Due to Australia’s cautious approach in the lead up to the T20 World Cup, Mitchell Marsh will be sidelined for the remainder of the one-day international series against Zimbabwe as well as the matches against New Zealand after suffering a minor ankle injury.
Mitchell Marsh will miss the rest of the ODI series against Zimbabwe and matches versus New Zealand after suffering a slight ankle injury, with Australia taking no chances ahead of the T20 World Cup. According to cricket.com.au on Tuesday, the all-rounder was suffering from “ankle soreness” following the five-wicket victory against Zimbabwe in Townsville on Sunday. The match took place on Sunday.
Marsh is anticipated to be well in time for Australia’s Twenty20 tour of India, which will take place one month prior to the World Cup being played on Australian soil.
Wicketkeeper Josh Inglis will return from England to take over for the 30-year-old, but he will not arrive in time for the second One-Day International that will take place against Zimbabwe on Wednesday, which will also take place in Townsville.
Steve Smith, another member of the team, commented to the media that “it’s upsetting for Mitch, but there’s some very crucial stuff coming up.”
“He played a significant role in our T20 World Cup campaign the previous year, and I have no doubt that there are huge plans in store for him this year.”
“The aim is to get him right for that,” Smith said of Marsh, who was Australia’s hero when they defeated New Zealand in the T20 World Cup final the previous year. “The priority is to get him fit for that,” Smith said.
After completing the series against Zimbabwe, the team will travel to New Zealand for three one-day matches beginning on September 6. All of these matches will take place in Cairns.
