Shaun Marsh declares his retirement from international cricket

After 22 years of Sheffield Shield play for Western Australia and 38 Test appearances for Australia, Shaun Marsh has retired from first-class cricket.

In 2001, at the age of 17, Marsh made his first-class debut for Western Australia. In Mitchell Marsh’s absence the previous year, Marsh was the team’s captain and they won the Sheffield Shield.

Marsh, who is 39 years old, decided to play another season in 2022–2023 but was injured this summer and was limited to just one Shield game.

With 8347 runs, including 20 hundreds and 43 half centuries, Marsh concluded his cricketing career as the third-highest run scorer for Western Australia in the Shield.

Prior to winning the Orange Cap, he scored the most points in the 2008 Indian Premier League, Twenty20 competition, earning himself a contract with Cricket Australia.
