South-African born batting all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne has developed into one of Queensland and Australia’s mainstays after a breakthrough Ashes series in England in 2019.
Marnus is the leading run scorer in both First-Class and Test Cricket in 2019. Combining handy leg-spin, brilliant fielding and crafty batting, Labuschagne was the second highest run-scorer in the Sheffield Shield in 2017-18 and was a key contributor to the Bulls title winning summer.
He made headlines when December 2014 when selected as a substitute fielder for Australia's Test against India at the Gabba, taking a stunning catch at short leg to dismiss Varun Aaron.
The cricketing world appears to be at the feet of this talented Queenslander, who has been awarded an Australian contract for the 2020-21 season.
