Mitchell Marsh will not bowl in the first match of T20 World Cup, the Australian captain is not fully recovered!

There is a growing concern in the Australian team before the start of the T20 World Cup. Its captain Mitchell Marsh, who often suffers from injuries, is once again suffering from injury. However, his injury is not very serious and as a precaution, he will not bowl in the opening match of the World Cup.

Australia is to start its World Cup campaign against Oman on 6 June. The team’s chief coach Andrew McDonald said that Marsh will not bowl in this match and will only come on the field as a batsman. The Kangaroo team will then play against defending champion England on 9 June. It will be interesting to see then whether Marsh will still keep himself away from bowling or he will take up this responsibility if needed.

Marsh played in the Indian Premier League before this tournament. He was playing for Delhi Capitals in this league where he suffered a hamstring injury. He has almost recovered from this injury but as a precaution, he will not bowl against an ordinary team like Oman. Before this, he also played practice matches against Namibia and West Indies, in both these practice matches he scored 18 and 4 runs.

McDonald told Cricket com AU that he played practice matches to test himself, in the second practice match he fielded for a longer period, which will boost his confidence. He will play the first match but will not bowl.

Australia’s Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Cameron Green and Travis Head did not play in the second practice match against West Indies as they are yet to arrive here after the IPL.
