Before the selection of the Australia team for the world cup 2019, Ricky Pointing said about Shaun Marsh to cricket.com.au.
“I’ve known him for a long time and he’s a highly talented player, he’s obviously just battling himself at the minute.”
“It’s a hard world out there – international cricket is not an easy place to live and survive especially when you’re an all-rounder like him, and he’s had his fair share of injury issues as well.”
“I feel for him. I would love to see him in the World Cup squad. There is that danger man, x-factor about someone like Mitchell Marsh with the way that he can strike the cricket ball and his Bowling is a little bit underrated as well.”
“They’re the guys that can win you a World Cup. Let’s hope he finishes the Australian domestic season really strongly, makes a lot of runs and gives the selectors a reason to want to pick him back in the Australian team again.”
