Australia all-rounder Cameron Green, who made his debut in the 3rd ODI against India on Wednesday, has said that he was taken aback by the friendliness of India wicket keeper-batsman KL Rahul when he arrived on the crease.

Green had come in to bat at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on Wednesday when Australia was in a spot of bother at 117/3 in the 23rd over.

He revealed that he was a little nervous to start off with but India wicket-keeper KL Rahul shared a few words that made him feel welcome.

“I was actually taken back with how nice KL Rahul was behind the stumps. He asked me whether I was nervous or not and I just replied saying ‘Yeah, I was a little bit nervous’. He was like ‘Yeah, go well youngster’ type of thing. So I was actually a bit taken back,” Green said at the post-match presser.

He also added that he was expecting a bit of a hostile reception from the Indians and particularly Virat Kohli, and therefore was even more surprised by the friendly gesture of KL Rahul, which he said that he will always remember.

Will remember Rahul’s gesture forever, says Green

“I thought it would have been pretty opposite because (while bowling), I think Virat was trying to be pretty loud at the time. Finchy tried to get under his skin with a couple of words. So yeah, I was a bit taken back with how nice that was. I’ll remember that forever,” Green said.

Green had a pretty average day on the field where he bowled four overs and conceded 27 runs without taking a wicket. With the bat, he scored 21 off 27 with a four and six, before he was caught by Ravindra Jadeja off the bowling of Kuldeep Yadav.

Cameron Green became the 230th player from Australia to play one-day international cricket for his country and received his cap from former captain and team-mate Steve Smith.
