Cameron Green to Miss Sydney Test Due to Fractured Finger

Cricket Australia has confirmed that Cameron Green will miss the Sydney test against South Africa that is scheduled to take place in the new year. Cameron Green was hit by an Anrich Nortje bowl during the final phase of the second day’s play of the boxing day test match. He was seen bleeding through his fingers after getting struck. Later on, the scans revealed a fracture on his right index finger. Green will not bowl in the remainder of the ongoing test match but will be available to bat if required. 

Green became the 2nd player from the Australian camp to retire hurt on the day after David Warner walked off with a cramp after completing his double century in his 100th test appearance. Green was instrumental in South Africa’s 1st inning collapse with a 5-wicket haul. The implications of Green not bowling in South Africa’s 2nd inning are yet to be seen. 

Earlier, Mitchell Starc injured his finger while fielding on the first day of the boxing day test. Starc’s injury allowed Green to have an extended spell and he ended up with his maiden 5-wicket haul. Starc has, however, returned to bowl during the ongoing second inning of South Africa. 

Cameron Green will now walk straight into the Australian team during their away series against India. Australia would love him to be a part of their test squad but it seems highly unlikely at the moment. Australia plays its 1st test against India from February 09, 2023, onwards.
