Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has pulled out of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 for an indefinite period, while Glenn Maxwell will miss their upcoming match against England due to a concussion injury he sustained. Notably, Mitchell Marsh has returned to Australia.
The precise length of Marsh’s absence is still unknown, and the question of whether a substitute player will be required remains open. These developments have thrown the team’s preparations into disarray, as they must now grapple with the challenge of competing without two key all-rounders in their lineup.
“Australian allrounder Mitch Marsh has returned home from the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup for personal reasons. A timeline on his return to the squad is to be confirmed,” a Cricket Australia statement read.
With both Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell sitting out the next game, there’s a strong chance that Marcus Stoinis and Cameron Green will be given the nod to play for Australia in their upcoming match against England in Ahmedabad.
