Australia's Concerns about Marsh and Warner's Fitness

Australia is grappling with concerns over the fitness of all-rounder Mitchell Marsh and opener David Warner. The looming T20 World Cup is primarily the cause of these concerns. Marsh is expected to lead the team, while Warner will feature as the opener. With a major tournament on the horizon, Australia's thoughts are somewhat preoccupied.

Due to a hamstring injury, Marsh has been sidelined from the IPL. He is currently in Australia, and whether he will return to India as part of the Delhi Capitals remains uncertain.

However, Australia is not willing to take any risks with the 32-year-old cricketer. They are cautious about the leadership role in the upcoming T20 World Cup. "We are happy and comfortable with the way he is leading the T20 team. We believe he will lead in the World Cup. I think there is a little time and a few things left," said a team official.

Marsh has amassed 20, 23, 18, and 0 in his four innings for Delhi. Despite the leadership role in the T20 World Cup, Australia hopes Marsh will maintain his batting prowess.

Meanwhile, Warner suffered an injury scare while batting for Delhi Capitals in Friday's IPL match. Signs of discomfort were evident as he walked off the field against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

His fitness will be closely monitored by the concerned authorities. Warner is expected to take the field against Gujarat Titans next Wednesday. Australia, as an IPL franchise, will want Warner to be fit and firing for their upcoming matches.

As Australia gears up for the impending T20 World Cup, there is speculation about Warner partnering with Travis Head as the opening pair.
