Cameron Green‘s prodigious young talent has been recognised with selection in Australia’s 18-man white ball squad for ODIs and T20Is against India, while the seasoned New South Wales allrounder Moises Henriques has also been included as Mitchell Marsh continues his recovery from an ankle injury.
In a week when the former selector Greg Chappell implored the current panel to choose Green after he maintained a seriously impressive streak of run-making in the early rounds of the Sheffield Shield – though he has yet to return to bowling after a string of back problems – the 21-year-old was handed his first opportunity to mix with the nation’s best players.
It remains to be seen how much Green will play, but with the Shield finishing up well and truly before the international season begins and making way for the BBL, this is a clear indication he is a chance of making his Test debut against India this season.
“Cameron’s domestic form has been outstanding and he has carried it through for Western Australia this summer,” the selection chairman 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.”
Squad Aaron Finch (capt), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Sams, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa
