Young Australian batter Cameron Green was relieved to get to the three-figure mark in his Test career for the first very first time after a wait of 19 Test matches. Green scored his maiden Test ton-114 off 170 balls on day 2 of the ongoing fourth Test between India and Australia at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Since breaking into the Test team, Green has been routed as the next big thing in Australian cricket. He has shown glimpses of his ability with the bat in the past with valuable contributions at home and on tours of Pakistan and Sri Lanka. However, there was a question of him not making a big score. But on March 10, Green played to his potential and hammered the first Test century of his career against India. Prior to this, he had six fifty plus scores in Test cricket without a hundred. Coincidentally, Green’s previous career best of 84 was also recorded versus India.

Making most of the good batting conditions, Green added 65 runs to his overnight score to record a new career best score for himself. He played a loose shot off Ravichandran Ashwin’s bowling to end his brilliant innings. 

“You feel more like a Test cricketer when you’ve got that monkey off your back, so it is nice to tick that off in a way. It’s so special. I think I might have got a bit lucky, I got from 70, to 80, to 90 pretty quickly, so that probably helped a bit, not having too much time to think about it, that’s all. I’ve seen how tough Test cricket is and I’m enjoying every second of it.” Cameron Green told reporters at the end of the day’s play.

Green complimented Usman Khawaja, who was the star for Australia in the first innings with 180 runs, really well and helped Australia post a strong total of 480 in the first innings. Both batters shared a record 208-run partnership for the fifth wicket. In response, Indian openers Rohit Sharma (17*) and Shubman Gill 18* (27) remained unbeaten to see the day off without any early hiccups with 36 runs on the board in 10 overs without any loss of wickets. India are still 444 runs behind Australia’s first innings total.
