The COVID-19 outbreak and the ongoing lockdown in the country have compelled many cricket stars to interact with their fans on social media. The coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on human existence as well as the sporting scenario. All major tournaments have been postponed indefinitely and cricketers are currently resorting to Instagram live and Twitter Q&A to keep in touch with their fans.
Australia’s Chris Green, who was a part of Sydney Thunder squad in the most recent Big Bash League, answered a plethora of questions when he was live with Crictracker on Instagram. The 26-year-old also shared his opinion on the ‘Fab Five’ in international cricket and ranked five cricketers on the list.
To start off his ‘Fab Five’ list, Green picked Steve Smith in the first place. Considering his recent success in the Ashes, Green picked Smith in his ‘Fab Five’ list. Over the years, Smith has established himself as one of the vital strengths of the Australian squad.
‘You can’t go past Virat Kohli’: Chris Green
Furthermore, Green went with Virat Kohli at the second spot. “You can’t go past him,” stated Green while picking the current Indian skipper in his ‘Fab Five’. Kohli, similar to Smith, has evolved as one of the modern-day greats since breaking into the national side.
Green went with New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson as his third choice. Known for his on-field presence and leadership, the Kiwi batsman has delivered many match-winning performances for the national side. For the fourth position, Green chose England’s Joe Root. Despite being criticized for his poor conversion rate, Root is regarded as one of the best batsmen in international cricket at the present.
To finish off his ‘Fab Five’, Green went with Pakistan’s Babar Azam. The No.1 T20I batsman in the world has been rock-solid for the national side with his consistency. He is also set to don the skipper’s in One-day Internationals too. Hence, Green picked Babar to complete his ‘Fab Five’ list.
Green is yet to make his national debut. However, the all-rounder has shown his potential while donning the jersey in many T20 leagues. In 82 T20s, Green has scalped 65 wickets along with amassing 506 runs at a strike rate of 127.77.
