Green might have an outside chance of playing Nagpur Test: Australia coach McDonald

Nagpur,4/2:  Dashing all-rounder Cameron Green is making a quick recovery from his index finger injury and has an “outside chance” of making it to Australia’s playing eleven for the opening Test against India starting in Nagpur on February.

The 23-year-old seam bowling all-rounder, who is recovering from a surgery on his index finger in his right hand, had a bowl at the nets in Alur. “We haven’t put a clear line through him on the team sheet. So, I wouldn’t say he was in discomfort when he was bowling,” McDonald told reporters here on the sidelines of their four-day training camp.


However there are still some concerns when he is batting, admitted the head coach. “I would say one of the deliveries jarred the bottom of the bat and that can create discomfort for anyone, but there is a little bit of awareness around that finger. He has made some significant steps forward in the last couple of days, probably to my surprise. “So, there is still an outside chance, everything going well, he might be on the team sheet,” McDonald kept the options open.
