ICC Cricket World Cup 2023: Australia’s Mitchell Marsh out of WC indefinitely


ICC Cricket World Cup 2023: Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has returned home for personal reasons. He is out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 indefinitely.

According to the International Cricket Council (ICC), the Australian all-rounder flew home from India on Thursday due to personal reasons and there’s no certainty that he will continue the tournament.

Australia’s star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is already not playing Saturday’s match against England due to injury. And now, Marsh’s sudden exit from the World Cup tournament has caused a major setback to the Aussies as they look to seal their place in the semifinals.

Cricket Australia said a timeline on Marsh’s return to the squad “is to be confirmed” and it was not immediately clear if a replacement player would be called up to the squad should his absence be prolonged.

The five-times champions face holders England in Ahmedabad on Saturday before pool stage encounters against Afghanistan and Bangladesh later this month.

Maxwell and Marsh replacements

According to the ANI news agency, Alex Carey, Sean Abbott, Marcus Stoinis and Cameron Green will be in contention to replace Marsh and Maxwell for the match against England while spinner Tanveer Sangha is travelling with the team as a reserve.

All-rounder Marcus Stoinis is set to return to the line-up after shaking off a calf problem while Cameron Green is likely to step in for Marsh.
