It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Australia all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne is the biggest find in cricket of the year 2019. Having come in as a concussion substitute for Steven Smith during the Ashes, 25-year old Labuschagne has since then cemented his spot in Australia’s Test and ODI team.

In 21 international appearances since August last year, the right-hand batsman has scored 1,764 runs at an average of 60.82 including five centuries and 10 half-centuries.

It is worth mentioning that Labuschagne made it to the Ashes squad last year on the back of his sensational form in Division Two County season for Glamorgan.

In 10 First-class matches, Labuschagne had scored 1,114 runs at an average of 65.52 and a strike rate of 76.19 including five centuries and five half-centuries and was the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament.

Labuschagne, who also bowls leg-spin, has dismissed 12 wickets in 14 Test matches. In the same county season, Labuschagne picked 19 wickets at an average of 38.10, an economy rate of 3.10 and a strike rate of 3.76.
