All-rounder Cameron Green on Thursday replaced injured reserve wicketkeeper-batter, Josh Inglis, in Australia’s T20 World Cup 2022 squad. It means that Australia will not have a backup wicketkeeper in their 15-member squad.
Earlier, Australia have received a huge blow with Josh Inglis being ruled out of the squad as he suffered an injury while playing golf in Sydney. Inglis sustained an injury in a freak accident while playing golf when his six-iron snapped and cut his hand open at the New South Wales Club in La Perouse.
“The Event Technical Committee of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 has approved Cameron Green as a replacement for Josh Inglis in the Australia squad,” ICC said in a statement.
“Green who has played seven T20Is, was named as a replacement after Inglis was ruled out due to a right-hand injury which has required surgery,” the statement added.
Australia T20 World Cup squad: Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa and Cameron Green.
