Australian batter Marnus Labuschagne showed gratitude towards Joe Root and the England cricket team for making the Ashes series ‘possible’ despite the rise in the number of covid-19 cases across the country.
Prior to the start of the series, there were questions on whether the tour could be held due to the strict quarantine rules in place for the English players. However, they decided to push through it and ended up touring down under.
Although the result went against them, Root’s men held up their end of the deal and made the series possible, providing entertainment to the cricketing fans during the pandemic times.
Here’s how Marnus Labuschagne thanked England:
“Thanks to @root66 and the @englandcricket team, staff, and families for coming out and making this Ashes series possible. It’s not easy being away from home at the best of times, let alone in and out of bubbles, so thanks again & safe travels home,” he wrote on Twitter.
Root and co. failed miserably in the series, conceding the series 0-4. They managed to salvage a draw in the SCG Test which is the only silver lining they can take away from this tour.
As for the Aussies, the return to form for Usman Khawaja and Travis Head bodes well for them as they embark on a tour of the Asian countries very soon.
