Mitchell Marsh fights back emotions as he pays a magnificent homage to Cricket Australia Awards skipper Pat Cummins


During Cricket Australia’s award ceremony, Mitchell Marsh accepted the prestigious Allan Border Award and praised captain Pat Cummins for his faith.Marsh scored a quick 118 runs at Headingley to celebrate his return to Test cricket in 2023. He scored 441 runs at a remarkable average of 49 during the ODI World Cup the same year, his best innings being an undefeated 177 against Bangladesh.Pat Cummins, the captain, who was instrumental in leading the team to victories against India in the World Test Championship and World Cup finals, lost the captaincy vote to Marsh. Third and fourth place on the list went to Steve Smith and Mitchell Starc, respectively. It was difficult for Marsh to contain his feelings as the Australian all-rounder accepted the award and thanked skipper Cummins for giving him the chance to make a return.

“You’ve altered my life and always see the best in me, even if I enjoy beer and can be a bit overweight at times. Playing under you is a dream because of your guidance and encouragement, Patty,” Marsh remarked at the occasion.
“I just wanted to give it another shot, and it’s been fantastic, so I talked to my wife about it a lot. She provided me with the life perspective I needed,” Marsh continued.The 32-year-old demonstrated his versatility as a batsman by accumulating 594 runs at an average of 66 throughout six Test matches. He scored 858 runs at an average of 47.66 in one-day internationals while keeping a strong strike rate of 113.94.
