However Marsh believed the Potchefstroom collapse was not trigger for alarm.
“Hopefully we study rather a lot from it,” Marsh mentioned on the post-match presentation. “There is not any doubt we’ll be uncovered to these circumstances all through the World Cup and we’ll must be higher. However I feel the final 12 to 18 months, it is our second lack of that interval and we have now typically performed spin rather well. It is an space that we have totally improved in. So tonight could also be just a little slip-up and hopefully we will rectify that within the subsequent recreation.”
Australia might nicely get spinning pitches of their first three video games within the World Cup as they face India in Chennai after which South Africa and Sri Lanka in Lucknow.
“Ash [Agar] wasn’t accessible for choice at present, in order that made it powerful to play the 2 spinners. And Zamps, he is obtained a giant workload arising, so we thought at present was alternative to relaxation him and provides Tanveer [Sangha] a chance”
Marsh on why Australia performed just one spinner in Potchefstroom
Including to the priority is the health of their spin choices. Agar has performed simply two ODIs this yr and is unlikely to play one other till the warm-up video games of the World Cup as he’s flying residence from South Africa on Wednesday for the beginning of his first little one having performed only one recreation within the sequence.
Australia desires the pliability to have the ability to play two spinners within the World Cup, particularly on spinning tracks like Chepauk in Chennai, and Agar’s health will probably be essential with Marsh admitting he would have preferred two spinners in Potchefstroom.
“Ash [Agar] wasn’t accessible for choice at present, in order that made it powerful to play the 2 spinners,” Marsh mentioned on the post-match press convention. “And Zamps, he is obtained a giant workload arising, so we thought at present was alternative to relaxation him and provides Tanveer [Sangha] a chance.”
“I believed Travis Head bowled exceptionally nicely,” Marsh mentioned. “It was actually good for him to get a chance to bowl and we had been in a position to, I suppose, pull them again a bit by the center.”
Australia will proceed to experiment with their line-up within the ultimate two video games. They hope to have Cameron Inexperienced and Spencer Johnson return for a minimum of one recreation every however neither will probably be risked if they aren’t fairly proper.
“Hopefully Greeny will have the ability to play possibly the final recreation,” Marsh mentioned. “I am not sure what number of extra days he has obtained with the brand new concussion protocols. However we definitely will not be taking any dangers with that type of stuff. And Spencer is hopefully monitoring nicely to play in a kind of two video games. Once more, he’s early in his worldwide profession, and we have to take care of him. Hamstrings are one thing you’ll be able to’t actually rush again however hopefully, he’s match for one of many previous couple of video games and we will get a have a look at him.”
