Shaun Marsh played for Glamorgan during various parts of three separate seasons during the 2010s.
The left-handed batsman from Western Australia first appeared for Glamorgan during the T20 competition during 2012 after a highly productive time in the Indian Premier League with Kings XI Punjab. However, the weather ruined his time in Wales, with the southpaw only being able to give a brief glimpse of his abilities, with the highlight being a fine 85 against Somerset at Taunton.
After a spell with Yorkshire during 2017, Shaun returned, in theory, to play for the Welsh county in all formats during 2018. But having struck a commanding 111 in the Championship match against Gloucestershire at Bristol he then dislocated a shoulder blade diving along the boundary’s edge at Cardiff in the second T20 match of the summer against the Sussex Sharks and missed the rest of the season. After recovering and regaining his place in the Australian side, Shaun – who had agreed to return to Wales in 2019 – sustained a fractured forearm during the World Cup and after further time on the sidelines, he was only able to appear in five matches for Glamorgan.
As a child, Shaun had spent a lot of time in the Australian set-up travelling with his father Geoff, the former Australian opening batsman, and this international grounding helped his own transition onto the international stage, with Shaun posting a superb century on Test debut in Sri Lanka. In all, he has played in 38 Tests, 73 One-Day Internationals and 15 International T20 games for Australia.
