Profile

Australia's preferred Test allrounder, Mitchell Marsh is a tall fast bowler who can hit 140kph and has shown promise as a lower middle-order batsman. Marsh squeezed Shane Watson out of the side during the 2015 Ashes tour of England and was given time to settle into the No.6 role, although his bowling was arguably the stronger feature of his game during 2015. That had not been the case in his debut Test series against Pakistan in the UAE in 2014, when he scored 87 and 47 in his second Test. In the limited-overs formats, his clean striking makes him an attractive option and he made his maiden ODI hundred against India in Sydney in 2016. A member of the 2015 World Cup-winning squad, Marsh had been earmarked for high honours ever since he captained the Australia Under-19s to victory in the 2010 World Cup in New Zealand. He made his T20 international debut at 19, having enjoyed his first taste of state cricket at just 17. Marsh honed his skills in the Australian dressing room as a child, when his father Geoff was the national coach. Marsh was also a promising junior Australian rules footballer and hails from a prolific sporting family - his brother Shaun is also an international batsman and his sister Melissa is a basketballer for Perth Lynx in the WNBL.
