Mitchell Marsh set to join Delhi Capitals (DC) for IPL 2022 after injury scare: Australian all-rounder Mitchell March is now confirmed to join Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals (DC) for the ongoing edition of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL). The development was confirmed by Cricket Australia (CA) on Wednesday.
It’s noteworthy that Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out of the ongoing Pakistan vs Australia white-ball leg owing to his injury. The all-rounder sustained a hip-flexor injury during one of his practice sessions on March 27th and was subsequently ruled out of the first ODI against Pakistan.
Marsh was acquired by the Delhi Capitals (DC) during the player auctions 2022 for a sum of INR 6.5 Crores.
Cricket Australia in a statement said that Marsh will travel to India and will join his IPL franchise Delhi Capitals (DC) post his isolation period. The cricketer will complete his recovery under physiotherapist Pat Farhart, who is associated with Delhi Capitals since IPL 2020.
“Marsh will travel to India to link with the Delhi Capitals squad where former Australian and current New South Wales physiotherapist Pat Farhart will manage his recovery following an isolation period,” Cricket Australia said in a statement on March 30 (Wednesday).
Notably, all the centrally contracted Australian players, including Mitchell Marsh, will miss all the IPL matches until April 6 owing to their country’s policy of not featuring in any international leagues when their national side is engaged in a bilateral series.
The likes of Glenn Maxwell, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood will all be free to take part in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 from April 6 onwards.
Mitchell Marsh said that he is disappointed to miss the Pakistan white ball led, but is hoping to join the Aussie squad before they head for their next tour.
“Being able to focus on my recovery without the travel and isolation break is the best approach. I am disappointed to miss the Pakistan series but look forward to re-joining the Australian squad for our next tour,” Marsh said.
The Aussie all-rounder has scored 225 runs in 21 IPL matches at a decent average of 17.31. Moreover, the cricketer has scalped 20 wickets in the biggest T20 league with his fine bowling skills.
