    Profile

    Son of former Australian opener Geoff Marsh, cricket runs in the genes of Shaun Marsh. His brother Mitchell is also a rising talent, but Shaun is the more established star. He is a naturally gifted stroke-maker, relying on good hand-eye coordination to achieve exquisite timing on his shots. That ability was first on display in the inaugural IPL in 2008. Bought for a cheap $US30,000 by Kings XI Punjab, Marsh outscored a galaxy of stars assembled in the IPL, won the Orange Cap and was one of the main reasons why his team made it to the semifinal. His ODI and International T20 debut followed shortly after that, but Marsh would have a longer wait for a Test match call-up. He battled injuries and loss of form subsequently, but after two consecutive first class seasons where he averaged nearly 60, Marsh made his long awaited Test debut for Australia. The impact he made was immediate with a century on debut against Sri Lanka – who were, incidentally, coached by his father Geoff. However, he suffered a severe dip in form almost immediately after that and in the 2011-12 Australian summer, he had a run of four ducks in seven international innings. That resulted in him being dropped from the squad to tour West Indies. In IPL, he continues to be with Kings XI, who bought him for $US400,000 in the 2011 auctions.
