their niggles that they’ve had in the lead-up to this T20 World Cup, then absolutely (Green is) the first one picked.”
According to Watson, selectors should remain loyal to the selected player of the T20 World Cup. They have performed that’s why they are selected. Cameroon Green has put a strong case but these innings have come after the squad selection and he should only be selected if someone can’t recover from his injury.
