Australia’s latest international cricketer Cameron Green opened up on his experience of bowling to Indian skipper Virat Kohli and facing spinners like Ravindra Jadeja in the third and final ODI against India.

Cameron Green, while sharing his experience of bowling against Indian skipper said-
“Bowling to Virat you can just see there is a step up in how good of a cricketer they are. I tried to bowl a bumper to Virat and he was onto it so quick.”
In the second innings of Australia’s chase, Green came to bat at number 5 and smashed 21 runs off 27 balls with the help of a four and a six. He got dismissed by Kuldeep Yadav in the 31st over. The 22-year-old also appreciated the quality of bowling he faced against India.
“Their spinners, I haven’t faced quality like that. Jadeja is a beautiful bowler who knows exactly what he’s trying to do: Spin some away from you and dart one back in.
“You can do as much research and watch as much footage as you want to get an understanding of how they bowl. But it’s a different beast out in the middle. I will take a lot out of it,” Green said.
