Labuschagne Misses Playing for Glamorgan

Australian batsman Marnus Labuschagne shares his disappointment on the fact that he will miss his return in county cricket. 

Marnus Labuschagne has very much excelled in his performance for Glamorgan last season. In fact, he scored 1,114 runs in 18 innings at an average of 65. In line with that, he also claimed 19 wickets with his leg-spin. Labuschagne was then called up to Australia’s Ashes and was signed up for a contract with Cricket Australia. 

He was staying in Australia to wait for some news about the resumption of county cricket matches. However, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, he learned that no professional matches are to be held in the UK before July 1. 

‘It was so important for me to go over there last year, and to continue to go over there. I really enjoy it and for me it's about continuing to grow and learn the art of batting. I'm actually very disappointed that I can't be over there playing for Glamorgan. I really enjoyed my time last year, everything about it. There's no better place to learn your game and learn how to play in different conditions than going over (to the UK) and playing county cricket’, Labuschagne said. 

Aside from that, he also shared how he keeps in contact with everyone at Glamorgan. With that, the 25-year-old player remains hopeful that county cricket may still be played this year. 

The Glamorgan County Cricket Club which Labuschagne plays for actively participates in the T20 Blast League. To learn more about it, check out Betwala.
