A frustrated Mitchell Marsh injured his bowling hand after slamming the dressing room wall with his fist on the final day of the Sheffield Shield fixture between Western Australia and Tasmania.
The Western Australia skipper made 53 in his side's second innings and was dismissed in a tame manner as he lobbed the ball back to paceman Jackson Bird.
While the game ended in a draw, Marsh seemed unhappy with his soft dismissal and channelled his frustrations on the changing room wall.
The 27-year-old, who was recalled to the national side during the Ashes series in England, is expected to be unavailable for the upcoming clash against Victoria starting Friday.
"Western Australian captain Mitch Marsh injured his hand during (Sunday's) Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania at the WACA ground," the team statement read.
"Marsh sustained the injury when he struck the wall in the changerooms following his dismissal earlier in the day. The extent of the injury and a time frame on his return will be determined later this week after further investigation."
Western Australia are yet to name the player who will perform the captaincy duties in the absence of Marsh.
