Legendary Australian Cricket Team batsman David Warner is all set for his final Test series. After the 3-Test series against Pakistan, David Warner will say goodbye to this higher format of cricket, but a big question will arise again for Australia. Which batsman will replace Warner who can open the batting in Test cricket? In this context, former Australian captain Steve Waugh has put forward a great option in the form of Cameron Green.

Although Marcus Harris, Cameron Bancroft, and Matt Renshaw are also being considered as David Warner’s replacements, Steve Waugh has kept his faith in Cameron Green. He said in this context, ‘There are many good options, but I am seriously looking at Cameron Green as an opening batsman. I want to see him play on the team because he has a lot to offer the team. His arrival brings balance to the team because he can bowl 10–15 overs and he is also a good fielder. He has not yet performed like that in batting, but his technique is very good, especially since he plays fast bowlers well.

Steve Waugh further said that he has bowled at number 6 at the moment, and it is during number 6 that the second new ball comes into play. So he will be a good option, like Shane Watson. That’s why I want to see him bat. Currently, Mitchell Marsh occupies the number 6 position, so he should open the batting if possible.

Let us tell you that Cameron Green has participated in 24 Test matches for Australia, where his batting average is 33.59. During this season, he scored 1075 runs in 36 innings while batting at number 6 or 7, which included 1 century.
