The Australian all-rounder feels that his side is peaking at the right time as they registered their first back-to-back wins in the tournament. "I think that's our first back-to-back win of the season. We spoke about that today. It's been one of those seasons where we've been stop-start. In long tournaments like this, it's about peaking at the right time. I think over the last week or 10 days, we've played some really good cricket and that's a really good sign.
"We've got one more to go. We know if we win that, we'll be in the finals and we can give it a real good shake. I've got great belief in this team. We've got a lot of talent across the board and if we can string one more together going into the finals, it'll give us great momentum," Marsh told Star Sports.
