Marnus Labuschagne bowling bouncers: The Australian all-rounder’s county club has released a video compiled of him bowling bouncers.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Australia all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne is the biggest find in cricket of the year 2019. Having come in as a concussion substitute for Steven Smith during the Ashes, 25-year old Labuschagne has since then cemented his spot in Australia’s Test and ODI team.
In 21 international appearances since August last year, the right-hand batsman has scored 1,764 runs at an average of 60.82 including five centuries and 10 half-centuries.
It is worth mentioning that Labuschagne made it to the Ashes squad last year on the back of his sensational form in Division Two County season for Glamorgan.
In 10 First-class matches, Labuschagne had scored 1,114 runs at an average of 65.52 and a strike rate of 76.19 including five centuries and five half-centuries and was the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament.
Labuschagne, who also bowls leg-spin, has dismissed 12 wickets in 14 Test matches. In the same county season, Labuschagne picked 19 wickets at an average of 38.10, an economy rate of 3.10 and a strike rate of 3.76.
A recent video of Labuschagne is doing the rounds on social media platform Twitter. Labuschagne is seen bowling quick bouncers from a short run-up to surprise the opposition batsmen.
The same was uploaded after a fan requested Glamorgan to upload a collection of Labuschagne’s bouncers from the county season. The 45-second video is being liked by fans for spinner don’t usually bowl bouncers with such a frequency.
