This was a touching moment in the team huddle before play.
WHEN Geoff Marsh introduced son Shaun together with his baggy green cap before play, they became the second sister and son combination to play Check cricket for Australia.
It was a tiny bit emotional, captain Michael Clarke said later.A few of the boys were holding back tears.
It is a remarkably rare statistic for cricket's most successful country through 134 years of Check history.
In all 45 men have now followed their fathers in to national teams.
The first was Syd Gregory, who played for Australia against England in 1890, only 13 years after his sister, Ned, had played in the inaugural Check match at the MCG.
Yet it's taken well over a century for another Australian to follow in his fathe's footsteps.
