Taking a lesson from the humiliating defeat in Mumbai in the first match of the ODI series, Australia defeated Team India by 10 wickets in the second ODI played in Visakhapatnam. Nothing went well for India in this match. First captain Rohit Sharma lost the toss, then poor batsman and then disappointing ineffective bowling. After Australia’s resounding victory, team openers Mitchell Marsh and Travis Head expressed their happiness while talking to the media.
Statement of Mitchell Marsh:
Mitchell Marsh, who played an unbeaten 66 in just 36 balls with the help of 6 sixes and 6 fours, said, ‘It was a bit fun. It is always good to have a good start when you are chasing a small target. I was expecting Travis head and I can play at a slower pace. To be honest, I am enjoying playing swing and batting in the top order. Please tell that during this series, Mitchell Marsh has been promoted as an opener. He also played a brilliant inning of 81 runs in the first ODI.
What did Travis Head say?
Travis Head, who scored an unbeaten 51 off 30 balls with 10 fours, said, ‘It was nice to contribute, it is really good to take the partnership forward. We were a bit organized so took time first and then started the attack. It was good to have Pearl Marsh on the other side. It is very rare that both of us go out to bat at the same time. Our partnership was very understanding and good. It was fun playing together. Head could score only 5 runs in the last match but in this match he fully supported Marsh.
