Since making his international debut in late 2020, youngster Cameron Green has shown a lot of promise and played remarkably well in the longest format of the game. In his absence, the Australian team lost the first two Test matches of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy but ever since he made his return from injury in the Indore Test, the visiting side looked much stronger as they are currently in the driving seat in the fourth Test in Ahmedabad.
Notably, the 23-year-old registered his first century in Test cricket as the Indian bowlers looked clueless in the middle. The West Australian cricketer took some time to settle down and once he did, he played his natural cricket and eventually managed to score in three figures. Notably, Green is now only the Sixth Australian to have achieved the feat.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time Green has played an important role with the bat for Australia. In the Boxing Day Test against South Africa, the all-rounder batted with a broken finger and despite so, registered an important half-century for the side. He was always getting the start but could never convert it into a big total but in the fourth Test against India, he overcome the difficulties and played a mature knock despite being under pressure, as Australia are currently trailing 2-1 in the series.
Usman Khawaja, Cameron Green made Australia look unstoppable in fourth Test
Along with Cameron Green, opener Usman Khawaja too played some brilliant cricket in the middle. After losing Travis Head and Marnus Labuschange in quick succession, the visiting team were under pressure but Khawaja released all of that by playing some sensible cricket. Courtesy of which, he has smashed a brilliant century and with that, Australia are comfortably in the driver’s seat on Day 2 of the fourth Test.
Meanwhile, the Indian players would hope to make a strong comeback as they are looking to qualify for the finals of the World Test Championship (WTC) at the moment. With Sri Lanka currently playing well against New Zealand, India’s qualification chances are at risk and that’s not a good sign for the Rohit Sharma-led side.
