Australian batsman Shaun Marsh will undergo surgery on his left elbow on Monday ruling him out of cricket for the next three to four months.
CA Physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said: "Shaun suffered left elbow ligament damage during the IPL. These types of injuries aren't common with cricketers and generally heal with time but unfortunately Shaun's injury hasn't recovered as well as we would have liked.
"After seeing a specialist yesterday we decided the best course of action would be for Shaun to have surgery to stabilise the joint. The surgery is quite significant and it will take approximately three to four months to recover but we believe having the surgery now will still allow him time to recover and play for Western Australia this summer with the view of him being fit and available for Australian duty mid-summer."
