1981 - Marsh claims 100th victim


Australia's Rod Marsh, the most successful wicket-keeper in Ashes history, takes his 100th catch in style with a diving effort to dismiss Bob Woolmer in the first Test of the 1981 series at Trent Bridge.

Marsh ended up with 148 dismissals in 42 Ashes Tests (141 catches, seven stumpings), having made his Test debut against England in November 1970.

He later became an England selector, helping the country he excelled against regain the Ashes in 2005.
