Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out of Australia's next five ODIs against Zimbabwe and New Zealand.

Marsh played in the opening match of the North Queensland-based ODI series against Zimbabwe on Sunday, but is said to be suffering from a "minor" ankle complaint which has seen him withdrawn from the squad.

It's understood that he will only miss the five ODIs to be played over the next week and a half, and will be fit to take on India in Australia's next series, which is a three-match T20 campaign away from home and begins their final preparation of eight matches in the shortest format before the World Cup - to be held on home soil - gets underway.

Australia have called Western Australian wicket-keeper batsman Josh Inglis into the squad for the remaining five matches, with focus to shift to Cairns and the touring New Zealand side after Zimbabwe wrap up their series in Townsville.

Inglis is unlikely to be the direct replacement for Marsh though, with Marnus Labuschagne already in the squad and missing the opening ODI as Australia ran with an all-rounder-heavy playing XI.

It means Labuschagne will likely come straight into the side and bat at three, with Steve Smith moving down to number four.

The other options will be to play either Ashton Agar or Sean Abbott, who sat on the bench alongside Labuschagne for the series opener.

Inglis had been in England where he was playing for the London Spirit in the Hundred, however will now rush back to Queensland for the ODI series.

The second game of the series against Zimbabwe will be played on Wednesday, before the third and final is set down for Saturday.
