Is Rod Marsh Related to Mitch Marsh?
No. Rod and Mitch Marsh are not related. They both play cricket and are from Australia.
Rod Marsh is thought to be the father of cricketer Mitch Marsh, according to Reddit users. That is not the case, as Mitch is one of Geoff Marsh’s two sons.
Geoff is a former Australian cricketer who now works as a coach and selector for the national team.
Rodney William Marsh MBE was an Australian cricketer who captained the national team as a wicketkeeper. Marsh played on the Australian Test team from 1970 until 1984.
He established a world record for most wicketkeeping dismissals with 355 in 96 Tests, the same amount as his Western Australian fast bowling counterpart Dennis Lillee.
The bowler-wicketkeeper combo was noted for producing 95 Test wickets, a record for any such combination.
In the same series, they made their test debuts and retired from test cricket. “Few bowling-wicket-keeping partnerships have had such a deep influence on the game,” according to Wisden.
Mitchell Ross Marsh is an Australian cricketer who has represented his country at the international level. Marsh made his debut for Australia in all three forms of cricket during the 2011–12 season.
Marsh is Geoff Marsh’s second son and Shaun Marsh’s younger brother, both of whom have played for the Australian national team.
His sister, Melissa Marsh, played professional basketball in Australian leagues, and he is a cousin of Brad Sheppard of the West Coast Eagles. He grew up in Perth, Western Australia, and went to Wesley College.
