He retires at the same time as Aaron Finch, who used to be Australia’s captain.
“I have loved playing for the Renegades. I’ve met some great people over the last five years, and the friendships I’ve made will last a lifetime,” Marsh, 40, said in a statement to the Renegades.
“To the Renegades’ coaches and staff and everyone behind the scenes, thank you for backing me in from the start and over my final years. It’s made my job a little easier out in the middle.” Marsh scored 181 runs in five games, even though he started the season late because of an injury. His average was 45.25 and his hit rate was 138.16. He also got three fifty runs.
Before joining Renegades for the 2019-20 season, he played for the Perth Scorchers for a long time and did well there from 2011 to 2019. He also said nice things about his old team.
“I owe a lot to the Scorchers. I’ve got some fond memories of playing in Perth and really enjoyed my time there. The back-to-back titles are up there for me as the most enjoyable moments I’ve experienced on a cricket field,” he ended.
Marsh had a great time with Australia in all types of cricket, getting more than 5,200 runs and 13 hundreds. His last game for the Kangaroos was against Sri Lanka at The Oval during the 2019 ODI World Cup.
