Delhi Capitals sit bottom of points table with just two wins from eight matches
Delhi Capitals suffered a nine-point loss in a close encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium on Saturday. Chasing a goal of 198, the Delhi Capitals came close but trailed by nine points.
Speaking about the game, Mitchell Marsh, who put up a remarkable 4/27 all-around show with the ball and 63 runs on 39 balls with the bat, said: “It was very disappointing to lose that one. We always talk about small margins in T20 cricket and there were probably a few areas where we let ourselves down, but still proud of the group and a lot of confidence in the group.”

Speaking about his personal performance, the Australian all-rounder said: “I try to keep my bowling very simple. I am very clear about my role. I try to use the wicket to my advantage with my knives and slow balls. You always need a little luck in T20 cricket, especially with my role. But the great reward for a little hard work.”
“It was a great partnership with Phil. I beat the first time with him and I really enjoyed it. At times throughout this tournament so far we have lost early wickets so it was good for us to be able to build a platform but unfortunately we couldn’t get ourselves across the line . But, being able to contribute with the bat was very nice and hopefully I can contribute to some more wins,” added Marsh, who has a strong 112-run partnership with Phil Salt.
Reflecting on the whole campaign so far, Marsh said, “It’s been very difficult. I think everyone shares their disappointment with how things haven’t gone our way so far. But we have a lot of young lads who are gaining valuable experience playing at this level which will also keep Delhi in good stead for the future.”

“We are still alive in the tournament, but we will have to play very good cricket over the next few weeks. It’s still there and we strongly believe in the group that we can do it.”
Delhi Capitals will face Gujarat Titans in their next match at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Tuesday.
