According to the latest reports, the Australian all-rounder Cameron Green is doubtful to take part in the second Test of the four-match series, starting from Friday in Delhi against Delhi. After losing the opening Test by an innings and 132 runs, Australia banked on the availability of Cameron Green to make the right balance. However, there are certain chances that the veteran pacer, Mitchell Starc will be making a comeback.

As per the reports in News Corp, they said, “Green’s recovery was still progressing as per expectations, but it’s unclear if he will be passed fit.”

Cameron Green has not played since breaking his finger against South Africa on Boxing Day and his return to the Test team has been delayed after that same finger was hit during a training session ahead of the Border-Gavaskar series.

Talking about Green, during a chat with SEN WA, Crickey broadcaster, 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, a number of 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.”

Meanwhile, The Age reports that Michell Starc seems a certainty to play the second Test as he is expected to be fit and could replace Scott Boland.

During a chat with the reporters Scott Boland said, “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.”

He further added, “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.”
