Domestic Career

Australia Portrait Session

Mitchell Marsh has been playing cricket from a very early age. The eldest of the Marsh brothers, Mitchell made his debut for the Warriors at the age of 17 in February 2009 in a Ford Ranger Cup game at Bunbury. He became the youngest ever player in an Australian domestic one-day game and Western Australia's youngest debutant for 70 years. In April 2009, he was given the opportunity to play for Australia's Under 19s squad against India, in Australia.

He then captained the side in the 2010 Under-19 Cricket World Cup. Marsh led from the front in the tournament and scored 201 runs in the tournament which also included a knock of 97 against Sri Lanka in the semi-final, which helped his team get over the line. Marsh’s side went on to win the finals and with it, the U-19 World Cup title!

In July 2014, Australia A battled against India A at the Allan Border Field. Marsh hit a magnificent 211 runs in Australia A’s first innings. This was his first double ton. He put on a 371-run Australian record breaking partnership with Sam Whiteman for the seventh wicket. At that time, this was also the second-highest 7th wicket partnership in first-class cricket.

In the year 2020, Marsh was signed to play for the Middlesex Country Club in the t20 Blast. But this did not happen due to the emergence of the corona virus. He again signed in 2021 but the same thing happened as Marsh was called up to represt Australia at the international level.

Mitchell Marsh IPL Career

Even before he made his international debut, Mitchell Marsh was roped in by the IPL side Deccan Chargers in 2010 where he played three matches and scalped two wickets.

Marsh was selected by the Sahara Pune Warriors who were coached by his father, Geoff Marsh for US$ 290,000 in the IPL Auction 2011. He played in five matches, scoring a total of 50 runs and taking 7 wickets

Mitchell Marsh International Career

Mitchell Marsh Test Career

In his debut Test series against Pakistan in the UAE in 2014, Mitchell Marsh started off in a fine fashion as he scored 87 and 47 in his second Test. He later played the first two Test matches of the 2014-15 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, before walking off the field due to a hamstring injury on Day 1 of the second Test in Brisbane.

Marsh squeezed Shane Watson out of the Test side during the 2015 Ashes tour and was given time to settle into the No.6 role, although his bowling was arguably the stronger feature of his game during 2015. However, some indifferent form and injuries ensured that he was constantly in and out of the series.

But Marsh made a comeback on the back of strong domestic performances and was selected for the 2017-18 Ashes and showed his true prowess by slamming his maiden test at the WACA in the third Test and ensured that his comeback was a success. Mitchell followed WACA century with another in Sydney with his brother, Shaun, at the opposite end.

In the year 2018, Marsh was imposed a penalty of 20% of his match fee alongwith a demerit point after he used abusive language in the second Test against South Africa.

Marsh was called up for the 2019 Ashes but only featured in the fifth Test of the series. In the match, Marsh picked up his first fifier in Test match cricket with the figures of 5/46 in the first innings. In the month of October of the same year, he missed the start of Australia’s Test summer after he injured himself due to punching his bowling hand against a wall. He did this out of frustration after he got out during a Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania.

Mitchell Marsh is fondly remembered for his 96-runs inning against South Africa in Durban which helped Australia win the first Test match before everything went south due to the Sandpaper gate.

Mitchell Marsh ODI Career

Mitchell Marsh made his ODI debut on 19 October 2011 against South Africa and so far has been indifferent in form. He has shown potential but in patches. He was even part of the 2015 World Cup winning squad and took a five-wicket haul against England with the figures of 5/33.

Marsh's maiden ODI century came 5 years after his debut during the fifth ODI against India on 23 January 2016 at SCG. However, his unbeaten 102-run inning was overshadowed by Manish Pandey's match-winning 104-runs inning that helped India chase a steep target of 331. Marsh has now got an opportunity to kick-start his career as he has been picked for the upcoming limited overs series against England in the bio-secure bubble.

In 2019, he was named as cover for the all-rounder Marcus Stoinis against Pakistan in the ICC World Cup but wasn’t included in the final playing XI. Since then, Marsh hasn’t been able to maintain his position in the ODI side, having played a total of 14 matches in 3 years for Australia.

T20I Career

Mitchell Marsh made a spectacular debut for Australia in October 2011 during the second T20 match against South Africa--scoring 36 runs including four sixes, three of which were hit in the final over of the Australian innings.

Marsh struck his maiden T20I fifty against West Indies in the first T20 played in July 2021, where he scored 51 runs off 31 balls. He went on to score another fifty in the next encounter of the series too. In the fourth T20i, Marsh played a handsome inning of 75 runs and even achieved his best-ever T20I bowling figures of 3/24.

Marsh was named in the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup squad for Australia. Marsh was one of the stars of the Championship winning Aussie team as he scored 189 runs in 6 games. He struck 53 against West Indies but saved his best for the most important game.

In the final against New Zealand, he smashed 77 off just 50 balls and won the “Player of the Match” award. He has played 42 T20Is up until now, with 980 runs and has scalped 15 wickets.

Mitchell Marsh Captaincy

Marsh was handed the captaincy for the 2010 U-19 Cricket World Cup. Under his leadership, Australia won the tournament by beating Pakistan in the final by 25 runs. After the sandpaper incident in South Africa and the arrival of Justin Langer as coach, Mitchell Marsh was appointed the joint Test vice-captain.
