Cricketer icon Shane Warne has urged Australian skipper Tim Paine to develop a more defined role for versatile young player Cameron Green with the ball.
Although he entered this series of tests with a first-class practical record, Green has yet to find a wicket in both test matches.
According to Warne, Green’s lengths have been cut short and he urged the young gun to consult with his captain on where he stands alongside Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood.
“I think for him to be successful internationally with the ball – he will only play eight to ten per set, maybe a little more occasionally,” Warne said on a comment for Fox Cricket.
“He and Tim Paine have to work on his role in the side. Is it to play and try to bounce people off? I think he’s a little better than that. I think he should use it. her size.
“If he uses his size and bowls well, his relentless line and length with the odd little one and the yorker to just save the Cummins, Hazlewood and Starc line, just back these guys up with a pressure-building bowling, I thinks it might help his cause and the cause of the team a little more. “
Former Australian spinner Kerry O’Keefe added that Green seemed uncomfortable with how to use his massive 200cm frame.
“I don’t think he’s really comfortable with his height of 200 centimeters. I don’t think he found the length he has to play at 200 centimeters,” O’Keefe said.
“I don’t think on the pitch when he’s in the ravine he’s low enough for low holds. He’s so young, he hasn’t quite found a game of cricket that fits his height. will over time, of course. “
