Mitchell Marsh IPL 2022: Things have been really unfortunate for the Delhi Capitals (DC) in the last few games of this Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season. The Rishabh Pant-led DC team managed to win their opening match of the competition against Mumbai Indians and then conceded two back-to-back losses at the hands of Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants. Delhi Capitals will now be facing off against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on 10 April, 2022.

For the Delhi Capitals, Australia’s big hitting all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has already completed his mandatory isolation period and also on the process to recovery from his hip injury. After the game against Gujarat Titans, Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting and assistant coach Shane Watson both mentioned that Marsh is progressing quite well from his injury issue and looks on track to be available for selection in the game against Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday. Earlier, the Australian all-rounder had sustained a slight hip flexor strain right before the start of the limited-overs series against Pakistan, but then he decided to travel to India for the IPL 2022 season.

“We are hoping that he (Marsh) is going to be available for the game on 10th (against Kolkata Knight Riders). He picked up that slight hip flexor strain in Pakistan. But fingers crossed, Davey should be there for the next game and Mitch Marsh for the game after,” said Ricky Ponting after the game against Gujarat Titans.

It will be interesting to see whether Mitchell Marsh regain complete fitness for the crucial match against KKR on Sunday. If termed fit, Marsh is very much likely walk back straight into the DC playing 11 in place of Rovman Powell who has failed to deliver the goods with the bat so far in this edition of the Indian Premier League.
