Why Is Cameron Green Focusing On Red-Ball Cricket For The India Series?

The protagonist of the Wellington Test match against New Zealand, Cameron Green, is one of the most important players for Australia in the red ball format.

Cameron Green has been in the buzz ever since he played a majestic knock of 174 against the Blackcaps in the first test match of the series. Before this knock, Cameron Green also scored a hundred in domestic cricket, which kept him out of the T20 series against New Zealand.

Now this trick has turned out to be successful for the mighty Australians, and they might use the same trick before the India Test Series, which is scheduled to be played in December this year.

Australian teams of all sorts are not going to pick Cameron Green for the white ball series against Pakistan, allowing him to shift his focus completely to red ball cricket.

Speaking about the same Australian head coach, Andrew MacDonald said, “The next stress point on that’s going to be next summer leading into the Indian Test series. I think it’ll be a conversation where he’s at. I’d like to probably err on the side of preparing him through red-ball. We know how good a white-ball player he is. If you put a priority on what it looks like next summer, the white-ball cricket is important, but, geez, that Test summer is important. I think with the results he’s had out there, he’ll probably come to us and say, Can you give us a couple of Shield games before the first Test against Indiaa”.

The head coach further stated, “As far as other players are concerned, they will test the waters based on the individual’s needs.” We’ll use Shield cricket to get ready for the Test summer on an individual’s needs basis. There won’t be any [prescription that] this is what we’re doing with every player. But we’ll pick and choose what that looks like, based around international cricket.”.

Australia are currently playing against New Zealand in a two-match test series and are currently leading the series by 1-0. The second match of the series is all set to commence on March 8 in Christchurch.
