Shaun Marsh has just started his International Career playing his first match for Australia in the Twenty20 match against West Indies.
His stocks have risen so much in the past 6 months, thanks largely to a strong domestic season with WA and then a superb tournament in the IPL.
He's a very good batsmen who I think will end up taking over from Ricky Ponting as Australia's number 3 in the longer form of the game.
Geoff was a terrific opening batsman for Australia in the one day arena. His job of surviving and rotating the strike over was a big key, and he held the record for most ODI 100s for Australia, for quite some time.
In Test Cricket he wasn't as good as he could have been, he's probably remembered most for his century in the Ashes in 1989 where he batted the entire day with Taylor.
Geoff was also a very good fielder in the gully region.
My question is, will Shaun Marsh end up having a better career for Australia [excluding coaching career] than his father?
