Sydney: Perth Scorchers young gun will not play in the Champions League T20 tournament in India after being ruled out with yet another hamstring injury.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Scorchers coach Justin Langer said 22-year-old Marsh sustained the injury during Australia A`s tour of South Africa and then re-injured the hamstring during training, and was expected to be out for eight to 10 weeks.

Veteran Brad Hogg will be included in the line-up, and Langer said that while it would be a tough tour, the enthusiasm of youth could not be discounted, the report said.

He said that the main advantage of their team was that it was pretty united and there was a lot of enthusiasm in the group.
