PERTH, Australia: Allrounder Mitch Marsh could be in doubt for the early part of Australias home summer season after being ruled out of the rest of the Indian Premier League season with an ankle injury.
Marsh twisted his right ankle on his follow-through in the Hyderabad Sunrisers match with Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday in Dubai and could not finish bowling his first over. Marsh came out to bat later in the match, but was out first ball and had to be helped off the field. The Royal Challengers won by 10 runs.
Australian media said Thursday that Hyderabad team officials confirmed that Marsh has been ruled out for the rest of the IPL season.
Australia will play four tests and three one-day internationals against India beginning in November.
Marsh had just rediscovered his fitness and form over the past year to work his way back into Australias Test, ODI and T20 squads.
