Mitchell Marsh: I was focussing on every ball

Sep 3, 2014

In this video, Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh speaks to the media after his match winning innings against South Africa that helped Australia seal a berth in the triangular series final, at the Harare Sports Club on Tuesday. His valiant efforts propelled Australia to a challenging total of 282 in their 50 overs. On the other hand, Faf du Plessis’s century could not help South Africa to go over the line as they were 62 runs short at the end.

Australia scored 282 for the loss of seven wickets in the fifth One-Day International of the triangular series at Harare. Phillip Hughes and Mitchell Marsh made the biggest contributions for Australia scoring 85 and 86 respectively.

Australia started things off in style with Hughes hitting two boundaries off Dale Steyn in the first over itself. All was going well until the 11th over, when Aaron Finch fell trying to hit a big shot off Ryan McLaren. After his dismissal, Hughes combined beautifully with Steven Smith to rotate the strike and get the Australian total to  130 for one at the end of 29 overs. However, Smith fell in the 30th over and Glenn Maxwell, who walked in at No. 4, failed to fire and fell after scoring just two runs. The runs were drying up for Australia, and Hughes too departed for 85 trying to clear the fence.

It was looking like Australia won’t be able to reach 250, when Mitchell Marsh played a gem of an innings at the end. He hit three consecutive sixes off Dale Steyn in the 47th over. Marsh kept the tempo up for Australia and dispatched Ryan McLaren for 16 runs in the 48th over, and hit two consecutive sixes in the last over. The innings would definitely strengthen his case for inclusion in the Australia XI in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2015.
