In the lead-up to Indian Premier League 2023, Australia head coach Andrew McDonald expressed concern regarding Cameron Green’s workload and said a decision would be made closer to the tournament. Green has recently nominated his name for this month’s IPL player auction, which is expected to attract huge interest from IPL franchises.
Does his (Green’s) upcoming workload pose a problem for him? The Australian Associated Press (AAP) quoted McDonald as saying, “It’s a concern for every player.”. “We have discussed it a number of times. Come March, it’ll be interesting to see how he feels. The IPL is a long way away, so I’m sure his decision won’t be made right now, but later on in the lead-up.
“After nine Test matches plus some white-ball cricket at the end of that Indian series, you never know what your body will feel like in three months,” he said.
As they look to add to their already star-studded bowling attack, Australia will keep a close eye on Cameron Green’s bowling.
The 2023 IPL will be held in the interval between the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in India and the Ashes in England (June-July). Managing his workload is one of the challenges Green faces, according to Australia opener David Warner.
Despite a busy international schedule, Australia Test captain Pat Cummins opted out of IPL 2023. Even, throughout the past few months, Green has plagued by back injuries, which have limited his ability to bowl.
Moreover, the quality of the bowler in front of him (Green) does not require him to bowl excessive amounts of overs, McDonald said. Even, it’s not easy to score runs with him in the top six. But, he holds his own. However, in other words, he’s pretty much unrestricted right now.”
In April and May next year, several Indian cities will host the 15th IPL season. Also, in between each season, a mini-auction is usually held. Moreover, followed by a mega auction once every three.
Meanwhile, in contrast to the mega auction that is held last season, the IPL 2023 mini-auction is held next season. Also, there will be a mini-auction in December. So, Kochi will host the event on the 23rd. However, as part of the auction, the players’ base amounts are revealing as well. Even, there are various amounts listed for players under Rs. 2 crores.
But, there is more expectation on the foreign players than on the Indian players in this auction. Even, among the players expected to bid high amounts are Sam Curran, Ben Stakes, Cameron Green, and others. Because only they are experts in T20 cricket and have all-around skills.
Additionally, the amount they are starting with is Rs. 2 crores. In order to strengthen their teams, all teams, including Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Kolkata, will bid for them.
It is now questionable whether Cameron Green will play in this year’s IPL series. Cameron Greene’s workload has caused concern for Australian head coach Andrew Macdonald ahead of IPL 2023. According to him, the decision regarding the all-rounder’s participation in the T20 tournament will make as soon as the series begins.
“Do you have any concern about Green’s workload in cricket over the next 12 months?” he asked. It applies to all players, I believe.
There have been many discussions about it. In the weeks leading up to the IPL series, he will play a number of matches. My guess is that he won’t make the right decision now. In the weeks leading up to the IPL, he will be able to make the right decision.
“Nobody can predict how he will be after three months of playing so many matches before the IPL, including nine Test matches and some white-ball matches.”
In February and March, India and Australia play the Border Gavaskar series. In June and July, England will host the Ashes series. The IPL series will take place between April and May.
As a result, it is that so many matches in a row can be very challenging. Warner had once urged Green to take the right decision in this regard. In a similar vein, Australia team captain Pat Cummins has withdrawn from the upcoming IPL series to focus on international duties.
