Star Australian Test batsman Marnus Labuschagne has said that one doesn’t necessarily need the title of the leader of the team to be the actual leader.

Marnus Labuschagne has been a regular member of the Australian Test team for quite some time. However, now he has shown interest in taking over the captaincy responsibility of the team.

Meanwhile, in an interview with News Corp, he said that he always makes sure to put his team ahead of himself.

For me, absolutely, I would love to captain Australia. Everyone would love that. But for me, it’s about making sure I put the team first and when you’re talking about being a leader, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need the title. You can be a leader without the title, and I think that’s the role I can play,” he asserted.

Currently, Australian Test captain Tim Paine is already 36, Australia has started to look for his successor, and speedster Pat Cummins and Steve Smith are the front runners for the role.

Meanwhile, Paine has said that Marnus Labuschagne would be a good leader as he is a great thinker and a good team man. Paine also feels that in the next couple of years, Labuschagne will definitely take the step up.

I think he’d be a good leader. Marnus is a great thinker of the game. He’s a good team man, he’s got so much enthusiasm for his team and the game. In terms of our cricket team improving and Marnus evolving, I think in the next couple of years, we’ll definitely see him take the step up,” Paine said as quoted by News Corp.

“He’s got some real natural leadership ability, and if that’s harnessed and helped, I think he’ll be a great captain.”
