Australia's World Cup campaign has suffered a major setback. Their important player and opener batsman Mitchell Marsh is out of the World Cup. He has gone back to Australia due to personal reasons. Marsh is out of the World Cup indefinitely.
Australia has to play its next match against England on Saturday, but the five-time world champion has suffered a major setback before that. Star all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has returned home due to personal reasons. In such a situation, he will not participate in the match against England.
Cricket Australia issued a statement saying that the all-rounder is out of the tournament indefinitely. It is not clear whether Mitchell Marsh will rejoin the squad or not. The name of his replacement has not been announced yet. Before Marsh, Glenn Maxwell was ruled out of the match against England due to a concussion in a golf-related incident.
Cricket Australia said in its statement, "The date of Mitchell Marsh's return to the squad will be confirmed in some time." Let us tell you that Mitchell Marsh is one of the key team members of Australia. The right-handed batsman had scored a century against Pakistan at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Now two regular members are out of the Kangaroo team. In such a situation, team members Alex Carey, Sean Abbott, Marcus Stoinis and Cameron Green are in contention to replace Maxwell and Marsh for the match with England. Whereas spinner Tanveer Sangha is traveling with the team as a reserve.
