Victoria all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has been cleared to play the upcoming Champions Trophy campaign for Australia after he was declared fit following the shoulder injury that he sustained while playing in Indian Premier League (IPL).

The 27-year-old's stint with the Kings XI Punjab franchise of IPL was cut short after he sustained the injury during training and he headed back to Australia in the final week of April to undergo further assessment.

Australia, who are placed in Group A will lock horns with their trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand on 2nd June following which they will head to Kennington Oval to take on Bangladesh and finally they will face their Ashes rival England at Edgbaston on 10th June.
