In the midst of the second Test match between Australia and West Indies, all eyes focused on the versatile Aussie cricketer Cameron Green. Despite grappling with the challenges posed by a positive COVID-19 test, Green has demonstrated unparalleled commitment by actively participating in the red-ball game at Adelaide.
However, amidst the serious tone of the match, a lighthearted and cheeky incident managed to captivate the minds of cricket enthusiasts. The delightful moment involved Green and the skilled pacer Josh Hazlewood, adding a touch of humour to the intense contest.

Mentioning about the game, the formidable Aussie bowling attack wreaked havoc on the West Indies batting order right from the beginning.

However, despite losing the wickets at constant intervals, Kavem Hodge and Joshua Da Silva held the anchor of their side, crafting a resilient 146-run partnership for the sixth wicket. Their efforts propelled the side to a score of 266/8 by the end of Day 1.
