Marnus Labuschagne expects lots of cricket post COVID-19


Sydney: Australia’s middle-order batsman Marnus Labuschagne thinks that there will be a lot of cricket played in a short span of time once the sport resumes all over the globe.

The prolific top-order batsman in recent times also believes that the situation will not be the same and the players should get ready for a packed schedule to make up for the time lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“There is going to be a lot of tours that will need to be made up. There’s going to be a whole heap of cricket in a very short time frame. We’ll be making up for missed time, that schedule is just going to be packed,” he told the Australian press.

“It’s going to be a bit different from what we’re used to. We’re going to have to be ready coming out of this break to play heaps and heaps of cricket,” he added.

The 25-year-old is disappointed to see the English county season has also suffered as he felt his Glamorgan stint helped him get to become a better batsman and he feels that the entire cricket community should come together and do whatever possible to get the game going again.

“It’s very sad. I really enjoyed it last year. I loved Glamorgan, hence why I signed a two-year extension. It’s disappointing to see them and England cricket in trouble,” he said.

“It’s our responsibility, cricket on the whole, to make sure once this period is over that we get games on television and get the sport started again. We need to support each other,” he added.
