The 58th match of IPL 2022 was played between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals at the DY Patil Cricket Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Delhi won the match by 8 wickets due to a wonderful partnership between of David Warner and Mitchell Marsh.

Mitchell Marsh received Man of the Match award for his 62 balls 89 and 2 for 25 in 3 overs. It was a outstanding all-rounder performance by the right handed explosive batsman.

After receiving Man of the Match award, Marsh said, “It was a tough game. Physically it’s tough when you bowl a bit and bat a bit. Slower balls and cutters, they were tough to score. 160 was par. But it’s about one good partnership. The first four-five overs of powerplay were about as tough a batting as I’ve had in T20 cricket. It was swinging, bit of seam there and there was bounce. Reminds me of Perth Stadium this wicket. Felt like the last couple of games I’ve got back to hitting the ball like I wanted to. I honestly thought I smashed it first, wasn’t worried one bit. Which is probably a good thing because I tend to look guilty when I think I’m out.”

Batting first, Rajasthan Royals posted 160 total on the board. After losing Buttler in the third over, R. Ashwin paced up the innings superbly. It was Ravi Ashwin’s half-century and Devdutt Padikkal’s quick innings that allowed Rajasthan Royals to score this total. Towards the end of the innings, they lost wickets in clusters and couldn’t make use of slog overs. In response, Delhi Capitals scored 161 runs for the loss of 2 wickets in 18.1 overs thanks to the valuable innings of Mitchell Marsh and Warner.

In this match, Mitchell Marsh played a wonderful innings for Delhi Capitals and scored a half-century. He completed his fifty in 38 balls which was his first in the tournament. However, when he on 89, he tried to slog Chahal over point but only found a top edge and lost his wicket. Marsh faced 62 balls and scored 89 runs with the help of 7 sixes and 5 fours. When he walked back to the pavilion, the whole Delhi dugout applauded and praised his innings. He proved to be a great assest for Delhi Capitals.
