Australia announce limited-overs squad vs India
The 21-year-old Cameron Green has only played nine one-day games for Western Australia and 13 T20s for Perth Scorchers. Although new to high-grade cricket, the youngster has already grabbed eyeballs. He has already played a 197-run knock in this year’s Sheffield Shield game. He also has a decent average with the ball.
Speaking in the wake of the squad announcement, Trevor Hohns said that the side performed exceptionally well and they are looking forward to another stellar effort in the upcoming summer against Virat Kohli & Co.
“The entire squad performed exceptionally well in the UK in beating the current one-day World Champions at home and retaining the World No.1 ranking in T20 International cricket. We look forward to a blockbuster summer against one of our greatest rivals,” said national selector Trevor Hohns.
“Cameron’s domestic form has been outstanding and he has carried it through for Western Australia this summer,” national selector Trevor Hohns said. “As a potential player of the future this is an opportunity for him to be part of the squad and build on his experience,” he added.
