Marsh out for 4-6 weeks after punching his own hand
Mitchell Marsh has made himself fall into big trouble as he will be out for at least 4-6 weeks after punching his own hand
Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh might have suffered one of the weirdest injuries in history and the only reason he suffered the injury is only himself.
The all-rounder punched his own hand at the wall after getting out during a Sheffield Shield game. However, Marsh has apologized for his moment of madness and promised to not let that happen ever again.
“It certainly will be an isolated incident, that’s for sure, and it won’t be happening again. It’s a good lesson for me, hopefully it’s a good lesson for other people as well. At the end of the day it’s a game of cricket. Sometimes you get beaten, sometimes you get out, and you can’t be punching walls.”
“As a captain, I’ve done a lot of work in setting a good example on and off the field over the last 18 months since I took over. This is a small hiccup for me. I said I was disappointed in myself and it won’t happen again, and it’s not an example I want to be setting not only for my teammates, but for everyone here at the WACA and everyone else in cricket,” he added.
The injury also means Marsh will miss the start of the Test summer, and there are no guarantees he will win back his spot when he recovers.
