The 2021 T20 World Cup will be played in the months of October and November this year and Mitchell Marsh is confident that he will occupy the No.3 spot in the Australian batting lineup.
Marsh added that the beauty of the Australian batting lineup lies in the fact that from No.3 all the way down to No.7, all the batters can seamlessly float around in the batting order and can shift positions with ease.
Marsh further stated that the key is to be adaptable and be able to float around with the other willow wielders in the Australian side.
“I daresay that if I play in this tournament, I’ll be listed at number three. But I think the beauty of our squad is that, from three to six or even seven, all of us can float and it will just be a matter of game situation and who we think is best to go in next.
I think I’ll be at the top if I do play, but it’s about being adaptable and being able to float with the guys that we’ve got coming after me,” Marsh was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
I have worked hard on my game against spin: Mitchell Marsh
Mitchell Marsh also said that he has worked on improving his game against spin, and also his ability to rotate the strike as well. The Aussie all-rounder added that he has also worked on improving the number of boundary options at his disposal.
“I’ve worked really hard on my game against spin, probably more so around the rotation of strike and making sure that I’m getting off strike through those middle overs in white-ball cricket. Then the extension of that was trying to make sure I have plenty of boundary options,” added Marsh.
Mitchell Marsh also expressed his desire to play Test cricket once again for the kangaroos and added that he is going to play a lot of red-ball cricket to hone his skills. Marsh concluded by stating that the upcoming T20 World Cup will be an exciting one.
“I’d love to play Test cricket again for Australia at some point. I’m not going to have a lot of red-ball cricket to put my name up there for selection, but like many before me, if I can perform in white-ball then you’re still in the selectors’ eyes. But first things first is to be part of this World Cup, which is going to be very exciting,” concluded Mitchell Marsh.
