Marsh wants to bat through innings like dad

Hobart: Young Australian opener Shaun Marsh has said that while he is satisfied with the fact that he has scored five half-centuries in ten one-day internationals, he is unhappy about not batting through an innings like his dad Geoff did for the country in the 1980s and 1990s.

Marsh, who scored a 103-ball 78 to earn the man of the match award in Australia's five-run victory over South Africa in Hobart on Sunday, left the ground disappointed.

His father, Geoff, was one of the rocks around which Australian cricket rebuilt itself, especially in the one-day arena - in which he made nine centuries opening the batting.

"I've probably got out at crucial periods in both games and it has been very disappointing that I haven't gone on. I've left the team in a bit of a tricky position. So hopefully, in the next few games, I can bat through the innings and really do my job properly," Fox Sports quoted Shaun, as saying.
