Rising Pune Supergiants all-rounder Mitchell Marsh will return home from the Indian Premier League (IPL) with a side strain and will be assessed ahead of Australia’s tour of West Indies next month, Cricket Australia said on Sunday.
Mitchell Marsh’s injury came as a third big blow for RPS as Kevin Pietersen and Faf du Plessis have already been ruled out for the remained if IPL 2016.
“Mitchell experienced some pain over his left abdominal area whilst batting at a training session with his team Pune in the IPL a few days ago,” CA sports science and sports medicine manager Alex Kountouris said in a statement.
“He missed his team’s next game and the pain has not resolved. He had scans in India that suggest he has a side strain injury and will now return home for further assessment and treatment ahead of the tour of the West Indies.”
Mitchell Marsh featured in three of Supergiants’ games, picking up four wickets at a frugal economy of 5.00.
