Shaun Marsh contracted for 22nd domestic cricket season as WA eyes back-to-back Sheffield Shield success

Shaun Marsh will play on for an extraordinary 22nd season of domestic cricket but could be asked to sit out some or all of the 50-over games next summer to give the next generation their chance to shine.

Marsh, 39 in July, has been included in WA’s squad for next summer as the reigning Sheffield Shield and one-day champions keep their group together.

The veteran batsman, who made his shield debut as a 17-year-old and had to wait more than two decades for his first title last season, was always keen to continue and has resisted the temptation to go out on top.

“He was really keen to continue playing and feels like there’s still plenty for him to give,” WA coach Adam Voges said.
