Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has stated that he wants to be the best finisher in world cricket over the next few years. The ongoing IPL 2021 and T20 World Cup 2021 are going to be a great opportunity for him to make a mark and become a better version of himself. And, Marcus Stoinis is pretty determined that he will realise his dream over the next three years.
“My next phase, the way I see it, over the next three years I want to be not only the best finisher in Australia, but I also want to be the best finisher in the world.
“So that’s what I’ve spent my time thinking about and preparing myself for. I’ve got a great opportunity to do it with Delhi, and a great opportunity in this World Cup. Whether it’s in this World Cup or the next World Cup, that’s up to me.”
Marcus Stoinis pulled out from Australia’s recent tours of West Indies and Bangladesh, citing bubble fatigue. The Australian all-rounder feels fresh now and desperate to get back onto the field.
“That was a big decision at the time. I wasn’t used to watching the team play and not being involved, knowing that’s what I want to do. And the first couple of weeks you’re also second-guessing yourself as to whether you should have gone on the tour.
“But it became more and more clear that that was the right thing to do for me. I’m feeling good now, feeling ready to go. I didn’t take much time off training. Because that’s another thing you realise when you take a break – that you love cricket. I love cricket, I love training,” Stoinis said.
Marcus Stoinis will be seen playing for Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2021. So far, he has managed to score 71 runs and take 2 wickets this season.
