Australia cricketer Shaun Marsh is likely to play in the second One-day International (ODI) against South Africa on Friday after having surgery on an abscess on his buttock, team mate Alex Carey said on Wednesday.
“He is pretty positive that he’ll be right for Friday. Shaun obviously (in the) last series over in England was sensational, he scored two hundred for us. So for SOS (Marsh) to come in at three and probably play a bit of an anchor role around some of those top-order explosive players ... it’s a little bit of stability up the top, hopefully,” vice-captain Carey said.
South Africa had won the first ODI. The third and final ODI will be played in Hobart on Sunday.
