Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, who is currently a part of the Rising Pune Supergiants team in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to return home after picking up a side strain.

In a media release, Cricket Australia (CA) Sports Science and Sports Medicine Manager Alex Kountouris revealed that Marsh suffered the injury during a training session.

Kountouris further added that Marsh will return home to undergo further assessment and get the necessary treatment in order to recover before the tour of West Indies.

“Mitchell experienced some pain over his left abdominal area whilst batting at a training session with his team Pune in the IPL a few days ago, Kountouris said in the CA release.

“He missed his teams next game and the pain has not resolved.

“He had scans in India that suggest he has a side strain injury and will now return home for further assessment and treatment ahead of the Qantas Tour of the West Indies.

“Once we have a better understanding of the extent of the injury we will be able to advise on his return to play timeframes.”

Marsh has only featured in three games for the Rising Pune Supergiants in the ongoing IPL and has four wickets to his name.

This is the third injury blow to the Rising Pune Supergiants, who earlier lost the services of Kevin Pietersen and Faf du Plessis.
