Mitchell Marsh is working with Australia team physiotherapist Nick Jones to treat his hamstring injury.

Mitchell Marsh was named the captain of the Australia squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. However, the all-rounder had suffered a blow when he had to fly back home amid the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 due to a hamstring injury.

Marsh was playing for Delhi Capitals (DC) in the IPL 2024 and was scheduled to play the entirety of the tournament. However, he suffered a hamstring niggle and was later called back by Cricket Australia to continue his recovery at home.

Mitchell Marsh made his final appearance in IPL 2024 for the Delhi Capitals on April 3rd in a crushing 106-run loss to the Kolkata Knight Riders in Vishakhapatnam. Marsh strained his hamstring following this game, and he was sidelined for a few games before being flown back to Perth for additional care.  

Mitchell Marsh informed the DC management a few weeks after arriving home that his hamstring injury recuperation was going far slower than he had anticipated.

This resulted in DC confirming Marsh’s withdrawal from the ongoing season and naming Afghanistan all-rounder Gulbadin Naib as his replacement.

Mitchell Marsh provided a significant update on his hamstring injury earlier today. The 32-year-old acknowledged that everything is going according to plan and that he and the Australian team management are happy with the way his recuperation is progressing.

Marsh stated that the World Cup scheduling is ideal for his timely recovery, even though the injury will still require at least two to three weeks to heal completely.

The new Australian skipper also hoped that he would not have any setbacks before Australia’s opening match of the 2024 T20 World Cup against Oman on June 6 in Barbados, .

“The hammy is good, it’s coming along really well. 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.” – Mitchell Marsh told ESPN Australia.

Due in part to Marsh’s hamstring issue, Cameron Green was chosen for the 15-man roster instead of the highly effective Jake Fraser-McGurk. Australia would not have had a pace-bowling alternative in their top seven if Marsh had to play as a batter only or had to be managed in the tournament and something happened to the other injury-prone pace-bowling all-rounder, Marcus Stoinis.
