Wanted to add ‘really strong defence’ to my game: Mitchell Marsh

Mitchell Marsh, the Australian all-rounder, said that despite not having the chance to “hit as many balls as he would’ve liked”, he’s going to have to take field only as a batsman for Western Australia at the start of the new domestic season.
Marsh was forced to return home from Australia’s Test tour of India after sustaining a shoulder injury, earlier in March, after what was a mediocre outing for him where he scored just 48 runs in four innings and bowled five overs. Last week, Marsh was named the new captain of Western Warriors, replacing Adam Voges, but is still recuperating from the injury.
“My shoulder’s close,” Marsh said on The Unplayable Podcast on Thursday (September 14). “I’m obviously back batting now and I’ll play for Western Australia at the start of the season for a while just as a batsman until I get my shoulder strong enough to be able to bowl and throw.
“It’s going really well. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed a bit of time at home, as hard as it’s been to watch cricket. We’ve had a chance to get away from the game a little bit and really re-focus my goals. It’s obviously going to be a huge summer. Not just for me, but for Western Australia and Australia. I’m really looking forward to it now.
“I probably would have liked a bit more time to work on my game. I probably haven’t hit as many balls as I would have liked, but it’s going to have to be enough and I’m just looking forward to getting into the start of the season,” he said.
