Today was the first time watching him where his form replicated how he looks in the Shield. The foot movement was less rigid from ball 1 and some of the shots he played where just *chef's kiss*
It's pretty hard to not go all in on the hype at the moment when the ceiling is a Smith/Warne/Ponting generation defining player
He had some luck here and there but his hands are quick and supple enough that when he's half-beaten the damage is minimal - I thought Joe Root bowled quite well at stages tonight but Green was able to narrow his focus and neutralize the stump-to-stump attack in greasy conditions with sheer hand-eye co-ordination.
Might yet do some damage with the ball himself on this wicket, just needs to bowl within himself a bit if anything.
