IND vs AUS: Australia’s coach Andrew McDonald reserved the highest respect for Cameron Green for his spectacular performance against India in the T20I series.
The young all-rounder who played as an opener struck the balls with brute force and looked so comfortable at the top. He literally mounted pressure on the Indian bowlers with his big-hitting skills.
The right-handed batter finished as the leading run-scorer of the series. He scored 118 runs at an average of 39.33 and also maintained a brilliant strike-rate of 214.55.
He smashed a half-century in the first and third T20I. Green scored 61 runs in the T20I opener in Mohali and then followed it up with a brilliant 52 in the series decider.
For sure, he is destined for greatness and will be looking forward to making his presence count in the upcoming edition of the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.
The marquee event will kick off from October 16 onwards. The tournament comes to a close on November 13 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Australia will kick-start their campaign on October 22 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

IND vs AUS: Cameron Green’s performance as an opener very impressive, says Andrew McDonald
Australia’s young all-rounder Cameron Green has drawn praises from his coach Andrew McDonald at the post-match presentation.
The 23-year-old has played 14 Tests, 12 ODIs and 4 T20Is for Australia. Overall, he has scored 723 runs in the longest format. He scored 270 runs in One-Day Internationals and 120 runs in the shortest format.
Australia’s coach Andrew McDonald spoke about Cameron Green’s performance as an opener in the recently-concluded T20I series against Team India.
“He’s certainly embracing the challenge of opening. We’ve asked him to show great intent at the top of the order and I think everything we’ve seen so far shows that he’s doing that.
“It’s probably opportunistic the way that he’s come into the opening position with obviously David Warner not being here and a couple of other players from our (T20) World Cup 15. Fortuitous, but he’s taken that opportunity and what he can do go out there if given an opportunity,” said Andrew McDonald.
India made a spectacular comeback in the second and third T20I and won the series by 2-1. Australia won the first T20I by 4 wickets. On the other hand, India won the second and third T20I. India beat Australia by 6 wickets in the second T20I. After that, the hosts clinched the third T20I by 6 wickets.
