Rodney Marsh, The First Aussie Wicket Keeper To Score A Century Dead
Sydney, March 4 (TNA) Eminent Australian cricketer Rodney Marsh, remembered as one of the finest keepers behind the wickets, died after suffering a heart attack at a charity event on Friday. He was 74 and is survived by his wife Roslyn and sons Daniel, Paul and Jamie.
He played 96 Tests and was later a long-time national selector and had been in an induced coma and passed away at a hospital in Adelaide. Marsh made his debut in 1970 before retiring in 1984 with what was then a world-record 355 Test dismissals, many off the bowling of legendary paceman Dennis Lillee.
Rod was also the first Australian wicketkeeper to score a Test century.
