Marsh was dubbed 'Iron Gloves' after making an inauspicious Test debut against England in 1970/71. Before long those critics were left eating their words and the Australian's haul of 148 victims behind the stumps remains an Ashes record. More than a quarter of his wickets came in combination with Dennis Lillee, the most productive wicketkeeper/bowler combination in Test cricket. Marsh became an Australian legend in the 1970s, taking Don Tallon's aggressive and combative style behind the stumps to a new level. He remained at the top of his game for 14 years, breaking Ashes records galore in his final series in 1982/83.
Client Comments for Rod Marsh
Rod Marsh travels from South Australia Australia
- Rod Marsh's speech was well-suited to the audience of 400 pax oil industry executives. It was funny, well tuned and gave an insight into the conditions under which our top cricketers travel and play. The speech even appealed to the substantial number of overseas delegates in attendance who know little about cricket.
"Great support and follow through."
