The 23-year-old Green, who has played all formats for Australia, is expected to be in high demand among IPL franchises in this month’s auction.
The Australian Associated Press (AAP) quoted McDonald as saying, “His (Green’s) total workload in the next 12 months of cricket, is it a concern?” Yes, I think it is a matter of concern for every player.
He said, “We have talked about it many times. It is imaginary to see how he must be feeling at the end of March. He has a lot of cricket to play before IPL and I am sure he will not take a decision now. A decision on this will be taken before the IPL.
The Australian coach said, “You don’t know how your body is going to feel after three months of playing nine Test matches and then a few limited overs matches at the end of the Indian series.”
IPL 2023 will be held between the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in India (February-March) and The Ashes in England (June-July).
Australia opener David Warner has already warned Green about the challenge of managing his workload.
Australia’s Test captain Pat Cummins has already been ruled out of next year’s IPL due to a busy international schedule.
Lately Green has been troubled by a back injury which has limited his bowling.
