Want to continue our winning ways: Marsh

Want to continue our winning ways: Marsh
Mit­chell Marsh didn’t get to bowl a single over in Pune as India lasted no more than 70 overs both innings combined.

The pace-bowling all-rounder hopes to get some overs on the Chinnaswamy pitch which hosts the second  of the four Tests  from Saturday.  Excerpts:

On Australian success in Bengaluru: Yeah, that's something we've spoken about as a group. Although none of us has played here we want to continue our winning ways at this ground. Hopefully that'll be the case in six days' time.

On Indian response after the loss: We know India is a proud cricketing nation. This team will certainly come hard at us. We're expecting a great fight. Although we're 1-0 up, it's going to be game on.

On the Pune victory: Probably one of the best victories I've played in in my 20 Tests. I was pretty emotional at the end of the game. It was fantastic. To be able to spend 80 balls in the second innings on that wicket has given me a lot of confidence to hopefully score a few runs in this game.

On practising playing spin: It's just something that I've learnt from when I debuted in Dubai a couple of years ago. I had quite hard hands when I first played in the subcontinent. I've been trying to work on my defence, playing with soft hands so that it takes the fielders around the bat out of the game as much as possible.

On the look of the pitch at Chinnaswamy: It Looks like a reasonably good wicket. Pretty dry, there's a few cracks already. But like I said before we try not to read too much into the actual wicket. At the end of the day, it's 22 yards and both the sides have got to bat and bowl on it. It's about preparing as best as we can.
