SYDNEY, July 7: Australian Twenty 20 International player Mitchell Marsh has been sent home from the Centre of Excellence in Brisbane for disciplinary reasons, Cricket Australia said on Saturday.

The 20-year-old West Australian all-rounder was ordered home to Perth after being declared unfit to train on Saturday following a night out, CA said in a statement.

“While the incident in isolation was not serious, he was already on a final warning,” CA said. “As such, it was decided he should be sent home to Perth.”

Marsh re-signed with Western Australia this week despite reports he was looking to move interstate because he was unhappy with WA's initial contract offer.

The powerful middle-order batsman and medium-pacer has represented Australia in three Twenty20 Internationals and one one-dayer.
