Manchester, Jul 5 (IANS) | Publish Date: 7/5/2019 12:59:01 PM IST

Left-handed Australia batsman Shaun Marsh has been ruled out from the ongoing World Cup with a fractured forearm. Wicketkeeper-batsman Peter Handscomb has been named as his replacement and it has also been approved by ICC’s technical committee and will join the Australian squad for the remainder of the tournament. Marsh suffered a fracture to his forearm which will require surgery after being struck while practicing in the nets at the Old Trafford.

“This is obviously shattering news for Shaun and the squad,” cricket.com.au quoted coach Justin Langer as saying. “Throughout this tournament, his spirit, professionalism and the way he has competed has been typically outstanding.”

“We are right behind Shaun in his recovery and rehabilitation,” he added.
