Marcus Stoinis Doubtful For The 2nd ODI Due To Side Strain; Cameron Green In Line For Debut

Fast-bowling all-rounder Cameron Green could be in line for his international debut after Marcus Stoinis pulled up with a side injury during the first ODI between Australia and India at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Stoinis, who was in the middle of a brilliant spell, left the field after delivering two balls in his seventh over.

The all-rounder is set to have a scan on Friday night but given the fact that there is a quick turnaround between matches- the second game is at Sydney on Sunday- it looks highly unlikely that he will recover and be available for selection.

Head coach Justin Langer, in the build-up to the series, had said that the only way Cameron Green can force his way into the playing 11 if he is able to be a full part of the bowling group.

Green returned to bowling in First-Class cricket after a gap of 12 months this year. However, his role was limited to four-over spells.

Apart from Green, Australia has the option of slotting in veteran all-rounder Moises Henriques, who forced his way into the set-up for the first time since 2017 on the back of stellar performances in the Sheffield Shield.
