Marsh out for season as Aussies await scans

11th July 2018, 14:13 by Simon Barlow

Shaun Marsh is returning to Australia for further assessment on a shoulder injury that has ended his county season with Glamorgan.

The 35-year-old batsman was hurt while trying to stop a boundary for Glamorgan during a Twenty20 game last week.

Australian cricket officials will want to get to the bottom of the issue as Marsh's international experience has become even more vital in the wake of the bans handed down to David Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft.

Australia are due to tour the United Arab Emirates in October when new coach Justin Langer will lead Baggy Green into a Test series against Pakistan.

Although the schedule for the trip is yet to be finalised, it is likely that Marsh will have around 12 weeks to rest and recover from ligament damage and disruption in his AC joint.

However, his involvement would be put in doubt if follow-up scans in Perth deliver bad news and it is decided he requires surgery to repair the ligaments.
