India vs Australia 2017: Marcus Stoinis Named Mitchell Marsh’s Replacement For Remaining Tests
All-rounder Marcus Stoinis has been named as the replacement of injured Mitchell Marsh and will join the squad soon ahead of the 3rd Test match at Ranchi. Earlier, Marsh injured his right shoulder and was ruled out of the remainder of the series.
Mitchell Marsh, who has a prolonged issue with his shoulder, was again made to suffer and miss out on a glorious chance of making a mark on the ongoing India tour.
Marcus Stoinis recently made headlines for blasting a near match-winning score of 146 off 117 balls against New Zealand in the Chappell-Hadlee series in February. His knock came at the time when Australia, while chasing 287, were struggling for 54/5. The right-handed batsman showed character and racked 11 sixes and nine boundaries to help his side reach close to the total but couldn’t see them home.
His innings was regarded as one of the better displays by an all-rounder in recent past. For that, he caught the attention of selectors and has now been rewarded a chance to tour India ahead of Moises Henriques, who was tipped to be Marsh’s replacement.
Australia lost the second Test against India by 75 runs. The two teams will now square-off in the third Test at Ranchi from March 16.
Australia’s Squad For 3rd & 4th Tests:
Steven Smith (c), Matthew Wade (wk), David Warner, Matt Renshaw, Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Swepson, Josh Hazlewood, Steve O’Keefe, Nathan Lyon, Jackson Bird, Mitchell Marsh (released).
