The young batting dynamo of Australia, Cameron Green has been a revelation in white-ball cricket. His ability to score runs briskly at the top and bowl consistently at 130-140 kmph makes him an important asset for any team.
The Indian Premier League (IPL), which is highly regarded as one of the best cricket leagues across the globe, has unearthed some of the finest talents who have gone on to make a mark in world cricket.
Australia’s young all-rounder is also set to go under the hammer during the upcoming IPL 2023 auction and reportedly several franchises are expected to target him in the showpiece event, set to take place in Kochi in December.

On that note, let’s take a look at three teams that might target Cameron Green in the IPL 2023 auction:
1. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
The two-time champions have released the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Aaron Finch during the retention window. England’s star openers Alex Hales and Sam Billings have also opted out of the cash-rich league due to personal reasons.
Heading into the 2023 IPL auction, the Knight Riders will look to fill their opening batter’s void and for that they might turn their head to Australia’s top order batter Cameron Green, who is equally impactful with the ball as well.
2. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
The 2016 IPL champions have released their former captain Kane Williamson ahead of the IPL 2023 auction. They have also got rid of the West Indies skipper Nicholas Pooran, who has been out of form in the shortest format for quite some time now.
To pair up Abhishek Sharma at the top, Sunrisers Hyderabad will definitely try to acquire the services of Cameron Green. Given they are heading into the auction with the highest purse of INR 42.25 Crore, they can break the bank to get the Australian all-rounder on the team.
3. Gujarat Titans (GT)
The defending champions Gujarat Titans have traded the Kiwi pacer Lockie Ferguson and Afghanistan wicket-keeper batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz to Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of IPL 2023 auction.
By releasing Ferguson and Gurbaz, Gujarat must have fallen short of a pacer and an opening batter in their squad and given, Cameron Green can open the batting for the team and can bowl consistently at 130-140 kmph, the Titans will definitely go after him in the auction.
