Cricket Australia have given an injury update on batsman Shaun Marsh, who on Tuesday underwent surgery in Melbourne on the left elbow he injured during the IPL, ruling him out of cricket for the next three to four months.

CA Physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said: "Shaun had surgery on his left elbow to reconstruct the ligament and the surgeon has reported that everything went well.

"He will now wear a brace for a period of time and will then commence rehabilitation on the joint, which is anticipated will take approximately three to four months to recover.

"We believe having the surgery now will still allow him time to recover and play for Western Australia and with the view of him being fit and available for Australian duty again mid-summer."

Marsh will remain in Melbourne for the next few days while he recuperates and swelling decreases before returning to Perth next week.
