Mitch Marsh speaks about playing for the Perth Scorchers and BBL

The Scorchers’ fan favourite officially put pen to paper on a four-year contract extension and is set to play at least 14 seasons in the Scorchers’ orange.

Marsh has been in blistering hometown form for Perth and was at his destructive best in a Player of the Match performance against the Sydney Sixers last week.

He blasted an unbeaten 57 runs from 27 deliveries, including two brutal sixes to go with a tidy 1-12 with the ball.

Marsh recently surpassed his brother Shaun Marsh as the Scorchers all-time leading run scorer, he’s clubbed 1,632 runs at an average of 38.85, and has 22 wickets to his name.

The Scorchers take on the Hobart Hurricanes tomorrow, Tuesday 12 January in the final match of the Perth-leg of their 2020-21 Big Bash campaign.

A playing squad will be announced later today.

Mitch Marsh said;

“I’m thrilled to be re-committing to the Scorchers for the next four BBL seasons.

“I’m a very proud West Australian, I love representing the Scorchers and playing in front of our home crowds in Perth.

“We’ve been a very successful club over a long period of time, the support we get from our fans is incredible, so it was an easy decision to sign on for another four years.”

Scorchers Head Coach Adam Voges said;

“It’s great for our club that Mitch has committed his future to the Scorchers.

“He’s an important player and we’ve seen over the past couple of games how much influence he has in matches.

“We know how proud and passionate Mitch is about playing for the Scorchers, he brings a wealth of talent and experience to our team and is a much-loved member of our squad.”
