Cameron Green of Australia may forego the Twenty20 and One-Day Internationals against Pakistan in order to concentrate on Red Ball Cricket before to the India match

<p>In order to concentrate on his red ball skills before the test series against India in the next home summer, Australia’s all-rounder Cameron Green could be freed from white ball responsibilities, according to coach Andrew McDonald.</p>
<p><img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-472544″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/cameron-green-2024-03-3e7b77019eee8162773de267a8f87782-3x2_11zon.jpg” alt=”” width=”959″ height=”639″ /></p>
<p>Prior to the current New Zealand test series, Green played Sheffield Shield cricket for Western Australia. He said that his red ball practice had prepared him for his match-winning 174 not out in the Wellington opener.</p>
<p>According to McDonald, Green may get a similar preparation for the five-test series against India and be rested for the ODI and T20I matches against Pakistan that is slated to begin over the domestic summer.</p>
<p>“I think it would be best to err on the side of caution and provide him with a red ball. We prioritize what it looks like next summer because we know how terrific a white-ball player he is,” McDonald said to reporters.</p>
<p>“I think with the results he’s had (at Wellington), he’ll probably come to us and say, ‘Can you give us a couple of Shield games before the first test against India?’” “White-ball cricket is important, but that test summer is important.”</p>
<p>At the Basin Reserve, Australia defeated the Black Caps by 172 runs, a margin of victory that almost matched Green’s first innings century, his second hundred of his test career.</p>
<p>After reaching his century, Green made a crucial 34 to help Australia be dismissed for 164 in their second inning.</p>
<p>Wellington solidified Green’s hold on the number four spot, which had been occupied by one of the best batsmen in the country, Steve Smith, who now starts the batting alongside Usman Khawaja after David Warner retired from the format.</p>
<p>As teammate Marnus Labuschagne’s stock fell, Green’s surged, revealing the number three’s troubles after he was able to muster only three runs in Wellington.</p>
<p>Labuschagne used to enjoy hitting hundreds of runs, but in his last six test innings, he has not scored more than ten.</p>
<p>McDonald said that as long as his teammates were doing the heavy lifting, there was no need for fear over Labuschagne’s form ahead of Friday’s second and final New Zealand test, which gets underway in Christchurch.</p>
<p>He said, “We want the top six or seven batters to be playing as a unit.”</p>
<p>Is he able to do it better? Without a question,. Is he aware of that? He is aware of it.</p>
<p>“Your career will experience ups and downs over time.”</p>
