Cameron Green Debut: The Australian All-rounder Cameron Green who suffered a concussion during the second practice game against India A might get his test cap in the first Day/Night game. Green could not keep his head away from Bumrah’s Straight drive and the ball struck into his head.
All-rounder is expected to practice with his Australian mates over the next two days and undergo medical checkups for any ranging concussion symptoms. The reports suggest he will break into the final eleven in the first Day/Night games, if he is fit.
Green might Debut:
“If he’s passed fit he’ll definitely play,” Langer told reporters on Tuesday. “We’re just going through the concussion protocols.
“If he gets fit for the game he will definitely play for us,” Justin Langer told reporters on Tuesday.
“We are going through the concussion procedures. If Cameron gets through the procedures of concussion and he feels good to train, he will make his debut, which will be very exciting for the Australian cricket as well as for him and his family.”
Australian head coach Justin Langer said that the selection of the openers was getting harder and harder with time and he has faced it. David Warner and Will Pucovski are already ruled out of the first game and Joe Burns is out of form right now.
The Australian management was previously keen on Joe Burns taking the responsibility as stated earlier but this time it would get much difficult for him. Still, he would be under the eyes of management and his two days of training would be crucial.
We were not taking the suggestions to shift Marnus Labuschgane from his usual position of three, though Matthew Wade could be a makeshift option for the opener, Langer added.
“Wade has got brilliant footwork. He has the batting for it and he can be used,” Langer told about the wicketkeeper-batsman who earlier batted at the middle order.
“Matthew Wade can counterattack as David Warner does and a lot of the great openers do. He can definitely do it.“
“We just have to work out what the best make up of our team is going to be.”
