The 20-year-old Mitchell, younger brother of Australia Test batsman Shaun Marsh, was found "unfit to train after a night out."

"Mitchell Marsh is being sent home from the Centre of Excellence as a disciplinary measure after being unfit to train today after a night out," the CA statement said.

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

The right-handed batsman, Mitchell has played a lone ODI for Australia and three Twenty20 Internationals. He led Australia to Under-19 World Cup victory in 2010 and has also played in the Indian Premier League for Deccan Chargers and Pune Warriors.

He bowls right-arm medium-pace and was bought by Pune for $290,000 in 2011 when his father Geoff Marsh was the coach of the franchise. However, he was ruled out of 2012 edition of IPL due to injury.
