Fit-again Marsh relishing tri-nation series
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC):
All-rounder Mitchell Marsh says he has fully recovered from injury and is relishing his return to the Australian side for their tri-series campaign in the Caribbean starting this week.
Marsh is part of the Australian squad arriving in the Caribbean after stopping in New York on Monday to reduce the impact of jet lag on their performances during the tournament which also involves South Africa.
Australia start their campaign in the tri-nation tournament against West Indies on June 5.
"We've had a chance to get out and about and see what the city has to offer but we're still focused on our task at hand over the next month and we're looking forward to getting to Guyana first."
Marsh, 24, is a fast bowler who can hit 140 kph and has shown promise as a lower middle-order batsman.
A side strain forced him out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year but now the budding all-rounder says he is ready to perform in Australia's busy schedule in the coming months.
"It was a very minor injury, but a side strain is one of those things where you can turn a ten-day injury into a ten-week injury just like that, so it was best that I came home," said Marsh, who had to restrict his campaign with Rising Pune Supergiants.
