Biography Timeline


Marsh and his younger brother Mitchell attended Wesley College in Perth where they excelled in cricket. In 1998 Shaun set the record, which was broken ten years later, for the highest average (210) in the Public Schools Association's Darlot Cup cricket competition.


During this time, Marsh made his first-class cricket debut in 2000–01, against South Australia at the WACA Ground in March 2001. He played as a middle order batsman, and played the final three games of the season, before continuing to represent both the Australian Under 19 side and the Australian Cricket Academy throughout 2001 in the lead-up to the World Cup in New Zealand in January to February 2002.


In October 2002, Marsh was named to play for Western Australia against the touring English XI in a two-day practice match (not classified as first-class) prior to the 2002–03 Ashes. Marsh top scored in the match as he made 92 runs against an English bowling attack consisting of Matthew Hoggard, Stephen Harmison, Andy Caddick and Ashley Giles. He was not selected for the three-day match held soon after, but was selected to make his List A debut for the Warriors in an ING Cup match against South Australian Redbacks in November 2002. He went on to play nine ING Cup games and three Pura Cup during the 2002–03 season and he made his maiden first-class hundred against a NSW side featuring Steve and Mark Waugh in 2003.


Over the next few years, he cemented his position in the Warriors middle order, averaging over 35 in first class cricket in 2004–05 and 2005–06. He was named in the Australia-A side for a mid-year tournament in Cairns in July 2006. After a relatively poor 2006–07 season, he returned to top form in 2007–08 in all forms of the game. In first-class cricket, he made his highest career score of 166 not out (as part of a 268 run 4th-wicket partnership with Luke Pomersbach and averaged over 60 runs per completed innings. In the 2007–08 Ford Ranger Cup 50-over competition, Marsh made his debut century and was the Warriors' top run scorer. In Twenty20 cricket, he was the competition's leading run scorer with the highest average and the highest individual score.


Off the field, Marsh has suffered from occasional lapses of discipline. In November 2007, he was suspended for two matches by the WACA for drinking alcohol to excess with teammate Luke Pomersbach.


Good form with the Western Warriors was rewarded with a contract in the 2008 Indian Premier League, where he opened the batting for the Kings XI Punjab. Despite missing the opening four games of the tournament, Marsh scored the most runs in the league stage of tournament, including a century in the final league stage match against the Rajasthan Royals. He received the orange cap for scoring most runs in the 2008 IPL tournament. Shaun Marsh was chosen in the inaugural IPL dream team chosen by the cricketing website Cricinfo along with cricket superstars Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumar Sangakkara, Glenn McGrath and Shane Warne as well as other young talents like Rohit Sharma, Gautam Gambhir and Yusuf Pathan. Marsh has been playing for Kings XI Punjab since the start of the Indian Premier League, becoming one of the most vital players for the team.

He made his debut for Australia in June 2008 in a Twenty20 game against the West Indies alongside fellow West Australian debutant, Luke Ronchi. Opening the batting with Ronchi, they compiled an opening partnership of 57 runs from the first 6 overs, with Marsh being dismissed soon after for 29 runs from 22 balls, including two sixes and a four. He made a memorable One Day International debut a few days later, top scoring for the match with 81 runs from 97 balls and winning the Man of the Match award. With the recent retirements of two of Australia's longest-serving ODI opening batsmen in Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden, Marsh was able to claim one of the opening batsmen positions for the 2008–09 season. In the South African tour of Australia, Marsh performed well in the opening two ODI matches, top-scoring in both matches and winning the Man of the Match award in the second game. He has scored more than 50 in five of his 10 matches, and scored his first century in the 5th ODI against India at Hyderabad on 5 November 2009.

Marsh was included in the Test cricket squad for Australia's tour of India in 2008, but was not selected for a match.


For his performances in 2011, he was named in the Cricinfo IPL XI.

On 21 January 2011, in an ODI match against England at Hobart, Marsh scored his second ODI century (110) in a record ninth-wicket partnership with Doug Bollinger. Australia went on to win the match by 46 runs, and Marsh was named Player of the Match.

In July 2011, Marsh was selected for the Australian Test Squad for the tour to Sri Lanka and was presented with the baggy green by his father. Marsh made his maiden Test century on debut against Sri Lanka on 8 September 2011, and became the 19th Australian to score a century on Test debut. He scored 141 and shared a 258-run 4th wicket partnership with Michael Hussey, who scored 142. He played one Test in Australia's following tour of South Africa, before missing three Tests with a back injury. He played all four Tests in Australia's 2011–12 home series against India, but performed poorly, scoring only 17 runs at an average of 2.67, including three ducks. After continuing to show poor form at domestic level afterwards, he was dropped from the Test team.


In October 2012, during the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in South Africa, Marsh was dropped from the Scorchers last game, along with brother Mitchell, after a night of partying to celebrate Mitchell's 21st birthday.

In October 2012, compounding a lean run of form, Marsh was dropped from the Perth Scorchers, and subsequently the Western Australian team, following an off-field indiscretion during the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in South Africa.


Marsh did not return to the Test team until 2014, and from 2014 until 2016 was a fringe player who has filled in for an injured top-order batsman on several occasions. His first recall was in February 2014 as a replacement for Shane Watson in the first Test of Australia's 2013–14 tour of South Africa; he scored 148 runs in his first innings, but was dropped after getting a pair in the second Test. He was recalled to the line-up in December 2014 for the home series against India after captain Michael Clarke tore his hamstring, and scored 254 runs at 42.33 in three Tests. He played both Tests in the 2015 tour of the West Indies after Chris Rogers withdrew with concussion, scoring 112 runs at 37.33. He toured with the Australian team throughout the subsequent 2015 Ashes series, playing well in tour matches but failing (with scores of 0 and 2) in the sole Test for which he was selected. He played two home Tests in 2015–16, one against New Zealand and one against the West Indies after Usman Khawaja suffered a hamstring injury, and in the match against the West Indies scored 182, the highest score of his career to date.


In 2017, Marsh had an eye test, which showed he was short-sighted, a condition with which he had been batting and fielding for a considerable time. He started wearing contact lenses. This caused surprise in the cricket community, for whom Test match contracts normally include sight tests as a routine requirement.


In April 2018, he was awarded a national contract by Cricket Australia for the 2018–19 season.


In 2019, he signed with Glamorgan ahead of the 2019 County Championship in England. In October 2020, in the third round of matches in the 2020–21 Sheffield Shield season, Marsh scored his 30th century in first-class cricket.

In April 2019, he was named in Australia's squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup. However, ahead of Australia's final group-stage match, Marsh was ruled out of the rest of the tournament with a fractured forearm. Peter Handscomb was named as his replacement.

Family Life

Shaun's father, Geoff Marsh, also was a professional cricketer.
