Mitchell Marsh is out of the PAK vs AUS ODIs due to a hip flexor injury. Mitchell Marsh’s commitment to the IPL is also in jeopardy right now.
Australia are facing a major setback after all-rounder Mitchell Marsh injured his hip flexor. He is expect to miss the upcoming ODI series against Pakistan. This will be a huge blow to Aaron Finch’s side, who will already be missing Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood due to IPL commitments. While Mitchell Starc will miss the limited-overs leg against Pakistan.
Marsh was a standout performer in Australia’s World T20 2021 title-winning campaign. Has been in excellent form in recent times, including the recent BBL season. He pick by the Delhi Capitals at the mega auction for INR 6.5 crores and was supposed to be available on April 6, but that is now in doubt as well. Cameron Green is expect to take Marsh’s place as Australia’s all-rounder, with Marcus Stoinis also in the squad.
Aaron Finch: Mitchell Marsh hip flexor injury, I don’t believe, will be available for the series
Australia’s limited-overs captain Aaron Finch mentioned Marsh’s injury during training and state that the 30-year-old is likely to miss the ODIs based on how things have been going so far. He went on to say that the injury occurred during a fielding drill when Marsh bent down to pick up the ball and throw, injuring his hip flexor in the process.
“We believe he injured his hip flexor during training.” We’ll have to wait and see what that looks like, but based on how he felt yesterday, I don’t think he’ll be available for the series,” Finch said in Lahore on Monday, according to Cricbuzz.
“He got that (injury) during a fielding drill.” “It was a high-intensity, lateral movement drill, and he bent down to pick it up one-handed, went to throw, and felt a twinge,” he explained.
Australia, having won the three-match Test series in Pakistan 1-0, will now look to win the one-day international series, which begins on March 29th at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
