Marnus Labuschagne can become a trump card for the Australian team : Only a few hours are left for the start of the ICC World Cup 2023. Preparations of all the teams have now been completed, the work of making strategy is going on. The ODI World Cup will start on October 5, i.e. a few hours from now. On the first day, the teams of England and New Zealand will face each other. This has been done because when the World Cup final was played in the year 2019, the biggest match took place between these two teams. Where England defeated New Zealand and captured the title. Meanwhile, the Australian team may have to play its first match after a few days, but before that it has got a match winner, about which no one might have thought much.

Australian team took full advantage of practice matches

Before the World Cup 2023, all the teams got two practice matches. While on one hand both the matches of Team India were washed out due to rain, on the other hand Australia got a chance to play both the matches. It is another matter that the first match played against Netherlands could not be completed due to rain, but the match against Pakistan was completed. Before this, Australia has also played a three-match ODI series against Team India. The player who has suddenly entered Australia’s World Cup squad is Marnus Labuschagne. When the squad for the World Cup was announced by Cricket Australia, Marnus Labuschagne was not in it. But before that, in the ODI series against South Africa, he suddenly comes into the team and dominates. Only after this, there was a possibility that he might be included in the World Cup squad. Meanwhile, Ashton Agar gets injured and in his place, Marnus Labuschagne enters the team as a replacement.

Marnus Labuschagne can make a big contribution to the team with bat and ball.
Although Marnus Labuschagne is known as a middle order batsman, he can also spin. In the practice match played against Pakistan, Marnus Labuschagne bowled and did wonders. Marnus Labuschagne bowled 8.4 overs and took three wickets for 78 runs. Ashton Agar also got a place in the team because he could prove to be effective on Indian pitches. Now Marnus Labuschagne will have to do the same thing. The practice matches that have been played so far show that the fast bowlers are not able to do much on the Indian pitches, in such a situation the key to victory will be in the hands of the spinners. The team whose spinners take wickets in the middle overs will be a bigger contender for victory.
