Mitchell Marsh Biography

 

Mitchell Marsh is a hard-hitting all rounder who plays for the Australian team. Born on October 20, 1991, Marsh revived his Test career in the 2017-18 Ashes, with crucial contributions in the middle order.


Background


Hailing from a cricket background, the 26 year old is younger brother of Shaun Marsh, a left-handed top order batsman, and the son of Australia’s former opener, Geoff Marsh.


Mitchell started playing competitive cricket at the age of 17 and played for Western Australia in the domestic circuit.


Debut


Even before his international debut, he was selected to play in IPL for Deccan Chargers in 2010.

 

He replaced Shane Watson, who was injured, to make his Test debut against Pakistan during Australia’s tour to the UAE in October 2014 and scored 87 in the Test played at Abu Dhabi.


Rise to glory


He is known for his performance in the Zimbabwe tri-series in 2013, where in the first match of the tournament, he scored 89.

 

2016 is considered to be his best year yet, when he made his first ever century in a 50-over match during the home summer.

 

Unlike his father and brother, Mitchell also has the ability to bowl a few overs, which enables him to lend balance to the Australian side, and also pick up important wickets at crucial teams when the captain has had to give a break to one of the regular quicks.


Low points


Marsh performed well in the ODI series against South Africa in 2014 and also in the first two matches of 2014-15 Border Gavaskar Trophy, but had to be left out because of a hamstring injury on day one of the second Test in Brisbane.


Club career


Mitchell has been in cricket from a very early age of 17 when he played at domestic level. He went to play for his country against South Africa in a T20I at Wanderers in 2011, much before his Test debut.

 

He was included in Pune Warriors squad in IPL in 2011 and continued playing for the team till 2013. He also played for Naganahira Nagas in the Sri Lanka Premier League.

 

In Australia he was a regular member of the side for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League since 2011.
