Marcus Stoinis deemed fit to play in the Champions Trophy

Aussie allrounder Marcus Stoinis has been declared fit for the ICC Champions Trophy and will travel with several members of the Australia squadto the UK.

Stoinis, who was forced to leave his stint with Kings XI Punjab in the IPL early due to a shoulder injury, was passed fit by team support staff. 

After undergoing scans in India, he headed to the NCC for rehab in a bid to prove his fitness for the upcoming ODI tournament. It was confirmed today that the 27-year-old has done exactly that, with a Cricket Australia spokesperson saying "he bowled today and medical staff were happy with his progress".

Australia's first match in the tournament is against the Black Caps on June 3 in Birmingham. 

Stoinis had a disappointing time of things in the recent IPL, playing five matches and contributing just 17 runs with the bat from three innings, while also taking two wickets. 

He will now head to London alongside the squad's Australia-based players, while those currently in India will arrive after their respective IPL campaigns end.
