With 95 occurrences of ‘caught Marsh, bowled Lillee,’ his relationship with famed fast bowler Dennis Lillee is the most productive bowler-wicketkeeper pairing in Test history. Their record stands today, despite the fact that they retired together in 1984.
Marsh was a household name with Lillee, Jeff Thomson, and the Chappell brothers, and was a tremendously popular member of Australia’s winning team of the 1970s.
After retiring from playing, he continued to make an impact on the game by leading the Australian Cricket Academy in Adelaide, where he worked with players like Ricky Ponting and helped usher in a powerful period of Australian cricket.
After that, he returned to England to run their academy before becoming a national selector, quitting shortly after the memorable Ashes victory in 2005.
Between 2014 and 2016, he was the chairman of Australia’s selection panel.
Marsh is an Australian Cricket Hall of Fame member.
I hope I clearly explained Rod Marsh Cause of death. What are your thoughts on his dismiss?
