Stoinis likely to play against Bangladesh
Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis missed two games in the World Cup so far because of the side strain injury.
Australia receive a piece of good news ahead of the important clash against Bangladesh as Marcus Stoinis is likely to be available for the game after the all-rounder missed last two games due to side strain.
According to reports, Stoinis trained with the team at Trent Bridge and didn’t look in any sort of discomfort. However, head coach Justin Langer said there is no guarantee that he will play the game.
“Not definitely, he’s a chance. It looked like he moved really well batting. We’ve been monitoring him. He’s an elite athlete, he’s an elite professional. He’s done everything possible to get himself fit. He wouldn’t give up the opportunity for anything, would he? ”
“He’s determined so it doesn’t surprise me with where he’s at now. It’s a credit to him, it’s a credit to the medical staff that are getting him up. So hopefully he can have a real impact on the tournament,” Langer said.
It has also been reported that Australia are likely to play with Ashton Agar as they see him as a secret weapon for tackling the man who is in the form of his life, Shakib Al Hasan.
Australia are currently sitting in second position with eight points from five games.
