Australia all-rounder Mitch Marsh will not be available for his side’s start of the cricket summer at home after he punched a wall and fractured his bowling hand. The incident took place during the Sheffield Shield encounter between Western Australia and Tasmania.
Marsh, who captains Western Australia, was dismissed for a score of 53 by Jackson Bird. When he reached the pavilion, he took out the frustrations of his dismissal on the dressing room wall and slammed it with his fist.
As a result, Marsh was subject to agonizing pain and severely bruised his right hand. He has been ruled out of cricket action for four to six weeks, which means he will not be taking part in the first Test against Pakistan scheduled to commence on November 21.
