Australian legend Rod Marsh died at the age of 74 cricket world in mourning


The cricket world is in mourning after former Australia wicketkeeper Rod Marsh died on Friday at the age of 74. Marsh suffered a heart attack in Queensland last week and was in a coma at the Royal Adelaide Hospital until his death.

The great player played 96 Tests for his country, scoring three Test centuries. At the same time, the world record of making 355 batsmen their victim behind the wicket was also his name.

He later headed national cricket academies in Australia and England and was the inaugural head of the International Cricket Council’s World Coaching Academy in Dubai. In 2014, he was appointed as the chairman of selectors for Australia and held the position for two years.

Cricket Australia said in its statement: “This is a very sad day for Australian cricket and for everyone who loves and admires Rod Marsh. Rod will always be remembered for the way he played the game and some of the greatest Australians.” The joy he brought as a member of the teams. ‘Marsh caught, bowled Lily’ has coveted status in our sport.”

“Rod has made a huge contribution to the sport by recognizing, coaching and mentoring many future stars in his various roles as coach and director at cricket academies in Australia and other cricket-playing countries. Our thoughts are Rod’s wife, Ross, on his With sons Paul. Dan and Jamie and the extended Marsh family, many of his friends and teammates with whom he made so many special memories.”
