Memory lane with Marsh Published: 20 July 2013

Memory lane with Marsh

Former Australia wicket-keeper Rod Marsh remembered the 1972 Ashes series at the Home of Cricket with Lord's TV after ringing the five-minute bell on day three of the Investec Test between England and Australia.

In his first Test match at Lord's, Marsh was behind the stumps as Bob Massie took his famous 16/137 on Test debut as Australia secured a comprehensive eight wicket victory over England.

Marsh actually felt that Lillee, who took the other four wickets in that match, deserved more from that game.

"We love beating you as much as you love beating us!"



“Dennis was the best fast bowler I ever kept to, and he did provide me with a lot of chances," he told Lord's TV about the famous 'caught Marsh, bowled Lillee' combination.

The pair managed 95 dismissals in that manor, a world record.

Marsh is now an Australia selector and currently sits on the MCC World Cricket committee.
