`Out of favour` Shaun Marsh shifts focus from Tests to ODIs

Sydney: Australian player Shaun Marsh is doing his best to put ambitions of a Test recall aside as he looks to cement his place in the Australian one-day side.

According to news.com.au, the match against Scotland was only the second ODI appearance since October, 2011 for Marsh, who has drifted in and out of the national limited overs teams.

Marsh`s Test career has been similarly frustrating and after scoring 141 on debut against Sri Lanka in 2011, a disastrous series against India two months later meant his stint was short-lived, the report said.

The 30-year-old admits he`d love another crack at Test cricket in the return Ashes series in Australia later this year but he has a more pressing focus in the five-match ODI series against England, starting on Friday, the report added.

Marsh said that he was feeling good with his game, adding that he was looking forward to the challenge of the ODI series against England, and not thinking about the Ashes.
