Shaun Marsh the latest Australian to withdraw from IPL with injury



Shaun Marsh has become the third Australian Test player in three days to head home from the Indian Premier League after suffering a back injury playing for Kings XI Punjab.

Marsh’s younger brother, Mitchell, pulled out of the Twenty20 tournament with a side strain on Sunday, with captain Steve Smith following on Monday with a wrist injury.

Left-handed batsman Marsh has been sore since a six-wicket loss to the Kolkata Knight Riders on April 19, Cricket Australia said on its website.

Marsh’s next chance of international duty is Australia’s three-Test tour of Sri Lanka in July and August.

His brother Mitchell and Smith are due to play a triangular one-day tournament in the Caribbean next month.
