Shaun Marsh Named Australian Domestic Cricket Player Of The Year
Western Australian veteran left-hander Shaun Marsh and Victorian top-order batswoman Elyse Villani were named as respective male and female domestic players of the year by Cricket Australia.
Marsh has been voted by his peers as the Male Domestic Player of the Year Award for the second year running. The left-handed batsman was the only player to score more than 1,000 runs across the Marsh Sheffield Shield, Marsh Cup, and BBL during the voting period, with 1,058 runs at 46.00, including five 50s and three 100s.
The 37-year-old becomes just the fourth player to win the award on multiple occasions after inaugural winner Darren Lehmann, Michael Klinger, and Cameron White.
Marsh said that the players placed an enormous value on the domestic game and this was reflected in their commitment and flexibility to get the game going through the impacts of Covid-19.
