- First Test of series in Adelaide from 17 December
- Langer hopes Cameron Green will recover from injury
- Green suffered a head injury during the practice match
Australia coach Justin Langer said on Tuesday that all-rounder Cameron Green would make his Test debut in the first match of the series against India in Adelaide. Green suffered a head injury during the Australia-A practice match against Team India last week.
The 21-year-old all-rounder was bowling green and Jasprit Bumrah hit a straight drive on his ball, which, in an attempt to catch the catch, the ball came out of his hands and hit the left side of his head. After this, Green was left out of the remaining part of the three-day practice match due to ‘concussion’.
