New Delhi. Former India cricketer K Srikkanth has lashed out at Delhi Capitals batsman Mitchell Marsh. He even called Marsh a villain. Srikkanth believes that the Australian batsman is responsible for the defeat of Delhi Capitals. According to him, when Marsh was unable to score runs, he should have been retired like R Ashwin. In IPL 2022, Delhi Capitals had to face defeat by 16 runs in the match played against Royal Challengers Bangalore on 16 April. In this match, Dinesh Karthik played an innings of 66 runs while batting atish.
Batting first, RCB scored 189 for 5 in the match played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Dinesh Karthik played a stormy innings of 66 runs in 34 balls while batting aggressively. Apart from him, Glenn Maxwell scored 55 runs. To achieve the target of 190 runs for victory, there was a great challenge from Delhi Capitals. At the time when David Warner was batting aggressively, it seemed that he would spoil Karthik’s hard work. Warner was dismissed after scoring 66 runs off 38 balls. But after his dismissal, Mitchell Marsh, who came to bat, broke the team’s fleet. He was run out after scoring 14 runs in 24 balls.
Mitchell Marsh Villain
Former India opener Srikkanth criticized Mitchell March’s approach during a discussion on the Cricquehunt YouTube channel. Srikanth called him a villain. According to Srikanth, Marsh should have been retired like Rajasthan Royals spinner R Ashwin. He further said, “David Warner was batting very well but Marsh increased the pressure on him due to slow batting. Mitchell should have been retired. What Ashwin did is the best way. Because you had a strong batting line-up. Though Rishabh Pant tried but for me the villain is Mitchell Marsh.
