Mitchell Marsh, the Australian all rounder who had to return home after suffering a shoulder injury will be missing the entire tenth season of the Indian Premier League. With sources close to the team also claiming he could be out for as many as nine months from cricket, which means it is a huge setback for Australia as he will also be missing the Champions’s trophy.

The 25-year old pacer would be getting diagnosed next week by specialists. He is not a first time offender, he left midway last year during the IPL and in 2009 for side strain on both times.

Now, he could also face the brunt of a shoulder reconstruction that would keep him out of the game for the remainder of 2017. Cricket Australia tweeted today that Marsh faces a lengthy absence due to injury.

The official Australian physiotherapist David Beakley said, “Mitchell has been playing with a shoulder injury for most of the summer, which we have been managing up until now, but unfortunately it has progressively deteriorated to a point where he is unable to function at the level required.”

He will dearly be missed in the Supergiants outfit as he brings big hitting along with the wicket taking ability to the table, which is priceless for any team.
