Mitchell Marsh profile: Career stats, Test, ODI, T20I appearances, Ashes record

Mitchell Marsh has worked his way through to becoming Australia's T20I captain and he is expected to lead his country into the T20 World Cup in the West Indies and United States later this year.

The batting all-rounder has certainly not always been a regular for the Baggy Greens, but at the peak of his form he is a world-class performer who can affect outcomes, mainly with the bat.

Ashes bring out the best in Marsh

Three years after he had broken into the Australia limited-overs set-up, Marsh was handed an opportunity to shine in the Test match arena and he started well against Pakistan, making 87 and 47 in his second match.

However, a record of one half-century across his next 33 innings seemed to show that Marsh was short of the class needed to shine in red-ball cricket.

The 2017/18 Ashes series on home soil would prove to be a major turning point, as Marsh returned to the side for the third Test and smashed a career-best 181 in Perth, before adding 101 at the SCG, ending his wait for a century in style.

Marsh made 96 in his next Test innings, against South Africa in Durban, but from there his form again slipped away and he fell out of favour with the Test team for almost four years between 2019 and 2023.

Again an Ashes return did the trick, as Marsh made 118 at Headingley against England, helping the Baggy Greens eventually draw the series 2-2 and retain the little urn.

The following home series saw Marsh rack up 344 runs at 86.00 against Pakistan, passing 50 in four out of his five innings and twice being dismissed in the 90s.

His most recent knock saw him make 80 against New Zealand in Christchurch, so appears to be enjoying a purple patch with the bat in Tests.

With the ball Marsh has not had a massive impact, but as with the bat, his best performances have come in Ashes clashes, where he has taken 18 wickets in 10 matches.

His best innings and match performance came at The Oval in September 2019, where he took 5-46 and 2-40, even though Australia would go on to lose the match by 135 runs.

World Cup win highlights ODI record

Marsh has racked up 89 appearances for Australia in one-day internationals, with success at the World Cup in 2023 the undoubted pinnacle of his achievements.

He went into the competition with just one ODI century to his name but added 121 against Pakistan and a career-best 177 not out against Bangladesh, before playing in the famous final win over tournament hosts Australia in Ahmedabad.

With the ball Marsh has seen his role in recent time limited by long-tie concerns over an ankle problem, meaning that his best-ever figures remain the 5-33 he took against England at the MCG back in February 2015.

T20 World Cup final starring role

Marsh has been a consistent force with the bat in T20I cricket, passing 50 nine times in 52 innings, including three times in his eight most recent knocks, all of which were unbeaten.

His shining moment came in the final of the 2021 T20 World Cup, when he blasted 77 not out from 50 balls against New Zealand in Dubai to power Australia to an eight-wicket victory with seven balls to spare.

With the ball Marsh has played a very limited role in his T20I appearance, with his best effort 3-24 against the West Indies at Gros Islet in July 2021.
