Green could be the difference in Pakistan

Former Test captain Greg Chappell believes West Aussie Cameron Green could be the key to Australia unlocking victory in Pakistan.

Speaking on Sports Breakfast Chappell, who played 87-Test matches believes 22-year-old Green could be "critical" for team balance.


Green could allow the visitors to pick two spinners something with Mitchell Swepson or Ashton Agar options to pair up with Nathan Lyon.

“He bowls around the 140-clicks mark, he can get bounce, he knows how to bowl, he bowls good areas... that should give Australia the opportunity to play two spinners if that’s what they need.” Chappell said.


“That’s why you want a player of that calibre, who is not only a quality batsman but can offer you quality bowling."


Green claimed 13-wickets against England in the recent Ashes series and found some form with the bat in the back end of the series.


The first Test against Pakistan begins on Friday.
