Shaun Marsh's availability for the first Test against South Africa next month may have been clouded by injury.

Marsh tweaked his hamstring while batting for Western Australia during the Matador Cup against Tasmania on Saturday.

The 33-year-old had reached a half century at that point and batted on to make 70 in Western Australia's successful chase before being bowled.

The batsman was seen with a bandage on his thigh after the match.

Marsh is on return from a finger injury that forced him from the Test tour of Sri Lanka.

Despite playing just the one Test on that tour out of three, Marsh was Australia's fourth-highest run scorer for the series, with scores of 130 and 23 across the solitary match.

The first Test of the summer begins in Perth on November 4.
