Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh is aiming at playing red-ball cricket once again for his national side.
Mitchell Marsh got his baggy green in 2014 in the match against Pakistan and since then he has played 32 matches for Australia in the purest form of the game with his last game coming in 2019 against England. However, since then he has not been part of the Australian Test team.
Meanwhile, with his sensational run in white-ball cricket, Marsh was able to earn a spot in Australia’s T20 World Cup 15-member squad.
The 29-year-old is currently in United Arab Emirates (UAE) preparing for the World Cup. While talking to reporters Mitchell Marsh stated that he doesn’t have a lot of Test cricket performance to back his name for selection for the Ashes but with the good run in T20 World Cup 2021, he can reclaim his spot in Test cricket. Mitchell Marsh asserted:
“I’d love to play Test cricket again for Australia at some point. I’m not going to have a lot of red-ball cricket to put my name up there for selection, but like many before me if I can perform in white-ball then you’re still in the selectors’ eyes. But first things first is to be part of this World Cup, which is going to be very exciting.”
