Finger injuries could be tricky for cricketers, and Australia all-rounder Cameron Green is dealing with one.
He was hit by Anrich Nortje’s delivery in the first innings of the second Test while batting, resulting in a fracture.
Although he scored a fifty in the game, he couldn’t bowl in the second innings and has been ruled out of the third and final Test against the Proteas,
Green was recently bought by five-time champions Mumbai Indians for INR 17.50 crore at the Indian Premier League 2023 auction.
In the latest development, Green is set to undergo surgery to fix his injured finger.
After that, he is likely to return for a four-match Test series between India and Australia in the sub-continent. MI would be keeping a close watch on his recovery, having spent a lot to get him in the team.
Green took five wickets in the first innings. The right-handed batter has played many sensational knocks in the game’s shortest format.
