“He had the injury through the summer, he was fine when he got here, but it just got worse. I was really happy with the way he played the second innings in Pune. It’s unlucky for Mitch, and we move to whoever the next person comes in. Whether we go with Usman Khawaja or Glenn Maxwell or whoever is selected, we’ll wait and see.”
The Australian cricket team physio revealed, “”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. Consequently, he will return to Australia to consult with specialists to advise the best course of action.”
The next Test will be an interesting one for both teams, which will start on March 16 in Ranchi.
