Personal Life

Marsh is the second son of Geoff Marsh and younger brother of Shaun Marsh, both of whom have played for the Australian national side. His sister, Melissa Marsh, was a professional basketball player in Australian leagues and he is a cousin to West Coast Eagles player, Brad Sheppard. He was raised in Perth, Western Australia, where he attended Wesley College.

Domestic Career

Marsh 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 played for Australia’s under-19 team against India and was the team captain during the 2010 Under-19 Cricket World Cup. Under his leadership, Australia won the tournament, Marsh having a successful tournament scoring 201 runs, including a match-winning 97 in the semi-final against Sri Lanka.

Marsh was signed by Deccan Chargers for the 2010 Indian Premier League and in 2011 was bought by Pune Warriors, the team coached at the time by his father. He played for Pune for the three years that the team existed and in 2016 and 2017 played for Rising Pune Supergiants for the two seasons that team existed.

He was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 2020 IPL, although he only played in one match of the competition due to injury, and he withdrew from the 2021 Indian Premier League due to bio-bubble fatigue during the pandemic.

International Career

In September 2011, Marsh was named in Australia’s Twenty20 squad to tour South Africa. He was later added to the One Day International squad following Brett Lee’s withdrawal due to injury. He made a spectacular debut for Australia in the second T20I match of the series, scoring 36 runs including four sixes, three of which were hit in the final over of the Australian innings. In August 2014, Marsh scored 89 runs against Zimbabwe in the first match of the Tri-series at Harare Sports Club, adding 109 runs for the fourth wicket with Glenn Maxwell and contributing to partnerships of 47 and 33 with Aaron Finch and George Bailey. Later in the competition, he scored 86 not out against South Africa.

Marsh made his Test match debut for Australia against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates on 22 October 2014.

In July 2021, in the first Twenty20 International match of Australia’s tour of the West Indies, Marsh scored his maiden T20I half-century, scoring 51 runs from 31 deliveries. He continued his good form, scoring another half-century in the following match and in the fourth T20I made 75 runs and took his career-best T20I bowling figures of 3/24.

In August 2021, Marsh was named to Australia’s squad for the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. On 14 November 2021, Marsh helped Australia win the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, scoring 77 runs in the final and earning player of the match.
