Marnus Labuschagne, who scored an impressive 44 in the first innings of the fifth and final Test of the Ashes 2021-22, was dismissed in one of the weirdest ways ever seen on cricket field.

Earlier, the match didn’t start well for Australia. The home team was asked to bat first after England won the toss. Joe Root-led team was right on the money from the first over of the game.

David Warner couldn’t open his account and was sent back by Ollie Robinson. Even last Test hero Usman Khawaja didn’t survive for long and scored just 6 runs. The left-handed batsman got a good delivery from Stuart Broad, which Joe Root caught.

One of the best batters in Test cricket, Steve Smith, was at the crease for two balls. Even the right-handed batter was dismissed without troubling the scorers.

However, the wicket of Marnus caught everyone’s attention. He went across the stumps in pursuit of a boundary but fell over. Labuschagne missed Broad’s delivery completely, which shattered the stumps.

Pat Cummins was seen smiling at the mode of dismissal. Even the commentators called it one of the weirdest ways to lose a wicket.
