The fifth and final Ashes Test is currently going on where England won the toss and opted to bowl first. Surprisingly, Australia lost three quick wickets within the first ten overs. Later, Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head started to steady the ship.
While they added 71 runs before Stuart Broad removed Labuschagne and it came in a weird manner. Marnus Labuschagne was batting at 44 when he was clean bowled while trying to play across the line.
He shuffled way too much even before the ball came out of Broad’s hand, but then the spikes slipped and Marnus Labuschagne fell. It was a full middle-stump ball and once the batter was on the ground, there was little chance of the bat making contact with the ball. A comical dismissal but England grabbed it with both hands.
