Marcus Harris is an opening batsman for both Australia and Victoria and an Australian cricket record-holder.
Playing just his third first-class match for Western Australia in 2011, Marcus, then 18, became the youngest Australian ever to score a first-class 150, breaking a mark that had stood for 115 years!
He also played for the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League before making the switch to Victoria and the Melbourne Renegades for the 2016/17 season. But his dream remains the same: to one day represent Australia.
He was named man-of-the-match in the 2014/15 Sheffield Shield Final after scoring 81 and 158 against Victoria and backed this up two years later with another century (120) in the 2016/17 Final when playing for Victoria. He was also the highest run scorer for Victoria in their winning 2016/17 Sheffield Shield season and scored the second most runs for the 2017/18 season. He also topped the run scorers for the Melbourne Renegades in BBL07.
In 2018, after three outstanding Sheffield Shield seasons with Victoria, Marcus earned himself the coveted 'Baggy Green' when he debuted for Australia in the 1st Test against India at the Adelaide Oval.
