Australia will miss the services of Mitchell Marsh, Mitchell Starc and Marcus Stoinis for India’s three-match T20I tour as the trio were ruled out of the series on Wednesday with injuries. Starc suffers from a knee injury, Marsh has an ankle problem, and Stoinis has a back problem. According to ‘cricket.com.au’, these injuries are not so serious. But Cricket Australia (CA) does not want to take any risk regarding these players.
These 3 players replaced
David Warner has already rested on the tour, which will significantly impact the Australian team. The Australian selectors have included Nathan Ellis, Daniel Sams and Sean Abbott in place of Starc, Marsh and Stoinis. Marsh and Stoinis suffered injuries during the one-day series against Zimbabwe and New Zealand, but Starc was dropped on Wednesday after undergoing a knee scan.
