Georgetown (Guyana), June 1 (IANS) All-rounder Mitchell Marsh has said he has fully recovered from injury and is relishing his return to the Australian side for their tri-series campaign in the Caribbean starting this week.
Marsh is part of the Australian squad arriving in the Caribbean after stopping in New York on Monday to reduce the impact of jet lag on their performances during the tournament, which also involves South Africa, reports CMC.
Australia start their campaign against the West Indies on June 5.
"We're obviously extremely lucky that Cricket Australia have allowed us to do that," said Marsh on Tuesday, the son of former Australian cricketer Geoff Marsh.
"We've had a chance to get out and about and see what the city has to offer, but we're still focused on our task at hand over the next month and we're looking forward to getting to Guyana first."
Marsh, 24, is a fast bowler who can hit 140kph and has shown promise as a lower middle-order batsman.
A side strain forced him out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year, but now the budding all-rounder says he is ready to perform in Australia's busy schedule in the coming months.
