Speaking on SEN WA in Perth on Wednesday night, Green explained that the recovery timeline will be tight ahead of Australia’s first Test of a four-game series against India on February 9 in Nagpur.
«[It’s] it’s going well. He had a successful surgery in Sydney and the surgeon is really happy with his progress. I think he did Tim Paine’s successful surgery, so it gives me a great sense of confidence.
“There are two weeks of rehab, then two weeks to start running and move the shoulders and back to check again if they’re frozen. Then a ball, probably at the four-week mark, and see how that works. Try and hold a cricket bat and see how it feels. At the moment [the finger] It feels really good, it’s painless, so it gives me some confidence that in four weeks everything will be fine. We will meet [as a team] In Sydney for the Allan Border Medal [ceremony]Then we set off for India the next day.»
The Allan Border Medal ceremony will be held on January 30. The plan for Australia’s Test team was to hold an optional three-day training camp prior to their India tour in Sydney to coincide with the event. The team will then travel to India and do seven days of middle goal training without a warm-up match before the first Test.
That was about ten days between Green’s first time holding a ball and bat and playing in the first Test in India, with two days lost to travel.
Prior to the IPL auction on December 23, a written letter was sent to IPL dealers stating that Green would not be able to bowl for four weeks after the end of the fourth Test on March 13.
However, Green was unaware of where this correspondence originated and stated that it was wrong and could have been bowling for the Mumbai Indians from the beginning of the IPL.
«No, that’s not true,» said Green.
“I’ve been hearing this for quite some time. I don’t know where it’s coming from. We talked to the Selectors.
“I heard initially that I was 100% available for both skill sets in IPL, so yeah, I’m not quite sure where that comes from.
«Obviously my first priority is the pre-Test series, getting myself right for the first Test.»
Green was excited to join the Mumbai Indians with his three Western Australian friends, Tim David, Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff.
«Great,» said Green.
“The Mumbai Indians feel a bit more homey than Australia. There are more people from WA playing in the Mumbai Indians than in the Australian team. I think that’s the ideal situation where I hope to be on a really good team. The players around you and a great captain, great technique. He’s the director and it’s a great team, but frankly, it’s great to have these four guys from WA.»
