Cameron Green still in contention to step in for David Warner in Australia’s lineup

1 min read

Australia’s selectors are meeting to confirm the squad, but they are unlikely to make a decision on David Warner’s replacement until after the third Test against Pakistan. Australia’s assistant coach, Andrew McDonald, said that all options will be considered and a decision will be made after the deadline for the West Indies game. The debate is between picking a specialist or experienced opener or picking the best six batters available and simply reshaping the batting order to accommodate them. Cameron Green, as a discussion around who are the best six batters, has definitely been in the conversation. Warner himself endorsed Harris as a possible successor during the Boxing Day Test, but McDonald noted that it was not a hint at the selectors’ thinking. McDonald also confirmed that Warner would apply for a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to miss three ODIs and three T20Is against West Indies in order to play for Dubai Capitals in the ILT20 tournament in the UAE. Each application for an NOC will be considered individually.
