Former Australian skipper Mark Taylor has urged the national selection committee to resist the urge of including all-rounder Cameron Green in the T20I World Cup squad following the latter's recent exploits against India.
Green was one of the shining lights for Australia with the bat in the recent T20I series against India as he made the most of the opportunities he got at the top of the order in the absence of David Warner.
Green took the Indian attack to the cleaners, smashing 118 runs in 3 innings at a strike rate of 214.5, including a 19-ball half-century in the series-decider in Hyderabad.
Here's what Mark Taylor said:
"I'd be sticking with the 15 they've already selected. I think it's a bit late to change now. He grabbed the opportunity to open the batting, and full credit to him for doing that. That's the spot in T20 cricket - the further up the order you can get, the better."
