Scotch College’s Cameron Green makes Australian Test Cricket Team

This Thursday 17 December 2020, Cameron Green (OSC 2016) received his baggy green at the Adelaide Oval at 21 years old.

Cam started at Scotch in 2011 as a Year 7 student. He had already begun to distinguish himself in sport, and was picked for the Under 12 AFL State Team. In Year 11, Cam was selected for the Under 19 State Cricket Team and was a member of both the Scotch 1st XI and 1st XVIII. He received Colours for Cricket in Years 9–11, and in Year 12 was Captain of the 1st XI, a member of the 1st XVIII, and received Honours for both Football and Cricket.



Cam made his List A debut for Cricket Australia against Pakistan in January 2017, shortly after graduating from Scotch, at just 17 years of age. In February 2017, he made his first-class debut for WA in the 2016–17 Sheffield Shield season. Due to a stress fracture in his back, he was forced to sit out the 2017–18 Sheffield Shield season, but then returned in his Big Bash debut for the Perth Scorchers in January 2019 and, in November of the same year, had his breakthrough performance as a batsman playing for Western Australia against Queensland.

In October 2020, Cam was included in Australia’s team for the limited overs match against India, before making his One Day International (ODI) debut for Australia against India on 2 December 2020, before scoring a century for Australia A in a warm-up match. During this time, there had been much talk of Cam getting his baggy green cap, but injuries had made that uncertain.

We are incredibly proud to see Cam overcome his injuries to make his Test debut today.
