Share post:

The impending three-match Test series against Pakistan, commencing on December 14 in Perth, signifies the conclusion of David Warner remarkable red-ball cricket career. As Australia seeks a worthy successor, Mark Waugh has proposed a departure from conventional choices like Marcus Harris, Cameron Bancroft, and Matthew Renshaw. Instead, Waugh advocates for star all-rounder Cameron Green, currently in the middle order, to partner with Usman Khawaja as the opening pair for the Australian Test team.

Recognizing the challenge faced by selectors in filling Warner’s shoes, Waugh values Green’s all-around capabilities as a distinctive advantage. Despite Green yielding his spot to Mitchell Marsh during the Ashes tour, Waugh perceives the young talent as a valuable asset for the team’s future.

Waugh expressed the complexity of the decision, acknowledging the notable performances of Bancroft, Harris, and Renshaw. While Bancroft has shown promising form in the last 12 to 15 months at the first-class level, Waugh suggests that the selectors might be exploring alternative options, with Green emerging as his preferred choice for the opening role alongside Usman Khawaja.

Waugh envisions that Cameron Green’s inclusion as an opener could bring a Shane Watson-like dynamic to the team. Green’s multifaceted skills, including his capacity to bowl quality overs, exceptional fielding prowess, and promising batting technique, make him an appealing option. Despite Green traditionally batting at six in the lineup, Waugh sees the potential for success in promoting him to an opening position.
