Mitchell Marsh returns home with shoulder injury


Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out of the rest of the ongoing four-match Test series against India due to recurrence of a shoulder injury.

"Consequently he will return to Australia to consult with specialists to advise the best course of action", he said.

The series stands level at 1-1 after India's dramatic 75-run victory in Bengaluru on Tuesday with the penultimate test starting in Ranchi on March 16. He has yet to play at Test level but now looks set to make his debut as Marsh continues to recover from a shoulder injury.

"No (it wasn't a gamble to select Marsh given his injury).it was fine when he got here but it's gotten worse".

Moises Henriques looms as the frontrunner ahead of Marcus Stoinis.


"I thought he played really well in the second innings in Pune", Lehmann said.

"It's unlucky for Mitch and we move to whoever the next person who comes in. Whether we go with Usman Khawaja or Glenn Maxwell or whoever is selected, we'll wait and see".

However, the 27-year-old may not be drafted in the playing XI as Marsh's replacement with Australia having spin-bowling allrounders in Ashton Agar and Glenn Maxwell. "We've got a break, it's been a long summer and we've come here with the challenge of retaining the trophy first and foremost, we're very close but not good enough".

Marsh was an integral part of the Australian set-up although he was ineffective with the bat in the first two Test matches of the series, getting out cheaply in both the Test matches.
