‘I’ve been through it, it’s tough’: Warner’s verdict on playing Green in IPL | Cricket

Australian all-rounder Cameron Green has confirmed his participation in the mini-auction for the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL). Earlier speculations were rife that the 23-year-old would not take part in the Indian league and would devote his energies to playing for his country. Green said IPL would help him gain world-class exposure and improve his skills in the game. However, Australian opener and teammate David Warner has warned the youngster of the burnout and the heavy toll the Indian conditions will have on his fitness and form.

“Nineteen consecutive weeks in India, and also being your first trip there, can be quite challenging – from the point of view of the heat, the game, the recovery,” Warner told the West Indies ahead of Australia’s Test series .

“I’ve been through it, I’ve done the Test Series and the IPL. It is difficult. Then you have five test matches in England in the background. Then I think you have 20 days off before you go to South Africa and then go to a World Cup,” he added.

Citing teammate Glenn Maxwell’s example, Warner said “Glenn Maxwell did it a few years ago, played all year and then got cooked into the (Australian) season”.

However, the Australian opener was quick to add that Green’s decision will be respected by the players and it was up to him and the Australian cricket board to decide the best.

“From a young person’s point of view, it’s entirely up to him, it’s his decision to make. For the longevity of him and his career, it’s a big call for him as a youngster. Whatever decision he makes, we will respect it as players. But in the end it’s up to him and CA”, Warner concluded. The IPL 2023 mini-auction will take place in Kochi on December 23, 2022.
