Due to a slight ankle injury, Mitchell Marsh will be sidelined for the remainder of the ODI series against Zimbabwe and the matches against New Zealand.
Australia is being cautious in front of the T20 World Cup. Following Zimbabwe’s five-wicket loss in Townsville on Sunday, the all-rounder complained of “ankle pain,” according to cricket.com.au on Tuesday.
Marsh is anticipated to be healthy for Australia’s next T20 tour of India, which takes place before the home World Cup.
Josh Inglis, the 30-year-replacement, will return to England but won’t be there in time for Wednesday’s second ODI against Zimbabwe, which will take place in Townsville.
Teammate Steve Smith told reporters, “It’s upsetting for Mitch, but there’s some very big things coming up.”
He played a significant role in our T20 World Cup campaign the previous year, and I’m confident he has huge things in store this year.
The goal is to get Marsh ready for that, Smith said of Marsh, who was Australia’s hero in their crushing victory over New Zealand in the T20 World Cup final a year ago.
Following the series against Zimbabwe, three one-day matches against New Zealand will begin on September 6 and take place in Cairns.
