Australian allrounder Mitchell Marsh let frustration get the better of him and injured his right hand after hitting a dressing room wall at the WACA (Western Australia Cricket Association) stadium.
The incident occurred following Marsh’s dismissal on the final day of the Sheffield Shield match between Western Australia and Tasmania.
Resuming batting in the second innings of the game on the final day, Marsh could just add two runs to his overnight tally of 51 before being out caught and bowled by Jackson Bird in the opening over. The match subsequently ended in a draw.
A WACA statement said: “Marsh sustained the injury when he struck the wall in the change rooms following his dismissal earlier in the day. The extent of the injury and a time frame on his return will be determined later this week after further investigation.”
Western Australia take on Victoria next on Friday and it is unlikely that Marsh, their skipper, would be available for that match.
Marsh will hope to be fit in time for the two-Test series against Pakistan at home in November. He made an impressive return to Test cricket when he claimed a maiden five-wicket haul in the final Ashes Test match this year.
