Marnus Labuschagne dismissal vs England: The Australian all-rounder would be regretting his dismissal at Headingley last night.

During the first day of the third Test of the ongoing 2019 Ashes series between England and Australia at Headingley, England all-rounder Ben Stokes dismissed Australia all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne in a highly outlandish manner.

It happened on the second delivery of the 52nd over when Labuschagne failed to read a full-toss from Stokes. Having played exceptionally well to score his third Test half-century, Labuschange successfully read some fine deliveries from the English bowlers.

Having said that, him being found wanting in front of the stumps off a full-toss was hard to digest. Completely misreading the delivery, the 25-year old batsman was stuck on his back leg and was given out by umpire Chris Gaffaney then and there.

Coming in to bat at No. 4 in the ninth over, Labuschagne was part of a praiseworthy 111-run partnership for the third wicket alongside opening batsman David Warner. After Warner’s dismissal 32nd over commenced a batting collapse, Labuschagne continued his efforts to bat alongside the tail-enders.

Top-scoring for Australia in the first innings, the right-hand batsman became the ninth Australian batsman to get out. While Labuschagne scored 74 (129) with the help of 10 fours, Warner contributed with 61 (94) with the help of seven fours.

Other than this pair, Australian batsmen failed to get going against the English attack. Having won the toss and chose to field, England captain Joe Root would be glad to bundled out the opposition for 179 in 52.1 overs. Having registered his maiden five-wicket haul in Tests, England fast bowler Jofra Archer was the pick of their bowlers with figures of 17.1-3-45-6.
