Australia captain Marsh gives injury update ahead of T20 World Cup

Sports Scene


Australia captain, Mitchell Marsh, has declared himself fit and ready to go for the start of his side's ICC Men's T20 World Cup campaign.

"Yeah, look, initially we thought it was a three-weeker," said Marsh, "But with tendons, they can take a little bit longer and you've sort of got to go on feel. Once I was ruled out of the IPL, we've certainly taken our time to get right. And I feel lucky that I've had that bit of extra time, a little bit of time at home to refresh, like all the other boys that have arrived today, I'm absolutely raring to go."

The all-rounder injured his hamstring during the early stages of the Indian Premier League and has not played at any level since failing to trouble the scorers at the start of April for the Delhi Capitals against eventual champions Kolkata Knight Riders.

But, with the start of the T20 World Cup less than a week away, Marsh appeared to be in good form when joining a group of his teammates during training in Trinidad on Sunday and will be fit to take on Oman in their tournament opener in Barbados on June 5.
