Handling injuries is key to Marsh's success: Moody

Former Australia all-rounder Tom Moody, the man who transformed Shaun Marsh's career, feels that the young batsman's biggest challenge after giving up part lifestyle is his fitness.

Marsh, who fell for a duck during Australia's first innings in the Boxing Day Test, was struggling to get fit in time for the Test due to his recurring lower back problem.

"I don't think the issue is him playing consistent cricket; it's about the consistency of him staying on the park. That's his greatest challenge.

It's a tricky one for Shaun because he's clearly fit and as much an athlete as any other member in that squad, but he's got an issue with his lower back," said Moody, who was instrumental in shaping Marsh's career while being a Western Australia coach.
