Australia’s young batting backbone in Test cricket, Marnus Labuschagne has made an interesting revelation about his Test debut. Labuschagne is one of the most promising talents in Test cricket at the moment.

The amount of talent that Labuschagne possesses can be witnessed from the fact that the ‘God of Cricket’ Sachin Tendulkar recently said that Labuschagne reminds him of himself batting.

Labuschagne made his Test debut in 2018 when the Australian Cricket Team toured to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to face Pakistan in a two-match Test series.

Marnus Labuschagne has now shed light on his Test debut in the recently released video series named ‘The Test’ on Amazon Prime.

Marnus Labuschagne Reveals How He Felt After His Test Debut

Labuschagne had a debut to forget as he was dismissed on a duck in his very first Test match as a professional cricketer of the Australian Cricket Team.

Australia was under immense pressure when Marnus Labuschagne came into bat as Pakistan had clutched their grip on the visitors in the first innings of the first Test of the tw0-match series.

Labuschagne says, ” You know the journey of cricket is so rollercoastery. When you dream about playing your first Test, you’re never dreaming of getting a duck on debut. After I got a duck in the first innings, you sith there and go, Am I actually gonna make a Test run here? Am I gonna be the guy that gets a pair on Test debut and doesn’t play again?'”

Australia Went On To Draw The Test Match

The first Test of the series was one of the greatest Test games in Australia’s cricket history.

The Australian team was going through a transition at that moment as two of their most crucial players in Test cricket, Steven Smith and David Warner had been banned for the ball-tampering scandal.

Batting first, Pakistan posted a giant total of 482 runs in their first innings. Australia perished in their first innings on a total of 202 runs.

Pakistan declared their second innings on 181/6 and gave a mammoth total to the Kangaroos to chase.

No one believed that Australia could manage to even draw the game from that situation, but a resilient Tim Paine didn’t let this happen and the game ended in a draw.
