Opening batsman Shaun Marsh said he would have liked to have been a part of Australia’s 15-member squad for the ICC World Cup 2015, but is dealing with the disappointment by looking to play as much cricket as he possibly can.

According to theaustralian.com.au, Marsh said, “The World Cup would have been nice especially with it being in Australia but I’m now just looking forward to getting back to Western Australia now and playing with the Scorchers, and then getting back into some [Sheffield] Shield cricket after that.

“The boys have played so well so far in the tournament and it’s a big game so I’m looking forward to getting back out there with them. It’s been a pretty good summer so far and I feel like I’ve been hitting the ball pretty well, and I’ve found that consistency that has been lacking the past few seasons,” Marsh said.

Marsh was a member of Australia’s victorious Border-Gavaskar Trophy campaign, and scored a couple of fifties in the series as well, including an innings of 99. “I just have to keep building now and have a really big second half to the season. The last three weeks have been so much fun getting back into the Test team and doing OK. I felt really comfortable out there so hopefully I can build from that now and I’m just looking forward to the challenges lying ahead from that.”
