Most players are however still busy with the IPL 2024. One such player is Australia’s new T20 captain Mitchell Marsh. Marsh is playing for Delhi Capitals in the IPL.

However, the Australian cricketer hasn’t been able to play in his matches since April 3 due to a right hamstring strain. 

He was flown home from the IPL to Perth on April 12 to do his initial recovery with Australia team physiotherapist Nick Jones, who is also based in Perth.

Marsh opens up about Injury

Speaking up about his Hamstring Injury, Marsh said that he is disappointed about the drawbacks it brings. He is recovering and is hopeful for the T20 World Cup.

“The hammy is good, it’s coming along really well,” Marsh said. “It’s pretty much exactly where we want it to be. It’s one of those things. Just got to get it right over the next three weeks and get on the plane.

“If we had to play tomorrow, I would be in a bit of trouble. Still a couple of weeks away, and the timing probably sits perfectly barring any setbacks.”

Marsh on the 15-player squad for T20 World Cup 2024

Speaking about the T20 World Cup squad for Australia, Marsh shared that some players have to get left out because of the limited number of spots in a team. 

“Anytime there’s a World Cup team picked, there’s only 15 and some guys have to miss out,” Marsh said. “But I think we’ve got a really great squad that we’ve picked, we’ve got a lot of versatility, a lot of experience. And that brings a lot of excitement.”

Australia are holding two separate training camps in Brisbane across each of the next two weeks for the players who aren’t playing in the IPL. Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa, Ashton Agar, Josh Inglis and Marsh will head there to get some nets and fitness preparation done before heading to the Caribbean. Marsh is a chance to be at both camps but would likely be on light duties for the first one.
