Western Australia all-rounder Mitch Marsh is set to miss to the entire summer after undergoing surgery to repair his torn hamstring tendon.
Marsh suffered the injury in last Saturday's Ryobi Cup clash against the Redbacks and scans revealed he had torn 90 percent of the tendon off the bone.
The 21-year-old had surgery in Melbourne on Wednesday and will return to Perth early next week to commence his rehabilitation.
"It is expected that he will be sidelined for approximately 12 to 16 weeks," a WACA statement read.
The injury caps off a disappointing month for Marsh after he and brother Shaun were disciplined following a boozy night out in Cape Town while playing for the Perth Scorchers in Champions League Twenty20 tournament.
