Cricket Australia (CA) has issued an update on injury to their batsman Shaun Marsh through the team’s physiotherapist Alex Kountouris on Friday. Marsh had suffered a left elbow injury during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Marsh played for Kings XI Punjab in IPL.

“Shaun had surgery on his left elbow to reconstruct the ligament and the surgeon has reported that everything went well. He will now wear a brace for a period of time and will then commence rehabilitation on the joint, which is anticipated will take approximately three to four months to recover.  We believe having the surgery now will still allow him time to recover and play for Western Australia and with the view of him being fit and available for Australian duty again mid-summer,” Kountouris was quoted as saying by the official website of Cricket Australia.

Marsh will miss the Champions League T20, Australia’s tour of Zimbabwe and the home series against South Africa later in the year. Marsh is hopeful of a December return to play for Western Australia.
