Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023: Cameron Green badly injured, won’t play in the first Test confirms captain Pat Cummins
Australia Test captain Pat Cummins told Fox Sports, the 23-year-old all- rounder batsmen Cameron Green will be not playing in the first of the 4 series test match against India due to his finger injury while practicing in the nets. He was seen bleeding as he suffered a thumb injury that needed surgery.
Cummins further told the channel, “I know he won’t be bowling (in the first Test). The next week’s obviously really important, He hasn’t been able to do a lot yet. I think the nature of that particular injury is once it comes good, it comes good really quickly.”
He was the second most expensive player in the auction for IPL at a cost of Rs. 17.50 Crores sold to Mumbai Indians in 2023. Pat knows his value for the team so he has given Green the required break as his availability for the rest of the matches is crucial.
Cummins went on to assure there is nothing to worry about right now, “you look at our team, players like Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Scott Boland, they’re top-class bowlers, so even though it might be spinning conditions, it’s hard to bet against those guys not doing a fantastic job.”
Green debuted in the Gavaskar trophy in 2020 – 2021 and his performance was outstanding. Australia will play the four test series against India in VCA stadium in Nagpur on 9th of February 2023 and whoever wins will be in the final of World Test Champanship (WTC ) as South Africa and Sri Lanka are also in the line.
