Green Poised to ‘Plug Holes’ for Australia

Cameron Green ready for T20 World Cup

The Aussies begin their T20 World Cup campaign against Oman today.

BARBADOS: Australia’s all-rounder Cameron Green is set to bat in multiple positions at the T20 World Cup after showcasing his versatility in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Green had a slow start batting at number three for Royal Challengers Bangalore but flourished in the middle order after being benched for a few games.

Australia’s batting lineup for the World Cup, co-hosted by the United States and West Indies, is solid, but Green’s flexibility could prove valuable if selectors choose a second all-rounder. Green might also step in while captain Mitchell Marsh recovers from a hamstring strain and is unable to bowl.

“That’s the beauty of my recent experiences,” Green told reporters in Barbados ahead of Australia’s opener against Oman. “I’ve not had a consistent spot, but that’s been beneficial. I can fill various roles as needed. I think I’ll be plugging holes in the team this tournament.”

Green isn’t the only Australian player to benefit from an IPL stint. Fast bowler Pat Cummins, who captained Sunrisers Hyderabad to the final, noted significant improvement in his T20 bowling.

“We played 17 consecutive games in the IPL,” Cummins told Cricket Australia’s website. “International T20s often follow Test series, making it challenging to switch formats. The IPL helped me get the pace of the game and execute T20-specific deliveries better than ever.”

Reigning Test and one-day world champions Australia aim to become the first team to hold all three major cricket trophies with a victory in the T20 World Cup.
