On Day 2 of the final Test match between Australia and England at Hobart, Cricket Australia have decided to release Mitchell Marsh, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Swepson and Michael Neser from the Australia team.

The players will return to their respective Big Bash League teams as the tournament enters its business end.

Marsh and Inglis will return to Perth Scorchers who are in desperate need of replacements after losing their top players to Covid-19, while Micheal Neser would be a great addition to Adelaide Strikers, who are looking to push for the playoffs spots.

The four are scheduled to take a charter flight from Hobart to Melbourne on Sunday, 16 January to enter the Big Bash bubble. Marcus Harris and paceman Jhye Richardson will remain with the national team.
