Hailed by Greg, Green in squad
Western Australia all-rounder Cameron Green has been named in the Australia squad for the limited-overs series against India after being in sparkling form in the domestic Sheffield Shield.
Termed by former captain Greg Chappell as the best young player since Ricky Ponting, the 21-year-old Green scored 197 against New South Wales last week following a half-century against South Australia.
“Cameron’s domestic form has been outstanding and he carried it through for Western Australia this summer,” chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns said.
“As a potential player of the future, this is an opportunity for him to be part of the squad and build on his experience.”
Green is joined in the 18-man squad by seasoned New South Wales all-rounder Moises Henriques, who earns his first call-up in three years.
Henriques has been preferred to Mitchell Marsh.
Uncapped all-rounder Daniel Sams has been retained in the white-ball squad that toured England.
