Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has expressed his happiness after returning to the Fast Bowlers Whatsapp group in the Australian team.

Marsh recently got added to the Australian squad for the 3rd Ashes Test in Perth, and he might play a vital role as the 5th bowler in the team. He hasn’t been consistent in Tests, but with the abundance of talent he might well turn out to be the trump card for the hosts in the remaining three Tests.

When asked who runs the Whatsapp group of the fast bowlers Marsh said,

“Starc really is the head honcho, so I like to get around him as much as I can.”

He will be raring to go in the third Test after a long injury layoff. He is a wonderful striker of the ball and can be a valuable batsman in the lower middle-order. He will definitely look to seal his spot in the team this time around and come up with some match-winning performances in the remaining three Tests.

Meanwhile, England will have to play out of their skin to remain in the series. One more victory for the hosts would ensure they reclaim the Ashes after surrendering to England in 2016. Australia is looking rampant and will be eager to gain an unassailable lead in the Perth match and push for yet another 5-0 whitewash.
