Western Australia announce two changes to their squad for Marsh Sheffield Shield
Western Australia has announced two changes to their 13 player squad for their Round 2 Marsh Sheffield Shield match against Victoria at the WACA Ground starting tomorrow.
Captain Mitch Marsh will miss four to six weeks with a hand injury, while Joel Paris is out with a hamstring strain.
Aaron Hardie comes into the squad for potentially his second first-class match, while fast bowler David Moody returns as another seam option.
Head Coach Adam Voges said Shaun Marsh will captain the side in his brother’s absence.
“Shaun has captained WA before and I’m confident he’ll do a good job leading the team again,” he said.
“It’s a shame to lose a couple of guys to injury, but it provides an opportunity for others to step up.
“There were some good signs with both bat and ball in our first Shield match against Tasmania and we’re looking forward to building on that against a strong opposition.”
