New Delhi: Australian player and member of Kings XI Punjab Shaun Marsh admitted that watching little-known batsman Paul Valthaty who ensured two consecutive wins for the team was a treat to watch.

He may have lost his opening slot to little-known Mumbaikar Paul Valthaty in this edition of the Indian Premier League, but Marsh is not complaining.

"Paul is batting really well in this season and he is a fantastic player. He has done well for the Punjab team in the last two games which helped us secure two subsequent wins. He put us in a winning position in the last two games. I am looking forward towards watching him bat again," Marsh said.

Marsh received the Orange Cap for scoring most runs in the 2008 IPL tournament as an opener. Despite missing the opening four games of the tournament, the Australian was the leading run scorer in the first edition of the Twenty20 league.

Marsh said he is happy with his present batting slot and is looking to make a comeback into the Australian one-day squad with his good show for the Kings XI in the IPL.

“Obviously, if I perform well in the IPL, then it will help me win back my place in the Australian team,” said the left hander.

"It's great that KXIP side again showed faith in me and bought me back at the players' auction. It's great to be part of Kings XI again," he added.
