Marsh responds to Geoff’s brutal criticism
Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was brutally criticized by Aussie bowling great Geoff Lawson few days ago and Marsh didn’t take any time to respond to it.
Lawson said in an interview few days ago that “there’s no way I’m playing Mitchell Marsh [in Adelaide]” and feels the player had his chances to prove himself.
In response to it, Marsh gave a cheeky reply and said he’s looking forward to seeing the former Test cricketer.
Marsh told Fox Sports:
“Hi Geoff, how are you? Look, his comments are his comments, that’s his opinion. All I can focus on is preparing well for this Test match and preparing well for the summer, doing my best and that’s all I can do. People can say what they are going to say. But I’m looking forward to seeing him.”
Marsh’s place in the Test side has been questioned in the past several times and a bizarre performance in UAE against Pakistan has made him questionable even more.
However, Marsh also admitted that he should be questioned after the UAE series, but also expressed his excitement to play in front of the Aussie crowd once again.
“After the UAE, there’s no doubt that there are a few questions marks over me, so I’m just really pumped if I’m selected to get out there and play in front of Australian crowds again, its a great time of year. I am feeling good. I think No. 6 is a great position to bat especially if you’ve bowled a few overs you always get a bit of time to have a rest. I’m doing my best to make the No. 6 position my own in this team, so that’s all I can do.”
After the disastrous UAE tour, Marsh returned to Australia and smacked 151 runs in the Sheffield Shield which will definitely boost the all-rounder’s confidence ahead of the all-important series against the men in blue.
