While Head hit 51 off 30 balls, using 10 boundaries, Marsh remained unbeaten on 66 from 36 deliveries, including 6 fours and as many sixes.

  • 112, v. SL, Dharamsala, 2017
  • 117 against Aus, Visakhapatnam, today
  • 135 v WI, Guwahati, 1987

“It was kind of fun. Always nice to get a good start when chasing such a small total. I was hoping Head would get a flyer and I could play it slowly. To be honest, I enjoyed playing swing and improving order. (About Starc) He’s been brilliant, it’s awful to be on slip when he bowls because it flies off the rim at about 80 miles an hour. But it’s great to see him bowl like this, we now have a rare chance to win an away game in India. said Marsh after the game.
