Cameron Green’s participation in the second Test of the four-match series in Delhi is uncertain, according to recent reports. Australia was counting on him to balance the team after losing the opening Test by a large margin. Meanwhile, there is a possibility that Mitchell Starc, the veteran pacer, may return to the team.
According to News Corp reports, although Green’s recovery is progressing as expected, it remains uncertain whether he will be declared fit.
Following a finger injury sustained during a training session prior to the Border-Gavaskar series, Cameron Green’s return to the Test team has been delayed. He had previously been absent since fracturing the same finger during a match against South Africa on Boxing Day.
Adam Collins, a Crickey broadcaster, mentioned during a chat with SEN WA that Cameron Green might not be fit to play yet due to a complex finger injury. According to Collins, Green had broken his finger in Melbourne and had several pins inserted, and he reinjured it during a training camp in Bangalore. Consequently, the team may adopt a cautious approach with Green’s return.
According to The Age, Mitchell Starc is expected to replace Scott Boland in the second Test as he is fit and ready to play.
Scott Boland mentioned during a conversation with reporters that although he felt he had performed well, he acknowledged that Mitchell Starc’s outstanding record in similar conditions and his recent successes in Sri Lanka and Pakistan could make it difficult for the selectors to choose between them.
