Marsh tears hamstring at WACA one-dayer
By Justin Chadwick
21:45 AEST Sun Nov 18 2012

Mitch Marsh's domestic cricket summer could be over after scans confirmed the talented allrounder had suffered a severe tear to his hamstring.

Marsh sustained the injury while diving to make his ground late in Western Australia's 14-run one-day loss to South Australia at the WACA Ground on Saturday.

The 21-year-old will visit a specialist this week to determine the best course of action, but it's looking increasingly likely he may be sidelined for a significant period.

New Warriors and Perth Scorchers coach Justin Langer was disappointed to see Marsh suffer the injury, but urged the powerful right-hander to focus all of his energies on healing as quickly as possible.

"It's a huge blow for lots of reasons," Langer said of the injury to Marsh, who has endured a turbulent summer after being caught up in the Perth Scorchers' boozy night out in South Africa last month.

"We've got a Shield game and a one-dayer in Tassie next week which he won't be available for.

"Then it's unlikely he'll be available for the Scorchers. He's pushing hard to play Australian one-day and Twenty20 cricket, so it's going to be hard (to push up for selection) if he's not playing."

Langer's coaching debut was an interesting one, with the former Test opener caught somewhat by surprise when Redbacks coach Darren Berry paid him a visit early in WA's run chase.

An animated Berry went to Langer to voice his confusion over the third umpire decision review system currently used in domestic one-day cricket.

Under the current system, the third umpire can review a decision if they see a replay in time and view it as a controversial call.

However, this has created a situation where some batsmen hang around once they've been given out - or trudge off the field extremely slowly - in the hope the third umpire will see a replay in time and then decide to review the dismissal.

"Coaches, players and umpires alike are all pretty confused and frustrated by this system, which was clearly evident on several occasions tonight," Berry said after his team's third one-day win of the season.

"I'm confused. I'm confused. I'm confused."

Berry isn't the only one to express his displeasure.

Tasmania skipper George Bailey described the system as "shocking" and "embarrassing" on Wednesday, while Queensland coach Darren Lehmann brandished the competition's rule book at a television camera during the same game after a decision was reversed on review.
