India defeated England in their first practice match. Now he has to face Australia in his next practice match. Before this match, good news seems to be coming for Australia, while it will be a matter of concern for India. Australia’s best all-rounder Marcus Stoinis may return; he can be seen bowling.
Stoinis was suffering from a muscle injury, so he could not play in IPL-2021. He plays for Delhi Capitals in IPL. He has batted only after his return. On Monday, he scored 28 runs in 23 balls in the warm-up match against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi. Now Stoinis has said that he can be seen bowling in the next warm-up game against India.
Marcus Stoinis Said this
Stoinis said after the match, “I didn’t bowl today, but it’s going well. I think it is on the right track, and I am ready. I think I can bowl in the next match.” It will be a significant relief for Australia to bowl Marcus Stoinis. In the practice match, Australia had played four main bowlers and all-rounder in the form of Mitchell Marsh, who proved to be very expensive.
Stoinis batted at number five and shared a 48-run partnership with number four batsman Steve Smith. On the collaboration with Smith, Marcus Stoinis said, “I think it was a great start. We haven’t played together for a while. It was good to get the first win. We both tried some new things.”
