Why is Mitch Marsh not playing today’s 2023 World Cup Match?
Mitch Marsh absence is due to personal reasons that have compelled him to fly back home.
Australia’s captain, Pat Cummins, expressed the team’s sentiments regarding the absence of both Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh, two players who have been pivotal for the team at various points in the tournament. Cummins acknowledged that losing these two star players is far from ideal, especially considering their valuable contributions.
In the case of Mitchell Marsh, Cummins assured that he would return to the squad for the final stages of the tournament. Although the exact timeline is uncertain, Cummins doesn’t anticipate a lengthy absence for Marsh. The team is committed to giving him the time and space he needs to attend to his personal matters.
Regarding Glenn Maxwell, who is dealing with a concussion after an unfortunate incident involving a fall from the back of a golf cart, Cummins provided an update on his condition. He mentioned that there is hope for Maxwell’s return in the upcoming match against Afghanistan. Maxwell has been training well, and the team is taking his recovery one day at a time.
Australia acknowledges the challenges posed by the absence of these two star players and is prepared to adapt to the situation as they face England in their next crucial match.
Therefore, Mitchell Marsh won’t be part of the Australian lineup for the match against England due to personal reasons, but he is expected to rejoin the squad for the final stages of the ODI World Cup.
