Australian all-rounder Cameron Green has enjoyed a meteoric rise in domestic cricket, churning up some impressive numbers in the four-day format. Green, who has been termed as an equivalent to the star English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff, has received praises from Ashton Agar. Australia’s T20 specialist Ashton Agar heaped praises on his compatriot, naming him as the player to watch out for in the future.
The 2019-20 Sheffield Shield season saw Cameron Green score three centuries for Western Australia. Having made his first-class debut in 2017, the 20-year old has managed some astounding numbers under his belt. In 15 first-class fixtures, he has 833 runs at 43.84 with three hundreds and one half-century. To add up, he has 28 scalps at an average of 21.53.
Green’s ability as a young player, who could combat the pressure and make crucial contributions mesmerized Ashton Agar. The left-arm spinner called the towering youngster an incredible talent and indicated a bright future for him.
“Greeny is an incredible player and the scary thing is he didn’t even bowl last year. For a young guy to come in and handle pressure situations as a standalone batter and make big hundreds and important contributions in big games showed mental ability beyond his years in cricket.” Agar said as quoted by ESPN Cricinfo.
I can only see Cameron Green getting better and better with both the bat and ball: Agar
Ashton Agar remained confident that Cameron Green will only get more and more superior in his all-round skills. The southpaw believes that to have someone, who can pose a threat in all the departments as a specialist, is an outstanding talent.
“I can only see him getting better and better with the bat and then with the ball. He’s two meters tall and to have someone like that in your team, who’s got raw pace and can play as a specialist batter or a specialist bowler, that’s some pretty scary talent.” the 26-year old stated further.
