Thanks Paul. I’d never heard of Labuschagne before the Ashes warm up matches and in the first five minutes of his call up I just felt the poor guy was horribly out of his depth. But I was proven wrong and by the time Smith was set to return to the team Labuschagne had earned his place through merit.
It was a gritty, promising start and it was pleasing to see him score runs back home.
As for my wife….. the more runs he scores the more she dislikes him so it’s not going well at the minute.
