Mitchell Marsh, the Western Australia allrounder, has been sent back home to Perth from the Centre of Excellence as a disciplinary measure. Marsh was found "unfit to train" on Saturday after a night out.

"While the incident in isolation was not serious, he was already on a final warning," a Cricket Australia release said. "As such, it was decided he should be sent home to Perth."

Marsh, 20, who has played three Twenty20 internationals and one ODI for Australia so far, was named one of the stand-out Australian players to watch out for by Shane Warne earlier in the year. He captained Australia U-19 to victory in the U-19 World Cup in 2010, and was part of the Perth Scorchers side that made it to the final of the Big Bash League. But a stress injury to his back in February this year meant he had to miss the rest of the domestic season.
