Ian Healy feels Mitchell Marsh has earned the right to be in ashes side chairman of selectors George Bailey disagrees


Melbourne. Australia’s chief selector George Bailey said that Mitchell Marsh’s brilliant innings in the final of the T20 World Cup will not get priority when the team is selected for the Ashes series. Because both the formats are completely different. Marsh played a winning innings of 77 not out in 50 balls in the final (T20 World Cup 2021). Due to this, the team was able to win the T20 World Cup title for the first time by defeating New Zealand by 8 wickets in the final. Australia has to play a 5-match Test series against England at home in December-January.

Mitchell Marsh scored 185 runs in 6 matches of the T20 World Cup at an average of 62. After this, former Australian legends like Ian Healy supported his selection in the team for the upcoming Test series against England. However, when George Bailey was asked about the selection of 31-year-old Mitchell Marsh, who was the man of the match in the final, he refused to say any such thing.

Both formats are completely different

Former cricket George Bailey told NEN Dwayne World, ‘To be honest, that performance will not be given much importance. T20 and Test formats are completely different from each other. He said, ‘There is no similarity between the two, but you want to see players doing well at the international level, because it gives them confidence.’ Bailey said, ‘I think it is not necessary for a player to continue the rhythm of one format in the other and also I do not think that winning in the T20 World Cup will benefit you in the Ashes.’

Mitchell Marsh has played 32 Tests, but he has failed to cement his place in the team. In this format, his average with the bat is 25 and the bowling average is around 39. The 5-match series is starting from December 8. England all-rounder and main player Ben Stokes will also be seen in the series. He did not participate in the T20 World Cup due to mental health.
