Left-arm spinner is still recovering from a calf injury while Mitchell Marsh could return as a batsman-only

Perth Scorchers spinner Ashton Agar is unlikely to be available for the BBL finals, which could jeopardise his availability for Australia’s T20 tour of New Zealand in February, as the rehab from his calf injury is taking far longer than was originally forecast.

Allrounder Mitchell Marsh will also be unavailable for Saturday’s clash with the Sydney Sixers after suffering a side strain in the win over the Hobart Hurricanes and won’t be able to bowl again in the tournament. However, Marsh is expected to return to play as a batsman only.

Agar originally injured his calf while batting for Australia during the third ODI against India in Canberra on December 2 and missed the three-match T20I series that followed and the start of the BBL season. He also suffered a fractured finger in the ODI series but the calf is the main issue.
