Ashes spot not on Marsh's mind - yet

SHAUN Marsh says his spell in English county cricket has set him up for a strong domestic season for Western Australia.

But Marsh said regaining his Test spot for the home Ashes series was not his focus yet.

In his two one-day knocks for WA in the past week, Marsh has scored 132 not out and 88 in the wins over Victoria and NSW.

The 34-year-old lost his Cricket Australia contract this year after averaging just 19 on the four-match tour of India.

Marsh played two first-class matches for English county Yorkshire, with 125 not out his top score. He also played 11 T20 games, scoring 289 at 41.28 with 60 not out his best.

"It's something that I haven't really thought about," Marsh told Perth radio 6PR.

"But it's something I haven't really thought about. I've gone away just to enjoy my cricket and I had a fantastic time up in England.

"I'm just looking forward to playing some good cricket for WA, see where that takes me.

"(I've) come back with some match practice under my belt, so I felt really good leading into this (one-day) competition."

Marsh's 23-match Test career has been hindered by persistent injuries, the last being a broken finger during the South Africa series at home last year.

But he believes his stint in England has him fit.
