Australia’s Marsh returned home from the World Cup due to personal reasons

Australia’s Marsh returned home from the World Cup due to personal reasons, All-rounder Mitch Marsh has returned home for personal reasons and has been ruled out of the One-day World Cup indefinitely, Cricket Australia said on Thursday.

His absence is another blow ahead of the weekend’s clash with England in Ahmedabad after Glenn Maxwell was concussively ruled out after falling from a golf cart.

“The timeline for his return to the squad is to be confirmed,” Cricket Australia said on Twitter of Marsh.

It is unclear whether any replacements will be called up in the 15-man squad.

The 32-year-old, Australia’s T20 captain, has been in good form at the World Cup, scoring 225 runs at 37.50 so far.

A brilliant 121 in an opening partnership of 259 with David Warner against Pakistan gave him a boost.

With both Marsh and Maxwell ruled out, either Marcus Stoinis or Cameron Green look set to face Jos Buttler’s struggling England, who have won just two of six so far to top the 10-team standings. Games are won.

Australia, currently ranked third, have won four matches in a row after a slow start to their campaign.

Maxwell is unavailable under concussion protocol after falling off the back of a buggy in the dark after playing a round of golf on Monday as players took a break during the marathon tournament in India.
