Australia v South Africa: Captain Aaron Finch proud of Shaun Marsh batting bounce back Marsh has scored 416 runs, including three centuries, in just six ODI's.

Marsh has appealed to a series of Australian selection panels, who have viewed him as a viable top-order prospect in Tests and ODIs especially. Marsh is at his best when playing classical shots and keeping the ball along the ground, which has been effective even in the shorter formats of the game.

Former Australian chairman of selectors Rod Marsh has dismissed calls for the entire Cricket Australia hierarchy to be sacked, intimating it would do more harm than good.

The fallout from the ball-tampering scandal and the scathing Ethics Centre report continued this week as CA’s high performance manager Pat Howard and senior executive Ben Amarfio were both sacked.

Their departures followed the resignations last week of chairman David Peever and long-time board member Mark Taylor while former CEO James Sutherland left the organisation two weeks ago.

Australia 's preferred Test allrounder, Mitchell Marsh is a tall fast bowler who can hit 140kph and has shown promise as a lower middle-order batsman. He made his T 20 international debut at 19, having enjoyed his first taste of state cricket at just 17. Marsh honed his skills in the Australian dressing

Earlier this year Darren Lehmann vacated his role of head coach and former captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft continue to serve suspensions relating to the Cape Town calamity.

“A taxi driver said to me this morning, ‘I can’t believe they didn’t sack everyone’. And I said, ‘Who is going to run cricket if they sack everyone?’. You can’t do that,” Marsh told SEN on Friday.

“I think Kevin Roberts has moved into that CEO’s role and he’s obviously made a few changes. Time will tell how everything turns out, but for everyone’s sake let’s hope that it all turns out good because cricket is probably our national game ... and I think the country is happy when we are doing well.”

While Marsh didn’t think Smith should immediately regain the Test captaincy after he served his year-long suspension, he believed that Smith and Warner should re-enter the side as soon as possible because they are Australia’s best two batsmen.

Cricket Australia is yet to officially announce the decision but the chief executive James Sutherland and general manager of team performance Pat Howard During Arthur's time in charge, Australia won 10 of their 19 Tests but the past few months had been especially challenging both on field and off it.

The Australians have struggled in the dynamic duo’s absence with just four wins from their past 20 international matches and Marsh, who was chairman of selectors between 2014 and 2016, believes Australia’s batting has not been great for over a decade.

“If you’ve got a good technique then you’re half a chance. I really think that technique has been forgotten about a little bit,” Marsh told Triple M.

“And I blame the emphasis on T20 cricket a little bit for this, it’s not the only reason, and I really think we have to get right back, strip it all down and get back to the 10- and 12-year-old kids and start working with them and start getting the best coaches there and bring them through.

“Obviously it’s going to take time to re-establish ourselves but if you have a look at all of the good batting nations, people have had a lot of time spent on them coaching at a young age and I think that’s what we’ve got to do.

“If you’re brought up playing instant cricket then you never get the opportunity to bat time, you never get the opportunity to let the ball go, you never get the opportunity to get in. Once you’re out there you need to start playing shots immediately and it’s a very, very difficult line we’re walking at the moment for Test match cricket.”
