“I think your priorities change. You pay a lot of attention to your bowling when you’re just a bowler. You have that rhythm because you bowl 20 times an inning basically. That’s probably the main difference (between being a bowler and being an all-rounder).
“It’s hard if you try to do both equally. You have to try to prioritize one of them because you’re going to put too much pressure on yourself if you try too hard at both,” Green said.
He added that before a game he prioritizes his stick, while on game days he pays more attention to his bowling.
“I try to prioritize my stick in the weeks leading up to the game. Then on game day you hit a lot of balls that week so that’s prioritizing your bowling and your body , supporting all the training you did before,” Green said.
