"I literally cannot wait for Big Bash to start," the all-rounder told perthscorchers.com.au on Sunday (September 17). "My body and shoulder feel really good, I've been taking it slowly but ticking all the right boxes so it'll be good to get back out there.

"The BBL has grown into an amazing tournament. Playing with the Scorchers for the last six years, we've had some awesome success and we're hoping we can maintain that winning culture this summer, too."

Marsh is expected to make a return as batsman in the early part of the domestic season.
