Mitchell Marsh: Australian cricketer Mitchell Marsh has admitted that it is a pity that his Indian Premier League team Delhi Capitals could not make it to this season’s playoffs as they lost in a do or die match against Mumbai Indians.
Delhi’s dream was broken
Delhi Capitals needed to beat Rohit Sharma’s team in their final league match, which would have ensured their place in the playoffs. But coach Ricky Ponting’s team lost by five wickets and crashed out of IPL 2022, after which they qualified for the playoffs at Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Marsh was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday, ‘He defeated Kovid-19 at the start of the league and performed brilliantly for Delhi in the last five matches of the season, including a 62-ball 89 against Rajasthan Royals on 11 May. The performance of runs was involved. 30-year-old Marsh said, ‘It is sad that we (IPL) could not reach the final. I got a real sense of how that head coach Ricky Ponting cares for his players. Ponting made me feel like a really important player for Delhi.
Marsh now wants to take IPL form in the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka starting June 7 and later the five-match ODI series against the Islanders. The Australian said that he would like to continue batting at No. Marsh said, ‘Hopefully I can maintain as much consistency as I can at number three and stay there. International cricket is really tough but you have to believe that you can do well and I think in the last 12 months I have come to believe that my best can come against anyone in the world.
