Only Gayle has a better T20 average than Marsh (min 50 matches)

You might have all the talent in the world, but if you don't have that bit of luck go your way, then you might not end up fulfilling your talents. Take the case of Shaun Marsh, here is a supremely gifted batsman, whose record in the shortest format of the game are so good, that only Chris Gayle, the undisputed king of the format, can claim his record is better.

Over 4,500 runs at an average in excess of 40 and a strike rate of almost 130 are numbers that are beyond the wildest dreams of most T20 openers. Then again, Marsh isn't your run-of-the-mill opener.

But such has been Australia's quality in the opening department that Marsh has just played 13 T20Is. Although his record in those games aren't especially noteworthy, his career record in the format is proof that he has what it takes to succeed in the format.

Unfortunately for Marsh, as long as Aaron Finch and David Warner are still playing, it seems as though he is unlikely to add to that tally, which would be a shame given his incredible record in the shortest format of the game.
