He is one of the most important player for Cricket Australia. The Australian team management would like to have him on their tour of the Caribbean next month.
Alex Kountouris, Cricket Australia Sports Science and Sports Medicine Manager said,”Mitchell experienced some pain over his left abdominal area whilst batting at a training session with his team Pune in the IPL a few days ago.”
Alex Kountouris added,”He missed his teams next game and the pain has not resolved.
“Marsh had scans in India that suggest he has a side strain injury and will now return home for further assessment and treatment ahead of the tour of the West Indies. Once we have a better understanding of the extent of the injury we will be able to advise on his return to play time frames.”
Mitchell Marsh played only 3 matches in IPL 9 and picked up 4 wickets at an economy rate of 5.00. Usman Khawaja will join RPSG camp in few days as a replacement for Faf du Plessis.
Rising Pune Supergiants will play their last home match in Pune against Mumbai Indians on Sunday.
