Cameron Green Replaces Josh Inglis In Australia’s T20 World Cup Squad | Cricket News

Explosive all-rounder Cameron Green on Thursday replaced injured reserve wicketkeeper-batter Josh Inglis in Australia’s T20 squad. The 27-year-old Inglis sustained an injury in a freak accident while playing golf when his six-iron snapped and cut his hand open at the New South Wales Club in La Perouse. “The Event Technical Committee of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 has approved Cameron Green as a replacement for Josh Inglis in the Australia squad,” ICC said in a statement.

“Green, who has played seven T20Is, was named as a replacement after Inglis was ruled out due to a right hand injury which has required surgery.” A genuine allrounder who can bat at any position and bowl medium pace, Green was in red-hot form against New Zealand and India last month.

The 23-year-old had slammed two fifties at strike-rates around 200 during his maiden T20 series in India. He has played 7 T20Is, scoring 136 runs and taking five wickets.

There was no ligament damage to Inglis, but cuts to the palm of his hand ruled him out of the T20 showpiece.

“It’s not looking good for Josh. We’ve got a bit of work to do and a bit of a problem to solve this morning around our back-up keeper and also a back-up batter,” Head coach Andrew McDonald said.

“It’s damage to the palm of the hand which is less than ideal, in his right hand where he’d be gripping the bat and if he had to keep, the ball would be impacting that area.” The reigning champions Australia will take on New Zealand in the tournament opener here on Saturday.

Promoted

Australia squad: Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa .
