Cameron Green is being hailed as one of the stars in the Australian domestic circuit after his magnificent performances in the Sheffield Shield tournament. The 21-year-old from Western Australia has hit two centuries of 158 and 197 in the early rounds of the tournament against Tasmania and New South Wales respectively.
Speaking on the selection of Green, chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns told the media, “Cameron’s domestic form has been outstanding and he has carried it through for Western Australia this summer.
