Touted as the next big thing in Australian cricket, Cameron Green has managed to impress everyone in his short career. After starting his career in Test cricket, the all-rounder is slowly making giant strides in white-ball cricket. When we talk about T20 cricket, Australia are trying to push Cameron Green forward in the footsteps of the legendary Shane Watson.
With the same agenda, they sent the lanky all-rounder to open the batting during the T20I series against India earlier this year. In 8 T20Is, Cameron Green has scored 139 runs and picked up 5 wickets. However, his strike rate with the bat is 173.75. The 23-year-old is a powerful striker and he displayed his quality against India.
In that series, he scored 118 runs in 3 matches at a devastating strike rate of 214.54. Despite getting only one wicket, he was impressive with the ball as well. Cameron Green’s height helps him get extra bounce from the hard length. Hence, it makes him a difficult customer to deal with.
Cameron Green is likely to put his name ahead in the upcoming min-auctions ahead of IPL 2023. Most franchises will look to go after the youngster as quality pace-bowling all-rounders are a rare commodity in the market. However, a couple of franchises like RCB and KKR don’t have the purse to go after him. In this post, we will take a look at the top 3 teams that can target Cameron Green in the mini-auctions.
3. Lucknow Super Giants
The Lucknow Super Giants have let Jason Holder go ahead of the next edition of the Indian Premier League as they need a batting all-rounder instead of a bowling all-rounder.
Ideally, the LSG would want to sign Ben Stokes as they already have a settled opening pair but if they fail to get their hands on the Englishman, they will go after Cameron Green.
The Lucknow Super Giants have a purse remaining of INR 23.35 crore, hence, they are also in a better position to thwart many franchises away from signing the Aussie all-rounder.
