Mitchell Marsh has seen a complete circle in the last couple of years for Australia. The flamboyant all-rounder has delivered goods against England in Ashes Trophy and then stormed himself into the leadership group. But, later, he failed to repeat his mojo either with the ball or bat to survive in the Test circuit for the national team.

His miserable summer has got worse with the allrounder needing surgery following a blow to the groin in training, officials said. The latest surgery will see him missing the Sheffield matches until the start of the eighth round.

The 27-year-old, who has been dropped from the Australian Test, one-day and Twenty20 teams, was struck during a net session in Perth ahead of Western Australia’s Sheffield Shield clash with New South Wales.

Meanwhile, speaking of the injury, Western Australia official quoted that they will look after him closely before taking a call for Round 8 of the tournament. He revealed that it was a minor surgery but the impact would remain for a period of time.

“As a result of the impact, Mitch has undergone a minor surgical procedure and he won’t be available for this upcoming Shield fixture,” WA official Nick Jones told the Cricket Australia website late Wednesday.

“Mitch’s recovery will be monitored closely over the coming week before a decision can be made around his availability for the Round 8 Shield match.”

I will keep fighting – Mitchell Marsh

He has been removed from the team for the series against Sri Lanka and called Marcus Stoinis to replace him. Meanwhile, the youngster doesn’t want to lose hope on his return to the Test fold, as he wants to keep the fight for the spot.

“It’s disappointing to not be there (after getting dropped). But I saw that one coming. I’ve been knocked around a bit this summer. But my dream of playing Test cricket is still not over. I’m only 27. I’ll keep fighting,” he signed off.

Well, it would be interesting to see how Mitchell Marsh will cope up with the rehab process. He needs to get back and perform in the Shield matches in order to press his case for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019.
