Big hitting all-rounder Mitch Marsh will again be helping the Perth Scorchers fire up the #TheFurnace, after becoming the Club’s latest player confirmed for a KFC BBL|07 return.

The 25-year-old has spent the off-season recovering from shoulder surgery and is expected to be at full fitness for the start of the Scorchers’ season.

“I literally cannot wait for Big Bash to start,” he said.

“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.”

With the WACA Ground holding its final BBL season before the Scorchers’ move to Perth Stadium, Marsh said the squad was determined to send it off in style.

“In the short time that the Scorchers have been around, we’ve really created a tough environment for other teams to come and play at #TheFurnace and that’s largely due to our fans,” he said.

“Twenty thousand screaming Scorchers supporters makes for a daunting environment.

“We are so appreciative of our fans and Members for creating that atmosphere and helping us win three championships.”

The first game at #TheFurnace this summer will be against the Melbourne Stars on Boxing Day.
