Frustrated Mitchell Marsh injures bowling hand after punching dressing room wall

Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh injured his bowling hand after punching the dressing room wall during a Sheffield Shield match on Sunday.

The 27-year-old right-hander was leading Western Australia against Tasmania in Perth. Mitchell Marsh scored a half-century in Western Australia’s second innings, but was caught and bowled by Jackson Bird soon after that.

After the match ended in a draw Mitchell Marsh took his frustrations out on the wall and reportedly fractured his hand.

“Western Australian captain Mitch Marsh injured his hand during (Sunday’s) Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania at the WACA ground,” a statement from the team said.

“Marsh sustained the injury when he struck the wall in the changerooms following his dismissal earlier in the day. The extent of the injury and a time frame on his return will be determined later this week after further investigation.”

Western Australia will next take on Victoria in the Sheffield Shield on Friday. It’s still too early to comment if Marsh would be fit for a place in the squad for the two-Test series against Pakistan, starting on November 21 in Brisbane.
