Australia all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne has been in the limelight for the last couple of months. After a successful Ashes series in England, Labuschagne is currently playing in the Marsh Cup where he did a stunning run-out. During the game between Queensland and Victoria in the ongoing Marsh Cup, Marnus Labuschagne brilliance left Chriss Tremain dismissed in the 29th over. He was fielding at the cover, diving to his right and saved a single.
However, while diving and throwing the ball to the keeper, the all-rounder lost his pant but he didn’t get diverted from doing his job. He quickly threw the ball to the keeper’s end to get Tremain out and bring Queensland back in the game again. Cricket Australia (CA), on the other hand, came up with a funny caption to share the video on their official Instagram account.
“No pants, no worries for @marnus3 with this cheeky #MarshCup run-out,” they posted the video with this caption.
Meanwhile, Queensland had put up a huge total of 322 for nine on the board where the captain Usman Khawaja scored 138 off 126 balls. Marnus Labuschagne scored a vital 38 runs before restricting Victoria within a below-par and registered a 168-run victory.

Meanwhile, Marnus Labuschagne performed really well in the Ashes after he came as a concussion substitute of Steve Smith during the second Test. Since then, he has been in a good form with the bat and finished as one of Australia’s highest run-getter in the series. Australia have successfully retained the Ashes as well.
He finished with 353 runs from nine innings including five half-centuries. With this form, he is expected to be in the next series. His inclusion will be important during Australia’s next series against Pakistan which will begin from November 21 in Brisbane.
