Australia vs New Zealand 3rd ODI 2022

Marcus Stoinis has been ruled out of the last ODI against New Zealand, and there will be no final outing for the David-Warner-Aaron Finch opening combination when Warner is released from Australia’s squad to manage his workload. was given.

Stoinis will miss the final game of the series Chappell-Hadlee with a low-level side stride. He will return to Perth to try and recover in time for a brief T20I tour of India, with the contingent departing next weekend, but easing a side strain in a short period of time could be problematic.

Fast bowler Nathan Ellis, who has played three One Day Internationals, has been included in the squad for the last match in Cairns on Sunday.

Warner’s release from the team means Finch will have a different opening partner for his final ODI after his retirement on Saturday. The pair would end up as Australia 4th most prolific pair With 3788 runs including 12 centuries.

Marnus Labuschagne could be an option to go with Finch. Josh Inglis, who has replaced Marsh, is an additional batsman in the squad, while Cameron Green could be available again after missing out on a second game after a cramp in the first game.

Stoinis is the second injury Australia have suffered from their all-rounder in the past few weeks, with Mitchell Marsh suffering a minor ankle injury at home after the first match against Zimbabwe, although there were signs he would be available for India . Travel

In the second ODI on Thursday, Stoinis dismissed James Neesham but after winning the match, he was out of the field.

While most of the focus has been on Finch’s struggle of form, Stoinis’ comeback has also been tremendous. Since the start of the 2019 World Cup, he has scored 308 runs in 19 ODI innings at 17.11.

Both Stoinis and Marsh were important parts of Australia’s T20 World Cup success last year. Marsh cemented himself as the team’s No. 3 – despite missing out on a loss against England – and Stoinis went on to become a middle-order finisher alongside Matthew Wade. The pair also offer easy pace-bowling options. However, going forward in this year’s tournament, the question remains how Australia can fit Tim David in their side.
