Marnus Labuschagne’s Entertaining Encounter with Pigeons at MCG Delights Steve Smith, Check it out!



During the ongoing PAK vs AUS Boxing Day Test, Marnus Labuschagne found himself in a lighthearted mission to clear a group of pigeons comfortably perched just behind the non-striker’s crease. In a video shared by Cricket Australia, Labuschagne was captured sprinting to the non-striker’s end, playfully shooing away the pigeons with his bat. Meanwhile, Steve Smith couldn’t contain his laughter.

As for the cricket action, Australia witnessed a solid opening partnership between David Warner and Usman Khawaja. Warner departed just before lunch, and shortly after, Khawaja followed suit. As Day 1 progressed to the post-Tea session, Smith and Labuschagne took charge at the crease for the home side.
