Shaun Marsh completes shock BBL move


Shaun Marsh has completed a shock move from the Perth Scorchers to reigning BBL champions the Melbourne Renegades.

Marsh, 35, ended a lifelong affiliation with Western Australian cricket by joining the Renegades on a multi-year deal.

The left-hander had been with the Scorchers since they entered the Big Bash in 2011 and was part of the squad that won back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015.

Marsh is looking forward to beginning a new chapter in his career with the Renegades.

“I’d like to thank everyone at the Scorchers who have supported me over the years – it was a very successful period for the club,” Marsh said.

“But I’m ready for a new challenge and the opportunity to join the Renegades on the back of such a successful season is very exciting.

“I’ve spent a lot of time with (Aaron) Finchy and know the other guys well, so I’m looking forward to it.”

Marsh sits tenth on the BBL’s all-time leading run scorers with 1435 runs in 37 innings at a strike-rate of 130 with a top score of 99 not out.

He is currently with the Australian ODI squad for their five-game ODI series against India.
