Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has been ruled out of the game against Pakistan on Wednesday, 12 June, in Taunton because of a side strain, and Mitchell Marsh is coming to the Cricket World Cup as cover.

Stoinis picked up the injury in the loss to India on 9 June at the Oval. He claimed two wickets, notably a brilliant caught and bowled against Mahendra Singh Dhoni, and earned Virat Kohli's, caught in the deep. In Australia's chase, he was out for a second-ball duck.

Stoinis hasn't been replaced permanently in Australia's 15-man squad.

Marsh was due to arrive in England at the end of the week as part of an Australia A tour of the counties, building up to the Ashes.
