Marnus Labuschagne has hit a purple patch in the 2021 Twenty20 (T20) Blast in England. Australia’s Labuschagne, one of Glamorgan’s overseas players, has 261 runs from five matches so far, at a strike rate of 135.23 with three consecutive fifties. He was not picked for Australia’s tour of the West Indies because of travel and quarantine problems and is expected to be with Glamorgan until July 22.
Since his international debut against Pakistan in 2018, Labuschagne, 26, has grown in stature and is currently the third-ranked batsman in Test cricket.
Labuschagne talks about his T20 game, strengths and weaknesses and aspirations for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
