Shaun Marsh has been in the middle of a good patch recently. He was recently recalled to the Aussie Test squad ahead of the Ashes. The left-handed batsman has now acquired a contract with English County Club Glamorgan. He is expected to represent them in all the three formats from the coming season.

With fresh IPL auctions slated to take place in January, Marsh is unlikely to be retained. Thus it remains to be seen if Shaun is picked by any of the eight franchises. Glamorgan may call in a cover overseas batsman for him if that happens.

Looking forward to bringing some silverware for the Wales

Currently a part of the Australian squad for Ashes, Marsh sounded excited at the prospect of having a county contract. He looked forward to playing with the youngsters and giving his best for the Club.

“Securing my County future for the long term has always appealed to me so I jumped at the opportunity when it came. There is a lot of exciting young talent at the Club and hopefully I can put in some good performances so we can bring some silverware to Wales,” he stated.

Shaun Marsh is a world class performer, pleased to have him

The director of Cricket at Glamorgan, Hugh Morris stated that he was glad to have a batsman like Marsh in their batting ranks. Morris felt that his international experience would be handy for the club.

“I am very pleased to announce the signing of Shaun Marsh as our overseas signing for the next two years. We wanted to bring in someone who is experienced at international level, can bat at the top of the order and can play in all three formats of the game, and Shaun ticks all of those boxes for us,” he said.

Calling him a world-class performer, Morris stated that the presence of Shaun would foster the young talent in the squad.

“He is a world class performer who has played in competitions across the world and that experience will be invaluable to our young players as we look to build on our success in white-ball cricket and improve performances in the County Championship.”
