Irfan Pathan, a former cricketer for India, has hailed Cameron Green, an all-around player for the Mumbai Indians (MI). After a sluggish start to the current season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Australian has been essential for the Mumbai team. In MI’s seven games, he has scored 199 runs at an average of 49.75. Additionally, he has taken five wickets this season for the five-time IPL champions.
Pathan claims that Green has filled the hole left in the Rohit Sharma-led team by all-rounders Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard. For MI, Pandya and Pollard played crucial parts in their championship-winning campaigns over the years.
Notably, Hardik was released prior to the IPL season in 2022 and eventually rose to the position of captain for Gujarat Titans (GT). Prior to the Kochi mini-auction in December 2022, Pollard, who is currently Mumbai’s batting coach this season, announced his retirement from the IPL.
“Cameron Green has so far made his price tag appropriate. For MI, Green might be a long-race horse. Green appears to be filling the vacuum left by the departures of Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard for MI, according to Pathan on Star Sports’ Cricket Live.
The 38-year-old ex-cricketer had already hailed Green and predicted that the Australian all-rounder will soon become a major star in the sport. Green is a gifted player, according to him, and the world will see more of him since he is constantly getting better.
“Cameron Green will be the next big thing in cricket. He is a terrific player, and we will see more of him because he is getting better every day, according to Pathan.
Prior to the 2023 season, the five-time IPL champions paid a staggering INR 17.50 crore to acquire the Australian all-rounder. During the current season, he played his first IPL match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
