In December 2023, Green disclosed that he has been battling a serious kidney disorder since birth. Doctors had even predicted that he might not survive past the age of 12. Green admitted that dealing with his condition has been emotionally challenging, especially when he feels like it’s affecting his team.

The Australian all rounder visited a Kidney Speciality Hospital in Bengaluru to meet the patients. He had a long chat with them and gave them some advice.

“You get quite emotional because you kind of feel like it’s all against you. Like, why is it happening now? No one else is being affected by this. You blame yourself a little bit, feel a bit guilty that maybe like (you are) keeping the team back a bit. At times it gets quite emotional,” Green said during a virtual interaction arranged by RCB.

“It’s sometimes challenging, especially in India. Sometimes, it’s limited food options. With my condition, I’ve got to look after my salt and protein. I’ve got to keep that to a minimum around cricket. During (playing) cricket, I can slightly increase my salt volume because obviously, I needed to play cricket.”

Managing his diet has been a key aspect of dealing with his kidney condition. Green has to be careful about his salt and protein intake, which can be challenging, especially in India where food options can be limited. Despite these challenges, Green remains determined to manage his condition and continue playing cricket.

Since making his international debut in 2020, Green has been seen as a future star for Australia across all formats. His resilience in the face of adversity is a testament to his character, and his story serves as an inspiration to many.
