Western Warriors batsman Mitch Marsh made an unbeaten 92 on day three of the Bupa Sheffield Shield Final against NSW Blues at Manuka Oval.
“We’ve got to come out and take eight wickets tomorrow and do that as quickly as we can,” Marsh explained. “We know it’s going to be tough work, we still believe we can chase down any total.
“We’ve fought hard throughout this whole year in certain situations where we probably shouldn’t have won games so that gives us great belief.”
Missing out on a century
“Falling short is irrelevant,” Marsh said. “It was good to spend some time out there at a crucial time.
“Obviously the partnership with Shaun was much needed.
“It would have been nice to have a few more – we’ve got to fight tomorrow.”
“It was tough for probably an hour there, when I scored about one run,” Marsh continued. “They bowled really well, it was a stage of the game where they were applying a lot of pressure and we were trying to soak it up.
“We lost a few wickets and lost our way towards the end.
“We’ve seen what they did to us, no doubt we can do that tomorrow.”
