Sydney: Australia allrounder Mitchell Marsh is in doubt for the remainder of the one-day tri-series after suffering a lower back injury.

Marsh, the younger brother of Test batsman Shaun Marsh, complained of significant lower-back pain during Thursday's training session at the Sydney Cricket Ground. He was not included in the lineup for Friday's one-dayer against Sri Lanka.

Team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said medical scans indicated a lower-back bone stress injury and further tests in Melbourne on Saturday will help determine the rest period.
