Australian opening batsman Shaun Marsh who scored a century on his return to Test cricket has been ruled out of the rest of ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka with a broken finger.
Marsh suffered the injury on his left little finger in the third ODI in which he could just score 1 run. It was also the farewell match for the Sri Lankan great Tillakaratne Dilshan who will retire from international cricket after this series.
“Shaun suffered an injury to his left little finger whilst fielding in the match yesterday,
“An x-ray after the match confirmed a fracture and Shaun will now return to Perth to allow time for this to heal.” David Beakley, the team physiotherapist, said.
Usman Khawaja, the other left-handed batsman who was dropped after failing in the first two Test matches has been recalled to Sri Lanka for two T20Is which will be played on September 6 and 9.
This injury comes as a big headache for Marsh as this injury might lead to him missing some matches for Australia and we may see him getting dropped if some other player is able to overtake him
