Australian cricketer and Melbourne Renegades star Shaun Marsh has announced his retirement from professional cricket.

Marsh decided to hang his boots after scoring an unbeaten half century and winning Player of the Match to guide the Melbourne Renegades to a six-wicket win over the Melbourne Stars on Saturday night at Marvel Stadium.

"I have loved playing for the Renegades, I've met some great people over the last five years and the friendships I've made will last a lifetime. This playing group is special. They've been amazing to me, amazing teammates and even better friends,” Marsh said in a statement.

"Our members and fans are some of the most passionate out there and I'm so thankful for their support over the journey. Stick with us, there's a huge amount of talent in this group and I have no doubt they'll lead this group back to the top," the cricketer said.

"To the Renegades' coaches and staff and everyone behind the scenes - thank you for backing me in from the start and over my final years. It's made my job a little easier out in the middle," the cricketer said.

After his initial stint with Perth Scorchers, he moved to Melbourne in BBL|09.

“I owe a lot to the Scorchers, I’ve got some fond memories of playing in Perth and really enjoyed my time there. The back-to-back titles are up there for me as the most enjoyable moments I’ve experienced on a cricket field," he said.

Melbourne Renegades BBL Head Coach, David Saker said: "SOS is one of those blokes who's universally liked and admired by anyone who's ever played with or against him, domestically and internationally."
