Perth Scorchers coach Adam Voges says Mitch Marsh is making good progress following a hamstring issue and is on course to play in Friday's Big Bash final.
The Scorchers will face the Sydney Sixers in a repeat of last year's final at Marvel Stadium and Marsh is priced at 5/1 to be named player of the match.
The Scorchers were sweating on the fitness of Marsh after he suffered a hamstring injury during the 48-run win over the Sixers last Saturday.
Thankfully scans have cleared him of any serious damage and Voges says his star allrounder has been able to train ahead of Friday's big dance.

A final decision has yet to be made but by the sounds of things Marsh will be taking his place in the Scorchers side.
"Mitch is going well," Voges told reporters. "The scans the other day showed no real major injury, which was good news.
"Mitch had a bit of a run around today and a gym session and looked like he was moving pretty well. We’ll have another top-up training session, our last training session, tomorrow night.
"So we’ll put him through his paces a little bit again and then make a final call, but all looking pretty positive at this stage."
With the Scorchers unable to play in Perth they nominated Marvel Stadium as their home venue and Voges said that was done for very good reason.
"I think we’ve played more at Marvel than what we have at home the last couple of years," Voges added.
"The guys have really started to understand the wicket itself, the dimensions of the ground, and just the way to play it."
Looking forward to the week aheadr
