Mitchell Marsh is now making it a habit to be Australia’s crisis man in ODIs. On Tuesday, his composed 79 not out saw Australia win the eighth ODI of the tri-nation tournament against West Indies. The win helped Australia seal a spot in the final.

Chasing 283, Mitchell put up a 122-run stand with his skipper Steve Smith and then added another quick 62 with Glenn Maxwell to see Australia home. The younger of the Marsh brothers now has a sizeable fan following and cheering him from miles away in Australia was his little nephew. On a serious note, the newborn Austin Ross, who is expected to take the Marsh family’s sporting legacy forward has no clue what the sport is all about.

It is good to see the blooming brotherly love. The Marsh family has given a lot to cricket. Geoff Marsh was an Australian opener, both his sons Shaun and Mitchell are current Australia players and his daughter Melissa played basketball in WBNBL. Earlier this month, Shaun and Rebecca were blessed with a baby boy Austin Ross.
