1 run in 1 crore
Marsh, who played a big role in making Australia the T20 World Champion in 2021, was bought by Delhi for 6.50 crores in the mega auction held before IPL 2022. The last season was fine for him, but this time his condition is very bad. He has been dismissed twice out of his 4 innings. That is, till now the cost of his one run to Delhi has been Rs 1 crore only.
Although Marsh has made some contribution in bowling. He has bowled 43 balls so far, in which 3 wickets have come in his account. Despite this, his overall contribution is negligible compared to the prestige and value. Although Delhi still have at least 8 matches left in the season and they can change the situation in these 8 matches, but at the moment Marsh, like many other players, is becoming the reason for Delhi’s defeat instead of victory.
