Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was on Saturday ruled out of the fourth Test against India at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), starting January 6, 2015.

Injury had forced Mitchell Marsh off the field during the second session of second Test against India. The Australia all-rounder, limped off with an injury in the right hamstring just moments into the second session of play in Day One.

Bowling from the Vulture St end, he went down in pain in his follow through. Marsh buried his head in his hands and soon his brother, Shaun Marsh was by his side offering him support, reported cricket.com.au. Moments later he was seen limping out of the Gabba and Cricket Australia later confirmed he was suffering soreness in his right hamstring.

Marsh has faced a series of problems with his left hamstring and had to undergo surgery in 2012 to treat the issue. This time however, it is the right hamstring causing trouble. His most recent injury to the left hamstring occurred during the Champions League T20 in September, where he was representing his home side, Hobart Hurricanes. The injury caused him a delayed entry into the Australian squad touring of UAE.
