Shaun Marsh: ‘Probably wasn’t expecting’ a phone call for Adelaide recall


Though he hasn’t retired yet, Marsh concedes that his international days are over

Shaun Marsh admitted to checking his phone in the build-up to the ongoing Adelaide Test against India. But, as it turns out, he wasn’t waiting for a call from the Australian selectors. Instead, he was checking out some of the amusing online videos that were doing the rounds calling for his return to the Test team in the wake of injuries to David Warner and Will Pucovski, and Joe Burns‘ slump in form.

One video on Twitter that featured a scene from WWE’s Royal Rumble – where Marsh’s face had been photoshopped on John Cena’s body as he entered the arena to rapturous applause from fans while other wrestlers lay prone in the ring – was viewed more than 60,000 times.

Marsh, 37, produced a stunning start to the Sheffield Shield for Western Australia this season, plundering three centuries in six innings while tallying 485 runs at 97.00. That led to murmurs about a recall – given he has opened in Test cricket ten times while averaging 38.55, including a century against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 2016 – but Marsh did not buy into the hype.
