Former Australian player Greg Chappell backed the talented all-rounder Cameron Green in his million-dollar IPL contract but he also questions the timing as well as he believes that might not be favourable for a young player in the development stage of his career. It is also noteworthy that, Mumbai Indians bought him for a whopping price of 17.50 crores in the IPL 2023 mini-auction in Kochi where he set INR 2 crores as his base price.

In his column for The Age, Greg Chappell said: “Cameron Green is full of promise, but will need to fulfil that with the bat sooner rather than later, for his own peace of mind. As an aside, while I can’t blame him for taking the money on offer from the IPL, I wonder whether it is a good career choice for his development as a batsman? It will put a lot of pressure on his young body with virtually non-stop cricket coming up. Mitch Marsh made a similar choice early in his career and has yet to realise his potential as an explosive middle-order player who could bowl some quality overs in Test cricket.”

“There is going to be a lot of pressure, a lot of expectation. That’s the nature of the beast when it comes to the IPL, when you see that kind of money thrown around. That’s going to be his biggest hurdle. It’s not about going out there and performing, he’ll do that, that’s inevitable. He’s going to have a big decision on his hands in a couple of years’ time with his body,” Greg Chappell concluded.
