Cameron Green Shares IPL Experience with MI
As the Indian Premier League enters its final leg of the group stage, Mumbai Indians (MI) are looking to break into the top four. With the team returning to their fortress, the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Cameron Green, who has been a key player for the team, said they will take the learnings from their first ten matches and give it their all.
Green, who opened the batting for MI in the last match against Chennai Super Kings, has also had success at no 3 for the team. When asked about his batting position, he said, “Absolutely happy playing the role that the captain thinks is best for the team. I am absolutely loving my time with Mumbai here, and I’m happy to bat anywhere.”

In their last match at home, MI recorded the highest-ever successful chase at the Wankhede. The team’s bowling group had discussed strategies for what can sometimes be a very flat wicket and will be better prepared in the upcoming games. “We know how good the Wankhede wicket can get sometimes. It can be ruthless for bowlers sometimes, so it is important to back our strengths. We know we have got some world-class bowlers in our team, and we are going to back them all the way.”
With a deep batting line-up, MI has come out all guns blazing in the Powerplay and Green-backed the team to take the same approach for the rest of the tournament. “Our discussions have been to play the same way. Being aggressive in the Powerplay is something that might come off sometimes and not come off at other times. The clear messaging from the coaching staff has been to show intent. We have got some incredibly experienced guys in the top order around me in the form of Ishan, Rohit, and Sky.”
Statement from Green
Playing in the tournament for the first time, Green has loved every single minute of his time with the MI family. “My experience in the IPL has been incredible, and Mumbai has treated me beautifully. Hopefully, I can repay the faith.”
MI will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their next match in Mumbai. The team is currently placed fifth in the points table and a win against RCB will take them to the top four. RCB, on the other hand, are placed third and will look to consolidate their position at the table with a win.
With just a few matches remaining in the group stage, every match is crucial for the teams in the IPL. Fans of both MI and RCB will be eagerly looking forward to the match, which promises to be an exciting encounter between two strong teams. The Wankhede Stadium is expected to be packed with fans cheering on their favorite teams. Cricket enthusiasts will also be glued to their screens to catch all the action.
With so many strong teams competing against each other, the next matches before the final teams are confirmed for the playoffs are sure to be exciting.
