Australia batter Marnus Labuschagne is a fun character and none can deny that. Other than his quirky chats with opposition players, Labuschagne’s on-field antics are also fun to watch. While sometimes the Aussie batter is caught napping in the dressing room, Labuschagne was also caught doing something weird during the second Ashes Test.

As the Australian was batting on Day 1 of the 2nd Test, Labuschagne was captured doing something unhygienic that caught the fans’ attention. Labuschagne dropped the gum he was chewing on the ground while the batter was getting ready to bat.

While many expected that Labuschagne will let go of the chewing gum, the Aussie batter picked it up and quickly put it back in his mouth and everything returned to normalcy.

Talking about Marnus Labuschagne’s batting performances in the Ashes series so far, the former World No.1 has failed to live up to the reputation. Labuschagne has failed to put up a big score, managing 0, 13, and 47 in three innings so far. Also, the Aussie has fallen in the same manner to two different bowlers so far.

While England’s veteran pacer Stuart Broad managed the best out of Labuschage in both innings of the first Test, getting the batter caught behind, Ollie Robinson dismissed Labuschagne in the first inning of the Lord’s Test. The right-handed batter is facing issues when the bowler is creating an angle from wide of the crease. On all three occasions, Labuschagne played for the line while the ball straightened and picked up the batter’s outside edge.

Nevertheless, despite Marnus Labuschagne’s failures, Australia have a 1-0 lead in the five-match series so far. The Pat Cummins-led team beat England by two wickets in the first Ashes Test. In the second game so far, Australia are in a commanding position, having scored 416 in their first innings. Steve Smith starred for the visitors with his 32nd Test century.
