I am renowned as the glue of the fast bowling cartel: Mitchell Marsh

Mitchell Marsh, the Australian allrounder, is confident he can make a significant contribution with both bat and ball if selected for his hometown Test match in Perth.
Marsh started the season as a specialist batsman and has scored 680 runs in all forms of cricket at an average of 68. He returned to bowling late last month and claimed 2 for 49 against Queensland at the WACA.

“I am renowned as the glue of the fast bowling cartel,” Marsh told reporters in Perth on Tuesday (December 12). “I did a bit of sucking up and I’m back in their WhatsApp group. The cartel are happy to have me back. I got invited to dinner last night. It was a huge honour,” he added with a laugh.

Despite his lack of bowling, Marsh believed his reconstructed shoulder would be able to handle the rigours of a Test match. “Shoulder’s feeling really good, body’s feeling really good, got through the last two Shield games bowling, ready to go if I get the chance,” he said.

“I know I’m in great form at the moment, I probably didn’t expect to get back in so soon after my injury. I’ve worked hard over the last nine months to get my body back into shape.
