On the very first day of the third Ashes Test at Headingley , Australian cricketer Mitchell Marsh , who was making his return to Test cricket after nearly four years, marked his turning point by knocking 118 runs at just 118 balls in Australia’s total of 263 runs . He showcased his skills by a brilliant catch at first slipping off Zak Crawley’s bat, courtesy of a delivery from David Warner .



At the close of play, England were 68-3, trailing by 195 runs, as they missed many chances to Marsh.

Root’s dropped catch gone wrong for England, as it would have reduced Australia to 98-5.

Marsh got his hands on these let-offs and builed a superb century, forming a crucial partnership of 155 runs with Head, who contributed 39, the second highest score in Australia’s innings.

This Test match marked Marsh’s comeback to the longest format of the game after his last match against England at The Oval in 2019.

“There’s always times when you spend a bit of time away from the game where you think you might not get back,” Marsh told reporters.”It’s taken a lot of hard work, I chose to have ankle surgery and miss last summer to get on this tour knowing I was going to be Greeny’s understudy. Really proud to get back.”

Ollie Robinson said “We felt a couple of wickets away, but Mitch Marsh played fantastically well and was difficult to bowl at.”
