Ahead of IPL 2024, Australia all-rounder Cameron Green has been traded to Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs. 17.5 crores. Green made headlines in Australia's tour of India before the T20 World Cup 2022. In those 3 matches, he scored 118 runs and scored two half-centuries.

In 16 IPL matches, Cameron Green has scored two fifties and one hundred. The youngster, being traded to Royal Challengers, has boosted their confidence as they aim to win their first IPL trophy in 17 years. Here are 3 reasons why Cam Green is a great buy for RCB:

1. Great debut season in IPL

Australian all-rounder Cameron Green was picked by Mumbai Indians for Rs. 17.5 crores in the mega auction of IPL 2023. In 2023, he played 16 games and scored 452 runs with an average of 50.22. In that season, he scored two half-centuries and a century. He helped Mumbai Indians to reach the playoffs of the IPL 2023. With the ball, he picked up 6 wickets and was used as the 5th and 6th bowler for the team. Ahead of IPL 2024, he was traded to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). For RCB, it’s a good trade as their top order has now become strong with Cameron Green coming into the squad. In his debut season, he adapted to the Indian conditions quickly. Cameron Green's full potential can be used by RCB for their trophy quest. 

2. Perfect all-rounder

Cameron Green was a part of the most expensive all-rounders in the IPL 2023 auction. He is a fast-bowling all-rounder. For Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023, he got 6 wickets with an average of 60.17. Having him in their team, Royal Challengers Bangalore has a good batter and bowler depending on the situation of the pitch and their opponents. Meanwhile, in the ongoing Test match against New Zealand Green is in good form as he has scored 174 runs and remained not out. It's a good thing for RCB ahead of the IPL 2024.

3. Future Investment

Cameron Green was a part of the investment for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023, but Hardik Pandya returning to the side was a big move for the Men in Blue and Gold. To make this trade, they let go of Cameron Green to RCB. For RCB, this will be a good move as captain Faf du Plessis might not be retained after IPL 2024 due to his age factor. Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell both are 35 years old as well. For the next IPL, Cameron Green can be retained alongside with Virat Kohli Mohammed Siraj and Glenn Maxwell. Cameron Green's investment in RCB is a future investment if Faf du Plessis retires Cameron Green may open the batting attack.
