Marnus Labuschagne has shared a video on social media in which he can be seen playing camping cricket. The video showed the player hitting a rough field. While playing a cut shot from the back foot and a drive later, Labuschagne also shows off his pull shot and defensive skills during practice. “Some camping cricket on one of the rougher fields I’ve ever played on. It also got a certified lowey,” the Australian batter wrote in his post.
