new Delhi. The list of injured Australian players continues to grow ahead of the final Test against South Africa in Sydney. Now the name of all-rounder Cameron Green has also been added to this list. He is the second Australian player who has been ruled out due to injury. Something similar is likely to happen with bowler Mitchell Starc. Australia’s fast bowler Mitchell Starc suffered a finger injury on Monday. If he is not available for the remaining days of the Melbourne Test, then Australia will have only three fit bowlers in captain Pat Cummins, fast bowler Scott Boland and spinner Nathan Lyon.

Cameron Green suffered an injury to his index finger while batting against Enrique Norkia in the ongoing Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. In such a situation, the 23-year-old player was forced to retire hurt on the second day. Cricket Australia said, “Cameron Green has a small fracture in his right index finger. He will bat again in this match, but will not bowl. It is necessary for Green to remain fit for the Border Gavaskar Trophy against India in February. This means that Green will not play the third and final Test match against South Africa.

Aaron Hardy can replace Cameron Green in Sydney Test
With Cameron Green ruled out and Mitchell Marsh recovering from ankle surgery, Aaron Hardie could feature in Australia’s playing XI for the third Test against South Africa. The all-rounder has been in the limelight since his stupendous performance in last year’s Sheffield Shield final. He scored 174 runs batting at number 7 for Western Australia. He has also done well for Australia A during the Sri Lanka tour.

Australia has another option
Another option that Australia can consider is to keep Michael Neser at No.7 and move Alex Carey to No.6. Neser had previously opened the batting for Queensland in that position as a bowling all-rounder. The hosts can also consider playing a second spinner at the Sydney Cricket Ground, which has been very spin-friendly. In this, Adam Zampa, Ashton Egger and Todd Murphy will compete for all three playing eleven.
