Australia are currently playing a two-match Test series against the West Indies. They scored 293-2 on day 1 of the Test match. Even though Ricky Ponting is commentating in the Test Match over there, he has other ideas racing through his mind. That Cameron Green will be one of the most sought-after players in the Indian T20 League auction was reconfirmed by Ricky Ponting.

While talking to current Australian coach Andrew McDonald about Cameron Green this is what he said to McDonald, "Maybe not here on-air but Keep your phone on tonight. I'm really interested to have an Indian T20 League conversation with you about Cam Green cos I freed up a fair bit of money for Delhi Capitals this year. I wanna low-down on how much he's gonna be available. The fans will love him," Ponting talked about the same on the post-lunch show.

Everyone in Australia speak highly of the Indian T20 League

Ponting in reality had loosened Delhi’s purse strings by letting go of Shardul Thakur, Mandeep Singh, Ashwin Hebbar, KS Bharath and Tim Seifert. Delhi have a big purse of 19.45 crore and this can aid them in getting Green into the Delhi ranks. He will be a person who will have a big impact with both bat and ball.

"Speaking to a lot of guys, especially in the WA (Western Australia) set up about their experiences in the Indian T20 League, they speak so highly of it. They speak about the quality coaches that you are around, the quality players that you are around. They are all the best in the world at their craft. It is a craft that I have not been exposed to too much. I am so open to wanting to learn as much as I can and that is probably one of the best environments to learn in," said Cameron Green to cricket.com.au.

All-rounders are scarce in the Indian T20 League and so someone like Cameron Green will be a major hit among the teams. A player like him will change games in the Indian T20 League with the bat and ball. Green, who is a tall quick bowler, can get the extra bounce on offer on the surfaces in India and can trouble batters with his height.
