All-rounder Marcus Stoinis is now fit to make a comeback for the remainder of Australia’s World Cup campaign having recovered from a side strain but coach Justin Langer is not sure of his immediate return, reports hindustantimes.com.
Langer said there is no guarantee of Stoinis, who missed the last two World Cup games due to injury, being a part of playing XI in Thursday’s clash against Bangladesh. ((ICC World Cup 2019: Full Coverage))Stoinis suffered the injury while bowling in the match against India on June 9 which Australia lost by 36 runs.
“We’ve been monitoring him. He’s an elite athlete, he’s an elite professional. He’s done everything possible to get himself fit. He wouldn’t give up the opportunity for anything, would he?” Langer was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia official website cricket.com.au.
“He (Stoinis) is determined, so it doesn’t surprise me with where he’s at now. It’s a credit to him, it’s a credit to the medical staff that are getting him up. So hopefully he can have a real impact on the tournament,” added Langer.
