SYDNEY:-Australian Test batsman Shaun Marsh faces four months out of action after a specialist on Tuesday recommended surgery for a persistent elbow injury. The left-hander is expected to go under the knife next week which rules him out of the upcoming tours of Zimbabwe and the United Arab Emirates, where Australia face Pakistan on neutral turf. But he should be back for the opening match of the four-Test series against India, which starts in Brisbane on December 4.–AFP
