Mitchell Marsh performed well with both bat and ball but despite his all rounder effort Delhi capitals lost the match by 9 runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

After the previous match’s loss, SRH Captain Aiden Markram mentioned that his team wanted to play a certain brand of cricket and they were ready for loss while playing that kind of cricket. Today, they came out blazing with the bat, full of trust and intent to score big runs on board which ultimately paid off.

It was a bold batting effort from SRH batters. Their intent was clear that they wanted to play aggressive cricket throughout their innings.

After having a good start with the bat, they slipped out in the middle overs and were 83 for 4 after the conclusion of 10 overs. The good thing for them was that the opener Abhishek Sharma (67 off 36 balls) batted well throughout the innings.

Then the needed impetus was provided by South African wicketkeeper Heinrich Klaasen who scored 53 off 27 balls in no time to keep the scoring rate flourishing. Abdul Samad (28 off 21 balls) and Akeal Hosein (16 off 10 balls) played their role alongside Klaasen as Hyderabad posted 197 on board, highest total on this ground in IPL 2023.

After Delhi Capitals captain went for a duck, Mitchell Marsh and Phil Salt shared 112 runs partnership and kept Delhi in the game. However, once Salt was dismissed, DC lost wickets in clusters.

The middle order once again proved to be ineffective to the cause. None of them could even reach the 15 score except Axar Patel who scored 29 off 14 balls but the mountain was too big for him to climb alone.

The loss can take nothing away from how well Mitchell Marsh performed on the day. 27/4 with ball and then 63 off 39 with the bat, that’s a classical all-rounder performance from the big man.

Plenty of positives for both teams. SRH captain did make a mistake by giving 8th over to Umran Malik who conceded 22 runs in a single over but the damage was well controlled by Mayank Markande who has been no less than a brilliant bowler for SRH this year. His 20/2 in 4 overs was surley a game changing spell which allowed SRH to dominate the second half of DC’s chase.
