The inaugural Captain of the Perth Scorchers, North is one of the most experienced, respected, and tactically astute players in Australian cricket, providing a cool head to any side.
North was a key member of the team which qualified for the inaugural KFC T20 BIG FINAL last season, which enabled the Scorchers to claim a place in the upcoming Champions League T20 tournament in South Africa.
The skipper proved an ideal foil for fellow opener Herschelle Gibbs at the top of the order in BBL|01, scoring 273 runs at 39, which included two half centuries, and his strike rate was a highly-credible 120.26 runs per 100 balls.
Marcus has spent many Australian winters in the United Kingdom playing county cricket, including 2012 when he was at Glamorgan. While in the north east of England he met his wife, and he is the proud father of a two-year old son and newborn baby daughter..
