Australia’s all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was frustrated after his dismissal against Tasmania in the ongoing Sheffield Shield. Marsh let out his frustration by smashing his right-hand into the dressing room wall and thereby injuring his bowling arm. The right-hander was dismissed caught and bowled by pacer Jackson Bird after he scored a good knock of 53 runs for Western Australia.

However, Marsh was not happy with himself after the dismissal and could not control his anger when he reached the dressing room. Consequently, Mitchell Marsh will have scans on his right-hand which will determine the extent of the injury.

Marsh lets out his frustration.

Meanwhile, the match between Western Australia and Tasmania ended in a stalemate at WACA Ground in Perth.

“We’re concerned that he wouldn’t have been able to bowl today,” said Warriors coach Adam Voges. “We’ll have to wait and see … all I know is that his hand is sore.”

Paris scored an unbeaten 23 whereas Ashton Agar scored a fine knock of 76 runs to help Western Australia escape with the draw. The pair added 85 runs for the 10th wicket to take the hosts’ to a lead of 323 runs. Western Australia had posted 337 runs in the first innings, which was a decent score according to their coach.

“While 337 in our first innings was a decent first-innings total … no one really put a substantial score on the board,” Voges said.

“We just missed a couple of real opportunities which meant that we couldn’t drive the game coming into today like we would have liked.”

On the other hand, Tasmania had scored 397 runs in the first innings. The Australian skipper Tim Paine got his second first-class century after a long gap as he scored a fine knock of 121 runs. However, the right-hander said that the hundred meant nothing to him as the team could not benefit from it.
