Australia skipper Pat Cummins admits that he would highly appreciate it if Cameron Green focused all his energy on playing for the national team. However, he will not act as a roadblock to the young all-rounder’s dream of playing in the IPL. The 23-year-old impressed on the tour of India while opening the innings in T20Is with skipper Aaron Finch in the absence of David Warner.

He butchered the Indian attack into pieces in Mohali and Hyderabad. Overall, the tall-rounder smashed 118 runs in three innings and averaged 39.22 for the series with a breathtaking strike rate of 214.54. Green’s power-hitting prowess and his genuine pace with the ball are likely to have teams bidding for him aggressively if he decides to enter the IPL auction next month.

The record for most expensive Australian player is held by their current ODI and Test captain, Pat Cummins. The fast bowler was bought for Rs 15.50 crore by the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2020. His record too might be in danger, and Cummins probably knows that.

“Yeah potentially (Green will enter his name in the IPL auction). We’ll wait and see, I think the auction is a little while away,” Cummins told SEN Radio.

“Selfishly as a captain, I’d love for him to save all of his energy for Australia. “But how can you tell someone to say no to that kind of opportunity?” Cummins added.

Experts predict record bidding for Green

Franchises like the Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, Punjab Kings, and Sunrisers Hyderabad are looking for the perfect fit for their overseas all-rounder’s spot. Cameron Green is likely to be the number one target on their list. Even experts have predicted the franchises to go full throttle for the tall all-rounder. Former India head coach Ravi Shastri has called Green the hottest property in the all-rounders category.

“He’s a star in the making and he’ll get better and better with experience. He’s got the power, he can smash it a long, long way. So I think he’ll be watched very closely. He would go for over 10 crores, for sure.” Shastri said.

Former Australian opener Matthew Hayden had in October this year, backed Green to learn and grow as a player by playing in the IPL.

“You’ve got to learn how to play the game … You can’t play it in the nets, you play out in the middle under ground situation like this. Expose yourself to as many opportunities,” Hayden said.

Ace Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin expects Green to set a new record at the IPL auction, currently held by Chris Morris, who bagged a Rs 16.25 crore contract from the Rajasthan Royals in 2021.

“Some teams might think of using him in the powerplay and might go after him in this year’s auctions unless and until he pulls out,” Ashwin said.

“I am sure some team will break the bank for him in this year’s auction.”
