Cameron Green proves generational talent with maiden hundred | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: After missing the first two tests in Nagpur and Delhi with a finger injury, versatile cameron green brought much-needed balance to the Aussie side that allows tourists to go with three spinners.
Green, who is considered a generational talent, stamped his authority with his first hundred test in the fourth and final test against India on Friday.
The lanky all-round player already made his presence felt in Indian cricket when he became the second most expensive player in IPL auction history. Mumbai Indians broke the bank to buy the Aussie for Rs 17.50 crore at the 2023 IPL auction.
Green failed to make an impact in Indore where the tourists prevailed by nine wickets in three days on a rampaging turner. He only made 21 in the only time he struck and went wicketless.
The all-rounder roared in the ongoing contest in Ahmedabad where he broke 114, only the third century in the bowler-dominated series.

Green combined in a mammoth 208-car partnership, the series-highest on either side, with Usman Khawaja who made 180 to help Australia post a record total of 480.
“You never know when it’s gonna happen, incredibly grateful,” Green said of his hundred.
The right-handed batsmen said he benefited from Khawaja’s soothing presence on the other end and took a sheet of Travis headThe ploy of making the most of scoring opportunities against the new ball.
The Narendra Modi Stadium ground featured the best batting conditions in the series so far and India finished Day 2 of 36 unbeaten.
After doing his part with the bat, Green is now preparing to contribute with the ball when play resumes on Saturday.
“He’s a very good wicket. So I think you might have to swallow your ego a bit.”
“I think tomorrow will probably be a holding role for me and let the spinners get to work.”
Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who won 6-91, praised Green.
“I hope you have listened to the IPL auction. It just tells you how the Indian cricket fraternity rates Cameron,” the off-spinner joked.
Ashwin said Green’s build and skill made him “a fantastic player” and he praised Cricket Australia for preparing him so well.
“These are unique cricketers you’re talking about,” Ashwin said.
“India are very different. We can’t protect these players any longer, (that’s) play or perish.
“In countries like Australia and England, I think those kinds of cricketers are pretty well prepared and I expect Cameron Green to be a wonderful cricketer all the way.”
