Cricket Australia has confirmed that the gun all-rounder Cameron Green will be the final replacement for the injured wicketkeeper Josh Inglis. Apart from it, the pacer Nathan Ellis has also been added to the squad confirmed by Andrew McDonald.
The head coach McDonald talked about the replacements and said,”(Cam) Green is definitely a discussion point, (seamer) Nathan Ellis as well (Ben) McDermott, (Josh) Phillipe and (Alex) Carey. There are a few (potential backup keepers) people to discuss.” Green was in red-hot form during the T20I series against Australia and New Zealand. Talking about Ellis, he bagged 3 three-wicket hauls and one four-wicket haul in his five appearances. Talking about Josh Inglis, while playing golf, the batter got a cut on his finger and was hospitalized. However, Australia already has Matthew Wade as the prime wicketkeeper, who is doing superbly both with the bat and gloves. The super-12 of the T20 World Cup will commence on October 22nd and the finalists of the 2021 T20 World Cup will lock their horns. There is no doubt that Australia will face no hurdle in playing the opening encounter without Josh Inglis.
Australian coach Andrew McDonald talked about the incident and said, “He’s potentially not going to take any part in the World Cup, so that’s all to unfold. It’s damage to the palm of the hand which is less than ideal, in his right hand where he’d be gripping the bat and if he had to keep, the ball would be impacting that area.”

He further added,”He saw a hand specialist yesterday. Thankfully, there’s no tendon damage and it looks as though that’s the positive out of the negative. They’ve been able to stitch it up and clean up the wound and let the healing begin.”
