Cameron Green has made an impressive statement in his bid to rejoin Australia’s Test team with an impressive Sheffield Shield innings of 96 for Western Australia. At No.4, the 24-year-old allrounder struck 15 boundaries plus a six off Queensland spinner Mitchell Swepson. This innings, at the Gabba, was all class. Green opted out of playing in the BBL season to focus on red-ball cricket and regain his national team place, which was lost to state teammate Mitchell Marsh for this year’s Ashes tour. Green has made a compelling case for reinstatement with a 170-run partnership with centurion Hilton Cartwright, bumping Western Australia from 3-29 to 330 all out. Australia’s chairman of selectors George Bailey indicated on SEN Radio this week there could be an option to play Marsh alongside Green once David Warner retires after the New Year’s Test in Sydney. This match is likely to end in a draw. Meanwhile, Sheffield Shield strugglers NSW stunned ladder-leaders Tasmania to secure a second win of the season. After taking a 56-run first-innings lead, Western Australia are a chance of making it interesting if they can snare early wickets on Friday.
