Australia calls up Wade, Marsh as injury cover for CWC semis
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Australia has called wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade and allrounder Mitch Marsh into its squad ahead of the Cricket World Cup semifinals as injury cover for Usman Khawaja and Marcus Stoinis.
Khawaja, the No. 3 batsman, is expected to miss the semifinal match against England at Edgbaston on Thursday after injuring his left hamstring in the group-stage loss to South Africa on Saturday. Marcus Stoinis, an allrounder, aggravated a side injury that bothered him earlier in the tournament.
Wade and Marsh had been on duty with Australia’s ‘A’ side in Brighton, southern England.
