All-rounder Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out of the next four games of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, according to Delhi Capitals bowling coach James Hopes.
Marsh has played in both of DC’s matches thus far, against the Lucknow Super Giants and the Gujarat Titans.
“Marsh is not going to be available for the next few games. He is getting married,” said DC bowling coach James Hopes ahead of the clash vs Rajasthan Royals in Guwahati.
In his absence, the Delhi Capitals may turn to Rovman Powell as an all-rounder. Manish Pandey or Yash Dhull might fill the Number 3 spot.
Marsh didn’t have a great start to the season. He scored 0 and 4 in the two games he played in, both of which the Delhi Capitals lost. On the plus side, Marsh has resumed bowling, completing his 4-over quota in the second match.
Mitchell Marsh proposed to Greta after nearly two years of dating, and on September 11, 2021, they were engaged. Greta Mack graduated from the University of Western Australia and Montana State University. Greta prefers to keep a quiet profile despite being Mitchell Marsh’s partner.
Players marrying during the IPL is not unusual. Glenn Maxwell missed the opening week of IPL 2023 last year owing to his wedding. Because it is the Australian off-season, the majority of players marry in April and May when they are free of their professional obligations.
The opening pair will remain the same, with David Warner and Prithvi Shaw taking the field. Warner batted well in both games, although his strike rate was below average.
Shaw, on the other hand, has yet to make a meaningful contribution, with scores of 12 and 7 in the DC opener. The game against Rajasthan is critical for Delhi, as a loss would make it a hat-trick of losses. Their negative NRR is -1.703. After the Rajasthan Royals, the Delhi Capitals will face the Mumbai Indians in Delhi on Tuesday, followed by the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bengaluru on April 15.
