Mitchell Marsh scored 89 off 62 and David Warner scored his fifth half century of the season and a 144-run partnership between the pair helped Delhi Capitals chase down a target of 161 with eight wickets and 11 balls to spare in a crucial IPL game.
Marsh, Player of the Match, said, 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.
