Australia's Glenn Maxwell has the highest strike rate 190.66 at the World CupMore

Peter Handscomb could be jettisoned into Australia's team to face South Africa after Shaun Marsh was ruled out of the Cricket World Cup and Glenn Maxwell injured in a horror net session.

"Unfortunately, the scans have revealed Shaun has suffered a fracture to his forearm which will require surgery".

"This is obviously shattering news for Shaun and the squad".

"Shaun Marsh has had scans on his right forearm", Australian coach Justin Langer said.

"Throughout this tournament, his spirit, professionalism and the way he has competed has been typically outstanding".

Gauff, 15, wins again at Wimledon
At 1-3, 15-40 down, Rybarikova managed a good hold that could have given her a boost and thrown her much younger opponent off. Cori "Coco" Gauff is headed to Wimbledon's third round after beating Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round on Wednesday.

Wicket-keeping: Though Quinton dee Kock could well be one of the best wicket-keepers in the world right now, Alex Carrey's ability to bat down the order and score runs at a brisk rate should be enough for him to be picked for this role.

The 35-year-old Shaun Marsh played two matches in this tournament and scored a total of 26 runs (average 13.00). On the same day, Maxwell got a hit on his right forearm when he was facing a short delivery from the left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc.

Peter Handscomb has already been called into the squad as a replacement player, set to make the five-hour trip from Brighton in Australia A camp. Hailing from Pakistan, Tahir started his global career in the 2011 World Cup for the Proteas.

The decision to bring Handscomb in comes after he was unlucky to miss selection in the original World Cup squad.

While Maxwell was cleared of serious injury, the news was not so good for Marsh.

Nick Kyrgios Bamboozles Rafael Nadal With Two Surprise Underhand Serves
Johnson won fewer total points (150-149), earned fewer service breaks (3-2) and made almost twice as many unforced errors (45-25). Johnson's best Grand Slam showing was a fourth-round run at the All England Club in 2016, which ended with a loss to Federer.

Former captain Steve Smith was also nursing a sore pinky finger after slips fielding practice, and stopped a few balls into his net session to get strapping on his hand, Australian media reported. Langer feels that Maxwell will be fit ahead of their next game.

Maxwell, who was yelping in agony as medical staff rushed in to inspect the damage, may yet play a part in the dead rubber against South Africa on Saturday but Marsh's World Cup is over.

It sure has been an all-round show from Australia and they will not want any slip-ups going into the semi-finals.

When the World Cup schedule was announced, there was a thought that this game - the final group match - might prove pivotal in deciding which sides qualified for the semi-finals. Apart from suffering a defeat against India, Australia have won all their other seven matches of this tournament.

A win over South Africa would nearly certainly mean Australia lock in a semi-final against New Zealand at the same ground, which might be preferable to the prospect of an England semi-final at Edgbaston given the hosts' return to form.

Of those who watched or followed news coverage, 41 percent said Harris performed the best in the debates. The ABC News/Washington Post poll found 45% of respondents believe Biden is best equipped to beat Trump.

But Tahir, while confident the Proteas would not initiate any "sledging" regarding Smith and Warner, said South Africa would not take a backward step if there were any "verbals" from Australia.
