Mitch Marsh on course to play in the BBL final | Camden Haven Courier

Perth Scorchers star Mitch Marsh looks all but certain to make Friday’s BBL Final at Marvel Stadium after successfully negotiating another training session on Wednesday.

Marsh has been in doubt for the decider since suffering a mild hamstring injury in the team’s 48-point win over the Sydney Sixers last week.

Scans have cleared Marsh of serious damage and the 30-year-old is desperate to prove his fitness.

Scorchers coach Adam Voges said Marsh’s prospects are looking good.

“Mitch is fine,” Voges said.

“The scans the other day showed no real major injuries, which was good news.

“Mitch did a bit of running today and a gym session and he seemed to be moving well.

“We’ll have another complementary training session, our last training session, tomorrow night.

“So we’ll put it through its paces a bit and then make a final call, but everything looks pretty positive at this point.”

Marsh has been in stunning form this season, averaging 68.4 to go with a strike rate of 147.

His bowling has also been a handy weapon, but it remains to be seen whether the hamstring injury will limit him to a batting-only role.

Scorchers’ ability to reach the final was remarkable considering they have played all but one game away from home.

Voges said the Scorchers decided to name Marvel Stadium as their venue for the finals given their good form in recent years.

“I think we’ve played more Marvel than we’ve had at home the last two years,” Voges said.

“Guys have really started to understand the wicket itself, the dimensions of the pitch and how to play it.”
