Ashes 2023: Marnus Labushen Claims – Joe Root’s Ultra-Aggressive Approach Gave Australia Opening At Edgbaston:

The second Test match of the Ashes series will be played from Wednesday i.e. 28 June at the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. In the first Test of the series, Australia won a spectacular victory by 2 wickets.

In such a situation, now England will try to make a strong comeback in the second Test.

Meanwhile, Australia batsman Marnus Labuschagne believes Joe Root’s aggressive approach helped him in the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston.

Ashes 2023: Marnus Labushen Claims:

Ashes 2023: The right-handed batsman felt that Root would have got him out at Edgbaston if he had not taken an overly aggressive approach.

Root was the best performer for England in the opening Ashes Test, scoring a brilliant century in the first innings. The Yorkshire batsman scored 46 runs in the second innings.

Labushen said that, from my point of view, he is playing that way and those shots are keeping us in the game. I use that second inning as an example.

He probably had a chance to bowl us out and take the game away from us completely, but the manner and the way he was playing kept us in the game.

That said, Root played an incredible innings but in the end, he scored 40, and if he had converted that 40 into more than 80, we would have been chasing 300.

So, I think the way they are playing is in our favor. He said, ‘He is playing attacking cricket, and he is doing it in a different way, which is great, but it brings other opportunities for us.

England set the visitors a target of 281 for victory, which Australia achieved with two wickets to spare.

Labushen further said, ‘They were very unusual dismissals compared to the way I usually play, so I was very disappointed with myself for getting out like this and asked myself the question’.

Why did I hit those balls? Played. He said, ‘If there is something like this, I can make sure that it does not happen again, tactically or technically.’
