Marcus Stoinis ready to bowl again, Haris Rauf happy to return to the site of hat-trick


Allrounder cleared to bowl against the Adelaide Strikers on Friday night after recovering from a side strain

Marcus Stoinis
is ready to bowl again for the Melbourne Stars having not delivered a ball in the BBL so far this season coming off a side strain.

Stoinis injured his side while bowling for Australia in the first ODI against India on November 27.

He missed the rest of the ODI series and played just one game in the following T20I series as a specialist batsman while still injured, as Australia were severely undermanned due to the loss of both Aaron Finch and David Warner.

Stoinis has played every game of the BBL so far but only as a batsman due to his side issue, but he is set to be available to bowl if called upon by captain Glenn Maxwell when the Stars host the Adelaide Strikers at the MCG on Friday night.

“My body is good,” Stoinis said. “I’m hopeful to be bowling this game. I’m actually fit. I just haven’t been able to bowl at training. We’ve been travelling quite a lot and it’s sometimes hard to get the facilities to bowl. Hopefully, it’s this game, in fact, it will be.”
