Mitchell Starc gives ‘Mankad’ warning to Marnus Labuschagne in Sheffield Shield Trophy

  • Mitchell Starc warned Marnus Labuschagne to stay in his crease during a Sheffield Shield match.

  • Later, Labuschagne slammed a fantastic century.

Mitchell Starc and Marnus Labuschagne play for Australia in the international arena, but when it comes to Sheffield Shield Trophy– Australia’s domestic tournament – they are on opposing ends. Starc represents New South Wales (NSW), while Labuschagne plays for Queensland (QLD).

On Day 1 of the contest between NSW and QLD, Starc and Labuschagne were involved in an interesting banter. During the 49th over of QLD innings, Starc pulled out of his run-up after noticing that Labuschagne at the non-striker’s end was backing out of his crease before the delivery was being bowled.

Though Starc had a chance to ‘Mankad’ the batsman, but he settled by giving Labuschagne a warning.

Here is the video:

Earlier, in the morning session, Starc had taken Labuschagne by surprise after the speedster bowled a vicious bouncer that struck the batsman on his arm. Fortunately for Labuschagne, no harm was done as he walked away for lunch.

Apart from Labuschagne, wicket-keeper batsman Jimmy Pierson made a valuable contribution with 66 off 124 deliveries.

After two centuries in two innings, Labuschagne has become the leading run-scorer in the competition. He has amassed 284 runs at an outstanding average of 142.

When it comes to the standings, then Queensland are occupying the second spot with 8 points while New South Wales are at the fifth place with 2 points. Western Australia is currently heading the table.
