Big blow for Australia as key player out of World Cup indefinitely


Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has flown back home in the middle of the World Cup due to personal reasons.

Marsh who flew to Perth on Wednesday is set to be unavailable for an indefinite period as Cricket Australia said there is no confirmation on his return yet.

“Mitchell Marsh has returned home from the ICC Men’s World Cup for personal reasons. A timeline on his return to the squad is yet to be confirmed,” said CA on Thursday.

The 32-year-old has been in decent form at the World Cup, compiling 225 runs at 37.50 so far. That was boosted by a classy 121 in a 259-run opening partnership with David Warner against Pakistan.

His absence comes as a major setback for Australia who will already miss the services of Glenn Maxwell for their next match against England in Ahmedabad on Saturday. Maxwell fell from the back of a golf cart and suffered bruises in a free accident. He is concussed and set to be under observation.
