Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis and Mitch Marsh sidelined for T20 World Cup warmups in India

Injuries forced three key members of Australia’s upcoming Twenty20 World Cup title defense to withdraw from the three-game streak with India, starting Tuesday.

Mitchell Starc (knee), Marcus Stoinis (lateral) and Mitch Marsh (ankle) will not travel to the subcontinent and have been replaced in pink by Nathan Ellis, Daniel Sams and Sean Abbott.

The injured trio will stay in Australia to prepare for the home World Cup, which begins next month.

Australian handyman Glenn Maxwell, meanwhile, backed Aaron Finch to return to batting form before then, with the Indian series as the skipper’s platform.
