The 23-year-old Australia National Cricket Team pace-bowling all-rounder Cameron Green has confirmed that he will be entering the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 auction.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 player auction, which will be a mini-auction, is set to be held on December 23 in Kochi. The window for the franchises to retain and release players ended on November 15 and 163 players were retained by the franchises whereas 85 players were released.
Cameron Green, who is expected to attract huge bids at the IPL 2023 mini-auction, performed brilliantly in the Australia tour of India 2022, which took place just before the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 and many cricket pundits and former cricketers like Wasim Jaffer felt that he will be one of the most sought-after players in the auction.
Meanwhile, Cameron Green expressed excitement over his participation in the Indian Premier League and said that some of his West Australian teammates spoke highly of the IPL.
“I have registered for it. It will be an exciting opportunity,” Green was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au on their ‘Unplayable’ podcast.
“Speaking to a lot of guys, especially in the WA (Western Australia) set up about their experiences in the IPL, they speak so highly of it. They speak about the quality coaches that you are around, the quality players that you are around. They are all the best in the world at their craft.”
“It is a craft that I have not been exposed to too much. I am so open to wanting to learn as much as I can and that is probably one of the best environments to learn in,” Green said.
Thankfully I am the fifth bowler on the team – Cameron Green
Cameron Green has not played any first-class cricket this summer due to his white-ball responsibilities and heading into the Test season would be challenging for the youngster.
“My body is in a really good place. You always wish you had a couple of red-ball games under your belt just to kind of get into that rhythm. But thankfully I am the fifth bowler on the team so I can work my way in. Hopefully, I can work my way into the series.
“Not managed … just not having too high expectations on yourself. With your rhythm, you might bowl 15 overs over a day, (but) I am probably not used to it. So you work into the series that way,” Green added.
