Star Australian batting all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has come up with a big statement ahead of the ODI World Cup game against the Netherlands. Notably, the Aussies will take on the Dutch side in the next match of their ODI World Cup 2023 campaign at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Wednesday, October 25.

Meanwhile, the Aussie concern is also centered on the speculated return of star opener Travis Head who was out of the team due to a fracture in his left hand. He sustained this injury during the five-match series against South Africa last month. But in a recent line of developments, he joined the squad in New Delhi where Aussies will play their next match.

Apart from this, Head’s opening replacement and star Aussie all-rounder Mitchell Marsh also spoke on the same. Just a few days back, Marsh smashed an amazing, scoring 121 against Pakistan in the last match following a 52-run knock against Sri Lanka.

“He looked good, a bit of range-hitting last night. He says the hand feels good. So, I'm sure if he's fit, he'll be available for selection in the team,” said Marsh to reporters in New Delhi.

"Very happy to go back down to three. I've obviously batted there a lot over the last couple of years, so I feel really comfortable at three. And if and when Heady comes back in, I think that's the best position for me to play for this team,” he added later.

Furthermore, Marsh also reflected on the upcoming clash with the Netherlands; he said that any team, including Australia, would not take the risk of underestimating the Dutch boys, who registered a historic win against South Africa in Dharamsala.

“We've said it multiple times now in this tournament this year, there's absolutely no easy games. Tomorrow is no different for us. We respect the Netherlands, they're playing some good cricket and that will be a tough challenge,” he asserted.
