CAMERON GREEN IN RCB

The Australian all-rounder was moved to Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) by Mumbai Indians (MI). He was transferred to RCB just before Sunday’s 5 p.m. deadline for IPL teams to reveal the names retained and released in advance. During the announcement, Green was still a member of Mumbai India’s retained players. Bobat explained the last-minute trade’s motivations. Mo Bobat, the director of RCB believes that Cameron Green might be a potent package for the franchise. He also added that he could be explosive particularly at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

“He’s the ideal fit for us in that middle-order power role. He’s a high-quality, skillful and powerful batsman. He’s got the game against both pace and spin. He’s got international experience across formats and I’m sure he will enjoy batting at the Chinnaswamy. So, seeing him do that will be really exciting. He’s also a fantastic bowler and he bowls with pace and bounce, which were certainly attributes we were looking for particularly in our home conditions. Let’s not forget what an exceptional fielder he is. Some of the catches he has taken in recent times fielding at gully is seriously impressive”

Talking further about Cameron Green, he added

“If I go back to mid-morning yesterday [Sunday], we were pretty clear on our retentions and release decisions and we had communicated it to all of our players. We were pretty clear on what that meant for our auction priorities. So, felt like we were going to have a fairly quiet afternoon. If you look at the retentions and the decisions we made, we’ve obviously got a really strong top order and we wanted to enhance the middle order by adding a little bit of power.
