marsh @ 3

with ricky ponting flying back to sydney to be with his wife for the birth of their second child shaun marsh has won his first baggy green. the second test against sri lanka starts tomorrow. australia currently leads the two test series1-0 after winning the first test by 150 odd runs on a pitch that has sri lanka in trouble. marsh’s inclusion at the number three spot is bound to put pressure on new south welshmen phillip highes and usman khawaja. hughes has struggled since his first series against south africa.

marsh has played 35 odi’s for australia opening the batting with an average of 36.58 @ 76.36. his first class record is 61 matches for an average of 37.71 @ 46.21
