The cup honours former Australian wicketkeeping legend Rod Marsh and his contribution to the game both on and off the field.
Its design includes a jarrah stem and base to represent Mr Marsh's birthplace of Armadale, flanked by gold stumps engraved with his most famous cricketing achievements, including his then world-record 355 wicketkeeping dismissals during his Test career.
The cup also includes the Southern Cross, celebrating his composition of the Australian team victory song 'Under the Southern Cross I Stand'.
Western Australia and South Australia will play for the honour of holding up the Rod Marsh Cup, based on the results of their Sheffield Shield contests each year. A points-based system will determine the winner once fixtures are complete.
In September the State Government announced $100,000 over 3 years, for the Rod Marsh Wicketkeeping Academy, with 10 players chosen in the first intake.
Local cricket clubs have benefited from the DLGSC administered Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund and Club Night Lights Program — which has distributed $28.3 million to 106 projects over the past 5 years.
