IND vs AUS 2023: Mitchell Starc likely to replace Scott Boland for Delhi Test, Cameron Green still doubtful


According to recent reports, Mitchell Starc is likely to make his comeback for the 2nd Test against India. In contrast, Cameron Green is still doubtful as he is yet to recover from his injury. Pat Cummins-led Australian side defeated India by a margin of 132 runs and an inning in the first Test at Nagpur.

Without any doubt, Australia missed the services of their premium bowlers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and the rising all-rounder Cameron Green. According to the reports from News Corp, the source said, "Green's recovery was still progressing as per expectations, but it’s unclear if he will be passed fit."

Moreover, while speaking with SEN WA, Cricket Pundit, Adam Collins said, "Word on the street is he’s not quite ready to go as yet, recovering from a much more elaborate finger injury from when he had it broken in Melbourne, several pins (were inserted) in the finger He reinjured it a little bit in Bangalore at training camp last week, so they might be conservative around Cameron Green."

The wicket-keeper batter Alex Carey shared a few words about Cameron Green, saying, "He's looking pretty good. I'm not 100 percent sure (how is progressing) – he's a fantastic allrounder for the country. It will be nice to see him back soon. How much do you push it, we’ll leave that to the selectors, but he’s looking pretty good."

"I felt like I bowled well, but when you are bringing in someone like Mitchell Starc, who is a gun in these conditions and has bowled really well in Sri Lanka and Pakistan, hopefully, I made the selectors' job a little bit tougher than what it originally was," said Scott Boland.

"Obviously I want to play. I enjoyed the challenge of bowling in these different conditions. I've just got to make the selectors' job as hard as I can to bring someone in. "I don’t think we’re going to play three fast bowlers. There's only going to be two spots up for grabs, I reckon," he added.
