Michael Clarke, a former cricketer for Australia is dissatisfied with a number of Australian players. Who is currently competing in the Indian Premier League?
Speaking with Fox Sports, Clarke expressed his annoyance over the lack of planning for the important red-ball games the national team is scheduled to play over the next three months.
The World Cup-winning captain is upset that Josh Hazlewood and Cameron Green. Two regulars on the test team are currently playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Mumbai Indians.
Using Hazlewood as an example, Clarke explained his position and claimed that, given his history of recent injuries, Hazlewood should be in Australia.
“Why he plays IPL so frequently is a mystery to me. In the Mike Hesson-led RCB camp”, Clarke said of Hazlewood, “I don’t know why he’s not over here in Australia getting ready to play Test match cricket”.
In order to improve his bowling for Test match cricket, Clarke said, “I know they’ll have people over there and he’ll be bowling more in the nets than what the IPL players are bowling”.
After the injuries the fast bowler has endured and the amount of time he has spent away from Test cricket. Clarke questioned, ”Whether bowling three or four overs at this time is the best preparation for an Ashes series”.
The ex-batsman continued by saying that Australia’s Cameron Green. An all-rounder should play for the national team because bowling three to four overs in a game is not the best way to prepare for crucial red-ball matches.
Due to the Pat Cummins team’s scheduled Ashes series against Ben Stokes’ England immediately following the WTC Final. Australia has a lengthy red-ball season ahead of them.
