Pace bowling all-rounder Mitchell Marsh will not bowl again this season. A scan on Friday revealed that Marsh has a lower back stress injury.
A part of the Aussie ODI squad, Marsh is now out of the Commonwealth Bank triangular series. The Aussie selectors have not yet announced a replacement for him.
Australian physio Alex Kountouri said, “Marsh complained of pain in his lower back after bowling at the nets on Thursday. He had a scan on Friday and the results revealed a lower back stress injury of the bone.”
The 20-year-old Marsh bowled well in the second twenty20 game against India in Melbourne but could not break into the ODI side in the ongoing tri-series with another pace-bowling all-rounder Daniel Christian coming up with solid displays with the bat and the ball.
Mitchell Marsh, the younger brother of Sean, who has had a horror run with the bat this season, has figured in three twenty20 internationals and an ODI for Australia.
Australia's No. 1 all-rounder Shane Watson is gradually getting into first class cricket after being kept out by a calf injury.
