One of Austalia’s finest batsmen Marnus Labuschagne is coming off an excellent stint in the T20 Blast for Glamorgan with hopes of getting a spot in the T20 World Cup. Australia did not have the services of their senior players for the five-match T20 International series against West Indies and it cost them a 1-4 loss.
Marnus Labuschagne has an impeccable record in Test cricket already for Australia and he is proving to become an excellent player in ODI internationals as well. However, he hasn’t been seen as an option in T20Is for Australia so far and his good form for Glamorgan might just open up the plans.
Labuschagne Opens Up On His Aspirations In T20 Cricket
Marnus Labuschagne mentioned that he wants to be playing for Australia in all three formats and he was quite honest about his strengths and weaknesses in the format. He stated that the selection part remains with the management and he wants to concentrate on improving his game. He was happy with the way he improved his T20 play through his Glamorgan stint and was keen to learn things.
“I want to be there, I want to be playing for Australia in all three formats, but there’s literally nothing more I can do in this format. I’ve shown some of the things I can do well and some things I need to improve, so [selection] is not in my hands.”
“Coming back to Glamorgan, it was one of my focuses to improve my T20 game and learn how to play role batting at three or four. At times I did it really well, at times I didn’t do it as well, but that’s part of learning,” Marnus Labuschagne was quoted as saying by BBC Sport Wales.
Labuschagne Delighted With His Growth In The Format
Labuschagne was particularly happy about how things went for him in the T20 Blast for Glamorgan and he added that he had felt the growth with the bat especially in the top order. He was overall satisfied to leave the country as a better player than before in the T20s especially.
“I was really excited to play the Blast, and grow with bat and all, so I think I leave here a much better player than I came which is always very satisfying,” he maintained.
Marnus Labuschagne top-scored for Glamorgan in the T20 blast with 390 runs at an average of 55.71.
