Mitchell Marsh Returns to Australia with Hamstring Injury, Raising World Cup Concerns

Delhi Capitals' all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has returned to Australia to address a partial tear in his right hamstring. The injury has raised concerns about his availability for the upcoming T20 World Cup, where he is expected to lead the Australian team.

Marsh, who has been a key player for the Capitals, missed the team's last two matches against Mumbai Indians and Lucknow Super Giants. His last appearance was on April 3 against Kolkata Knight Riders, where he was dismissed for a duck.

According to ESPNcricinfo, Marsh's recall to Australia was coordinated between Cricket Australia (CA) and the Delhi Capitals franchise. The decision was made after careful consideration of the injury's severity and the potential impact on Marsh's World Cup preparations.

CA has been closely monitoring Marsh's workload over the past year, as he has returned to playing in all three formats of the game. His impressive performances earned him the Allan Border Medal as Australia's best-performed player across all formats.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Capitals are also dealing with an injury concern involving David Warner. The opener was hit on the finger while attempting a lap shot against Lucknow Super Giants. Warner underwent scans upon arriving in Ahmedabad, where the Capitals will face Gujarat Titans in their next match on April 17.

The Capitals currently sit on four points after six games and will be hoping to have both Marsh and Warner available for their upcoming fixtures. However, the final decision on Marsh's IPL participation will be made after further assessment by CA and the franchise.
