Mitch Marsh loses Australian contract

Daily Mail UK – Mitch Marsh has lost his Cricket Australia contract less than seven months after being named Test vice-captain, as selectors returned Steve Smith and David Warner back to the country’s top 20 players.

Summary

  • Mitch Marsh has lost his Cricket Australia contract less than seven months after being named Test vice-captain, as selectors returned Steve Smith and David Warner back to the country’s top 20 players.
  • Test opener Marcus Harris has been rewarded with his first national contract, while fit-again quicks Nathan Coulter-Nile and James Pattinson were among the new faces.
  • “We believe the 2019/20 contract list provides us with a versatile group of players who can represent Australia across all three formats over the contract period,” national selector Trevor Hohns said.
  • Meanwhile, Marsh’s non-selection came after he was named the country’s new vice-captain alongside Josh Hazlewood for last year’s Test series against Pakistan.
  • He was subsequently dropped for the home summer with the exception of being called up for the Boxing Day Test, and hasn’t played in a one-dayer for his country since last January.
