If You Want To Hit Your First Ball For Six, Then I Want You To Do It: Marsh On Cummins’s Message Before Turnaround
In that game, Marsh made a run-a-ball 118 on his Test recall after nearly four years. “He said to me, ‘If you want to go and hit your first ball for six, and you’re feeling it, I want you to do it’. Ultimately, I’m probably not going to do that.”
“Although I’d love to be able to say after I finished playing that I hit my first ball for six in a Test match. But I guess that’s the reason I’m picked. I do play reasonably attacking these days, and Patty sees that as a strength of mine. He just wants me to go out there and enjoy it and have fun,” Marsh was quoted as saying by The Sydney Morning Herald.
