Australia’s Melbourne Cricket Ground has always been considered astonishing. There is so much bounce at times that even the Australian cricketer playing here gets surprised. Something similar was seen during the ongoing Boxing Day Test between India and Australia. In fact, Mohammed Siraj’s fast forward bouncer went to the helm of Marnus Labushane.
During the Australian innings on the first day of the second Test, Mohammed Siraj had a very strong attack on the second ball of the 36th over. The ball was a bouncer and when extra bounce was found, Marnus Labushane got the ball in his head until he understood. It is good helmet that he did not get any serious injury. Immediately the medical team reached the ground and performed the necessary kanaksan. During this time, players including Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane were seen asking about the condition of Labushane.
Interestingly, the first Test wicket of Mohammed Siraj was also left by Marnus Labushane. Siraj got him caught by Shubman Gill for 48 runs. Gill also had his first Test catch. It fell in the 50th over of the innings on the wicket. Marnes hit 4 fours in 132 balls.
