Taunton — Australia are flying Mitchell Marsh to England as cover for Marcus Stoinis after his fellow all-rounder suffered a side strain that ruled him out of Wednesday’s World Cup match against Pakistan in Taunton.

Stoinis sustained the injury during champions Australia’s 36-run defeat by India at the Oval on Sunday. Australia, however, will wait to decide whether to bring in Marsh as a permanent tournament replacement for Stoinis,— a decision that will require the approval of the World Cup’s event technical committee.
