Mitchell Marsh likely to be fit for tri series

Mitchell Starc is back in Australia’s ODI setup and he was named in Australia’s squad for the tri-series to be played in the Caribbean also featuring the West Indies along with South Africa. A 16 man squad was named by the Australian selectors and another noticing point is the inclusion of off-spinner Nathan Lyon for the tri-series in the Caribbean.

“Mitchell has progressed very well in his rehab and the medical staff are confident he will be fit to play in this series,” Chairman of selectors Rod Marsh said. “It is extremely pleasing to have a bowler of his calibre back in the side.” “Nathan has bowled very well in the West Indies in the past and we are predicting we will see some slow turning pitches,” Marsh said. “Adam has impressed us in India during the World T20 and has bowled consistently well, and with confidence, when given his opportunity.”

Uncapped left-hander Travis Head too was named in the squad, and he was backed by Marsh. “Travis has put in some match-winning performances in all three formats of the game this summer,” Marsh said. “He is an exciting young batsman with a bright future and if he gets his opportunity I have no doubt he will make the most of it.”

Australia squad for the West Indies Tri-series : Steve Smith (c), David Warner (VC), George Bailey, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, John Hastings, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa
