Ricky Ponting, a legendary batsman and the head coach of the Delhi Capitals, praised Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh for his recent efforts in the ODI series against India. Marsh scored the most runs during the three-game series, with 194 runs at an exceptional average of 97.00.

DC captain David Warner will start the innings with youthful Prithvi Shaw, as per Ricky Ponting, who also stated that Delhi Capitals will stick with the same opening partnership from the previous season. Mitchell Marsh is anticipated to bat at position three.

“We’ve got two world-class international players at the top of the order and David Warner has been one of the leading performers in IPL history opening the batting. We’ve got Prithvi Shaw, he’ll open the batting with David Warner,” Ponting said on the sidelines of the jersey launch of Delhi Capitals as the franchise also signed a long-term partnership with DP World.

“Mitchell Marsh is most likely to bat at number three as he did for us last season and the games that he played, and he had some great impact on a couple of the games that we won last year. I don’t think I’ve seen him bat better than he is right now,” Ricky Ponting added.
