It has been a long road back for Marsh, who last year was appointed Test vice-captain as part of the shake-up to the side in the wake of the scandal at Cape Town.

Marsh has trained hard to improve his fitness so he can bowl more overs and bat for longer periods, in the manner of England all-rounder Ben Stokes.

An improved work ethic combined with reduced portion sizes for the self-confessed prodigious eater resulted in a leaner physique better equipped for the job. Marsh cramped late on the first day in his calf and hamstring in both legs though, he said, it was more due to adrenaline than poor conditioning.

After what appeared a breakthrough summer with the bat in the last Ashes series, Marsh's form fell away last year and he found himself down on form and confidence, the latter requiring counselling from WACA's sports psychologist Matt Burgin to repair.

"It transitioned into my cricket at times as well. I understand everyone goes through tough periods in their life, I certainly didn't handle that as best as I could.

"To have gone through that and got through the summer the way that I did, and finish for WA, I knew I still had a love for the game. It was a tough summer last year, I tried to put it behind me as quickly as possible.

"When you play cricket and you want to do well badly and it doesn't work out it's very easy to get down on yourself.

"I was certainly at that stage so I did a lot of work with our sports psychologist Matt Burgin at WA about detaching myself from the outcome, working as hard as I can, getting as fit as I can and preparing well."

Marsh has addressed the impact the online abuse had on him, saying it made him feel "pretty shit", but says he understands why the punters get irate.

"Most of Australia hate me," he joked. "Australians are passionate, they love their cricket, they want people to do well.

"There's no doubt that I've had a lot of opportunity at Test level and I haven't quite nailed it but hopefully they can respect me for the fact I keep coming back, I love playing for Australia, I love wearing the baggy green cap. I keep trying, hopefully I win them over one day."

Marsh, who has been challenged to get fitter by coach Justin Langer, said he is not a bad eater but a big one.

"It wasn’t terrible, my body just likes to put on weight easily, and my mum likes to feed me," Marsh said. "I haven’t had as many roasts at home in the last six months. But it hasn’t been that hard, I love playing for Australia, I just love it, and I want to keep doing it, so I’ll keep working."
