Rod Marsh Heart-Attack: Australian wicket-keeping legend Rodney Marsh in hospital after ‘SEVERE Heart-Attack’

In a statement from Paul Marsh on behalf of the Marsh family, he explained the current situation.

“He (Rod) is currently in the fight of his life and remains in an induced coma in critical condition,” it read.

“At the moment this is a waiting game and we are unlikely to have any certainty for some time.

“We know there is a lot of interest in Dad’s condition and our family has been overwhelmed by the messages of love and support from all around the world. We have listened to and read every one of them and we are incredibly grateful to everyone.

“Dad would not still be here without the bravery and quick thinking of Dave Hillier and John Glanville. We will be eternally grateful to both of them.”
