Delhi Capitals needed to beat Rohit Sharma's side in their final league fixture, which would have secured their playoffs berth. But the Ricky Ponting-coached side lost by five wickets and were dumped out of IPL 2022, and Royal Challengers Bangalore sneaked in.
Marsh, who overcame a bout of Covid-19 at the start of the lucrative league and gave some commanding performances in the last five games of the season with the Capitals, including a 62-ball 89 performance against Rajasthan Royals on May 11, told Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday how bad he felt after his team failed to make the grade.
"It was a shame we couldn't get into the (IPL) finals. I got the real sense for how he (head coach Ricky Ponting) cares for his players and that was probably how he was as a captain and a leader of a team — it's the way he makes you feel. He made me feel like a really important player for Delhi," said the 30-year-old Marsh. IANS
