IPL 2016: Fresh injury blow for RPS as Mitchell Marsh ruled out of the season with side strain

New Delhi: Injury-ravaged Rising Pune Supergiants on Sunday suffered another blow after their Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was ruled out of the IPL due to a side strain.

Marsh joined Kevin Pietersen and Faf du Plessis in the list of injured Pune players, who have been forced out of the IPL.

"Mitchell experienced some pain over his left abdominal area whilst batting at a training session with his team Pune in the IPL a few days ago," Cricket Australia Sports Science and Sports Medicine Manager Alex Kountouris said in a statement.

"He missed his team's next game and the pain has not resolved. He had scans in India that suggest he has a side strain injury and will now return home for further assessment and treatment ahead of the Qantas Tour of the West Indies.

"Once we have a better understanding of the extent of the injury we will be able to advise on his return to play time frames," he added.

Marsh had played only three matches for Supergiants' so far, taking four wickets at an economy of 5.

The struggling team had brought in Australian Usman Khawaja after Pietersen and du Plessis were ruled out. With Marsh's injury, Pune now have two empty slots in the line-up.
