The young Australian all-rounder talked about his role in the team and playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for the first time before Mumbai Indians’ game against Delhi Capitals.
Green entered this edition in excellent form after scoring a century in the final Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test. He claimed that so far, the tournament’s circumstances have largely followed what was anticipated.
“The circumstances have been remarkably similar to what I have previously encountered in India. They have had gorgeous batting surfaces and extremely quick outfields “said he.
For Australia, Green has had success both at the start of the batting order and later on. Despite batting at three for MI so far, he claimed that he doesn’t have a preferred position and is willing to do whatever is required for the team IPL.
“I’m more than willing to bat wherever the coach asks me to. You essentially feel like an opener when you bat at three. Your goal is the same as it would be if you were opening the batting. I don’t worry about where I bat in the lineup.”
Green also discussed the difficulties of bowling in India and how he’s still coming to grips with the conditions as a bowler.
