All-rounder Green makes it to Australia T20, ODI squads for India series

2020-10-29 11:50:00

Australia on Thursday included young all-rounder Cameron Green in their T20 and ODI squad for the limited-overs series against India while Moises Henriques returned to national fold after three years following his exploits in the Big Bash League.

India will play three One-day Internationals (November 27, 29, December 2) and as many T20Is (December 4, 6, 8) against Australia before the much-awaited Test series.

“Cameron’s domestic form has been outstanding and he has carried it through for Western Australia this summer. As a potential player of the future this is an opportunity for him to be part of the squad and build on his experience,” national selector Trevor Hohns was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia.

Australia have focussed on batting all-rounders while picking their limited overs squad.

Considered one for the future, Green’s maiden international call up is on expected lines. Recently, former Australia skipper Greg Chappell had said that Green is a serious talent, the best he has seen since Ricky Ponting.

Henriques had led Sydney Sixers to the KFC Big Bash last summer with a strike rate of just under 150.

“Moises is a tremendous cricketer with loads of experience and is a great person to have around the group. His form was extremely impressive in leading the Sixers to the BBL title last summer and he has played well at the start of this season,” Hohns said.

Mitchell Marsh, who injured his ankle during the ongoing Indian Premier League in the UAE, was not considered but he may make a comeback to the side for the A side before the Test series, starting December 17 in Adelaide.

“Mitch will commence some low intensity fitness and skills in the coming weeks and selectors are hopeful of his return to play in the Australia A fixtures in early December and then for him to be fully fit to perform his role in the side as an all-rounder,” Hohns said.

“What we do have is like for like replacements in Moises and Cameron as batting all-rounders in line with our selection approach for one-day cricket,” he added.

Australia ODI & T20 squad: (C), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey , Pat Cummins (vc), Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Sams, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner and Adam Zampa.
