Ind vs Aus 2022 – Injured Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis to miss T20Is in India

Australia has taken a cautious approach in the lead up to the defense of their men’s T20 World Cup title, with Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis left out of the upcoming T20I tour of India with what are being dubbed “low injuries”.

While Marsh was ruled out of the second and third ODIs against Zimbabwe, as well as the three ODIs against New Zealand due to an ankle injury, Stoinis sustained a side injury during the second ODI against New Zealand. And just before the team’s departure to India, Starc’s injured knee was added to the list.

When Marsh returned home, there were indications that he would be available for the India tour, but it was decided that given the journey involved with the short trip, the trio would be better off staying at home.

“Selectors believed that with three games in six days in three cities – including travel to India and internally – Marsh, Stoinis and Starc are best left in Australia to prepare for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup,” a statement said. from CA.

David Warner was already rested from the tour and Cameron Green got a shot in the T20I format, meaning the team playing in India will look very different from Australia’s first pick once all the injuries are gone.

But Australia has a run of games left before the tournament when they return home, with two against the West Indies and three against England, before playing India again in a warm-up match in Brisbane.

Marsh has locked himself up as the No. 3 after his excellent form last year, including the match-winning performance in the T20 World Cup final, while Stoinis was a key part of the mid-range and Starc a central figure in the bowling attack.

Stoinis’ absence opens up a spot for Tim David, the only new face in Australia’s T20 World Cup squad, to make his debut in India as he looks to work his way up to the first XI for the tournament. If everyone is fit when the World Cup starts, someone from the title-winning side will have to be left out to accommodate David.

“One of the rare things he has, of which there aren’t many in Australia, is just pure power,” Glenn Maxwell said of David at the launch of the Australian World Cup kit on Wednesday. “He’s able to amplify the ball in much the same way Stoinis and Mitch Marsh do. They’re power hitters, and he [also] has a lot of power.

“He’s probably developed his game a bit in the last two years where he got a little more offside, so he’s not a one-dimensional batter; he’s able to clear the line in several areas. He’s up against spin and quicks that is something that is really impressive, and something that also impressed me during the IPL [while] to see him go his way.”

Other players who could now have a chance in India include Josh Inglis, a likely opener alongside Aaron Finch who is out of form, and Green, who impressed in recent games against Zimbabwe and New Zealand. Green has only played 14 T20s in his career so far but recently confirmed a BBL deal with Perth Scorchers when he would be available this season.

Ellis, meanwhile, might have come close to a spot in the original squad after his impressive form in the T20 Blast and the Hundred, but he couldn’t force his way past Kane Richardson. Abbott was outstanding when he was called up to the ODI side for the last two games against New Zealand, taking combined figures of 4 for 32 from 15 overs.

Sams, who has spent his off-season with Mumbai Indians, Essex and Trent Rockets, was a reserve for the final T20 World Cup alongside Ellis.
