After 23 years at the top, Shaun Marsh will finally step down and end his stellar career at the top.
The 39-year-old, who made his debut for Western Australia in the summer of 2000/01 and represented Australia 126 times, has been forced to retire after a recent horrendous string of injuries.

Marsh has been a polarizing figure for much of his international career, with his 38 games at a baggy green spanning eight years, from his first in Sri Lanka in 2011 to his last in Sydney in 2019.
During his tenure he made six of his 14 international centuries, the other seven coming in ODIs but also had some low runs including just 17 runs in four Test series against India in the summer of 2011/12.
He finished his Test career with 2265 runs, a return that many believe fell far short of the number his talent could have produced.
Marsh, who turns 40 in June, played all three formats for Australia and his top-flight career spawned more than 12,000 runs, including 32 centuries.
Last summer he captained to WA to a Sheffield Shield title, Marsh’s first.
He last played for WA when the Sheffield Shield season resumed a month ago when he sustained a finger injury and has not played since.
Marsh, who turns 40 in June, will fulfill his Big Bash contract with the Melbourne Renegades next season. He is the seventh-highest all-time runs scorer in the BBL with 2,629 runs in 74 games.
