Pune Supergiants suffer blow in injury to all-rounder Marsh

Mumbai, May 1 (IANS) Injury-ravaged Rising Pune Supergiants suffered another blow after Cricket Australia on Sunday advised all-rounder Mitchell Marsh to return home from the Indian Premier League (IPL) with a side strain.

Cricket Australia sports science and sports medicine manager Alex Kountouris said in a statement: “Mitchell experienced some pain over his left abdominal area whilst batting at a training session with his team Pune in the IPL a few days ago.”

“He missed his team’s next game and the pain has not resolved. He had scans in India that suggest he has a side strain injury and will now return home for further assessment and treatment ahead of the Qantas Tour of the West Indies.”

“Once we have a better understanding of the extent of the injury, we will be able to advise on his return to play timeframes.”

Pune, who have only two wins from seven games, also have had two key batsmen Kevin Pietersen and Faf du Plessis sidelined for the rest of the tournament due to injuries.

Pune face Mumbai Indians in the Maharashtra derby later in the day.
