Marnus Labuschagne has been included in the Aussie side after Steve Smith was ruled out of the 3rd Test due to concussions.
So far, Marnus Labuschagne has grabbed the opportunity with both the hands and has been scoring freely and consistently for his side.
The Southpaw took control on the 2nd Day as well when the English pace attack came back hard after getting out for just 67.
The Aussies lost wickets in quick successions but Marnus was on top of his game throughout. He scored a valuable half-century and he’s unbeaten going into the 3rd Day of the match. Australia lead by 283 runs and they would look to bat as long as possible to stretch that lead to over 300, maybe more.
