“I was obviously very disappointed to miss out in the first Test, but I understood the reasons why. Ultimately, you’ve got two ways to go about it and enjoy the hard work, enjoy the challenge of getting back into that Test side,” Marsh said, as quoted by ICC.

Every Test match you miss out on is shattering. I got plenty of messages of support. I cop a fair bit but I do have a lot of people who care about me and always have support for me,” he further added.

He was ignored for the Adelaide Test despite scoring 151 for Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield. The snub proved a bit too much for him, affecting his performance as he then returned to lead Western Australia but could manage scores of 21 and 11 and take just one wicket.

This performance make his return to the Test side tougher.

Marsh has had a tough time with the bat since his 96 against South Africa. In 11 innings since then, he hasn’t crossed fifty and has only mustered five single-digit scores and two ducks.

On his batting form, he said, “I’d scored three first-class hundreds in my last six games. I still felt like I was in really good form and feeling very confident heading into last week.”

“But ultimately, I still had two chances (in the Shield) before the Test match to put a big score on the board and I didn’t do that. The message was clear – I needed more runs,” added the all-rounder.
