IPL 2023: Cameron Green banned from bowling until April 13

If Cameron Green’s finger injury wasn’t enough of a problem for his new team, the Mumbai Indians, his inability to bowl until April 13 has become a nightmare for the five-time IPL champions. Green is healing from a finger injury and will be eligible for Australia’s February trip of India.

If he plays in all four Tests of the forthcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy against India, the explosive Australian all-rounder, who was purchased by Mumbai Indians for a record-breaking fee, would be compelled to take a four-week vacation from bowling. On the morning of the December 23 auction, the franchisees were notified of Australia’s task management policy requirements through email.

“Cameron Green (player No. 8) will be completely available, according to Cricket Australia. However, if he plays in all four Border-Gavaskar Trophy Tests, Green would be unable to bowl for four weeks after the completion of the fourth Test, which is slated from March 9th to March 13th, 2023 “Hemang Amin, BCCI CEO and IPL COO, sent an email to all 10 clubs.

The young Australian sensation fractured his finger during the second Test against South Africa at the MCG. He is expected to be fit for the crucial Border-Gavaskar series in India. His all-round abilities have made him a vital addition to the Australian squad in a very short amount of time, and with major international events like as the WTC final and the Ashes looming, it only makes sense to manage his workload.

Following in the footsteps of the ECB and CA, the BCCI has also urged the National Cricket Academy (NCA) to monitor and control the workload of the Indian players who have been shortlisted for the 2023 ODI World Cup, which will be held later this year. The recent declaration by the supreme cricket body has put the IPL teams in a bind, as they may be forced to rest some of their important players throughout an extended season.
