This might not be good news for the RCB fans, or for those who want to see Cameron Green in action. The Australian allrounder might be ruled out of the Indian Premier League 2024. But why? This is because of the health issues related to the player. He has tested positive for the virus that has plagued the world for the past four years. Read more to learn about how it affects Cameron’s participation in the IPL, and how it is already affecting the team combination in their series against the West Indies. Without any further delay, let’s get right into it.
Cameron Green tested POSITIVE
In a recent development, Green has been tested positive for COVID-19. He is with the Australian squad for the home series against the West Indies cricket team. However, he was feeling sick, so the management got him tested. But he is not the only one in the team suffering from this virus. Earlier, Travis Head got ill, and this is when the disease started spreading in the Aussie camp.
Since then, Cameron Green and Andrew McDonalds have also fallen ill. The team management has separated them from the rest of the team. The two players are in quarantine, and recovering from the illness. It takes a few weeks before the symptoms go away. Hopefully, the players will get better before the IPL starts. But will Cameron get a full clearance from the medical board?
RCB got Green for 17.5 Crore INR
Green had playing for the Mumbai Indians before. However, RCB got him from the MI for a whooping 17.5 Crores INR. This is a huge amount, and Cameron Green is worth it. The all-rounder is a valuable T20 player, and his numbers will tell you why.
Let’s have a look at his T20 career so far.
The young lad is in the early days of his T20 career. However, the strike rate and the average should be enough to tell you that this guy is not coming to the pitch to chill. He is there for the bang. And that’s not it. His ability to bowl in the middle overs makes him a good option for the RCB.
The Royal Challengers should wish that Cameron Green gets better before their campaign starts. His utility as a batting allrounder (along with the price that RCB paid for him) warrants that the team takes full advantage of him in IPL 2024. Usually, it takes about 4 weeks to recover from the virus. Hence, it is a far-fetched notion that Cameron Green is ruled out of IPL 2024. Hopefully, he will play for the team and help them make quick runs!
