Australia's horror run of injuries has continued in the Indian Premier League, with Shaun Marsh the latest player to be sent home.
Quick Single: Smith ruled out of the IPL
Marsh has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament with a back injury he picked up during the six-wicket loss to Kolkata Knight Riders on April 19.
Marsh made an unbeaten 56 in that match and has reportedly carried a back niggle ever since.
Quick Single: Pune's injury curse continues as Marsh exits
Unlike brother Mitchell and Smith, Marsh is not part of Australia's squad for the upcoming tour of the West Indies.
If selected, his next international assignment will be Australia's tour of Sri Lanka in July and August.
It's a huge blow for the struggling Kings XI franchise, who remain rooted to the bottom of the ladder despite yesterday's impressive win over league leaders Gujarat Lions.
Marsh missed Punjab's opening match of the tournament when he was hospitalised with food poisoning, but in the six matches since scored 159 runs at 31.80 – the highest average for the club.
The IPL injury ward has already claimed marquee players Kevin Pietersen (calf), Faf du Pluessis (finger), Lasith Malinga (knees), John Hastings (ankle) and Samuel Badree (shoulder).
