India vs Australia 2017: Marcus Stoinis replaces injured all-rounder Mitchell Marsh

Doyle BarkerMar 10, 2017

Mitchell Marsh will be replaced by another all rounder for the on-going India-Australia Test series that is evenly poised at 1-1 after India's heroic win in the Bangalore Test on Tuesday.

Marsh managed to score only 48 runs in four innings he played in India and bowled just five overs, which all came in Bengaluru Test.

A replacement for the 25-year-old is expected to be announced soon.

"Marcus got across the line simply because during Australia A here a couple of years ago, he performed very well", Hohns said.

With the series squared at 1-1, all eyes will now be on the third Test, starting from March 16 at Ranchi.

Stoinis believes his selection would depend on what team balance selectors were looking for but said making a Test debut in India with the series in the balance would be extra special.

"Mitch Marsh will go back to Melbourne with his shoulder".

"Consequently he will return to Australia to consult with specialists to advise the best course of action". Henriques has 659 Sheffield Shield runs at 65.90 this summer and Cartwright has 520 at 37.14, compared to Stoinis' more modest tally of 172 at 15.63.

Coach Darren Lehmann said it was likely that another allrounder would be flown in from Australia to replace Marsh.

"I was confident (Marsh was fit), I thought he played really well in the second innings in Pune where he got 31. Whether we go with Usman Khawaja or Glenn Maxwell or whoever is selected, we'll wait and see", he added.
