His decision to undergo keyhole surgery on his left ankle in January 2023 proved to be a game-changer, as he aimed to be fit for the mid-year Ashes tour. His return to the Test XI in the absence of Cameron Green saw him scoring a brilliant 118 runs and making significant contributions with the ball. This performance marked the beginning of his resurgence.

Over the next few Test matches, Marsh continued to shine, scoring half-centuries in five out of his next ten innings, including impressive knocks of 90 and 96 against Pakistan during the home summer.

Additionally, he took on the role of captain for Australia’s white-ball teams in Cummins’ absence and showcased his prowess during the ODI World Cup, notably scoring a career-high 177 not out against Bangladesh despite facing personal adversity with the loss of his maternal grandfather, Ross.
