Mitchell Marsh has seen a complete circle in the last couple of years for Australia. The flamboyant all-rounder has delivered goods against England in Ashes Trophy and then stormed himself into the leadership group. But, later, he failed to repeat his mojo either with the ball or bat to survive in the Test circuit for the national team.
On Poor Show In BBL:
Meanwhile, Mitchell Marsh apologises for fans for the poor show of the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League 2018-19. They have displayed pretty poor skills on the field to let themselves stay in the bottom half of the points table.
However, he is sure that they will make a strong return in the tournament to make things fall in place for the team. Mitchell Marsh believes that the execution is something, which is missing from the unit in the shorter format.
”All season we have not been able to put 40 overs together. There have been games this year where we have not played well at all. I can’t question the boys. We are doing everything we can off the field to make sure we are right, but we are not performing on the night. We need to assess it really quickly. We just have to keep working hard and trying to improve. We have shown signs with our batting over the past couple of weeks, but tonight was a backward step.”
It is disappointing:
He has been removed from the team for the series against Sri Lanka and called Marcus Stoinis to replace him. Meanwhile, the youngster doesn’t want to lose hope on his return to the Test fold, as he wants to keep the fight for the spot.
“It’s disappointing to not be there (after getting dropped). But I saw that one coming. I’ve been knocked around a bit this summer. But my dream of playing Test cricket is still not over. I’m only 27. I’ll keep fighting,” he signed off.
Perhaps, this is the time for Mitchell Marsh to pull up his socks and deliver for the team. It not only helps for Perth Scorchers but also will do a world of good for him before donning the coloured jersey for the Australian Cricket Team.
As far as his Test comeback is concerned, it will mostly rely on the performance of Marcus Stoinis, who is set to make a debut in the second Test against Sri Lanka. The main aim for Marsh would be upcoming Ashes Trophy.
