Ashes: Marnus Labuschagne’s bizarre dismissal sparks meme

Marnus Labuschagne sent social media into a frenzy after he was dismissed in one of the most bizarre fashions ever seen on the cricket field. On the first day of the fifth and final Ashes Test in Hobart, the Australian batsman crossed his stumps and decided to target the on-side. Stuart Broad immediately brought his experience to the fore and hit the middle and leg-stumps to top the ball. Labuschagne found himself in a complete tangle while trying to flick the ball. He missed completely and fell on the pitch as the ball went into the stumps.

The dismissal was made for looking humorous, with even the commentators unable to contain their laughter.

Social media soon became the talk of the town with Labuschagne’s dismissal. The dismissal was soon immortalized by memes on Twitter.

His own teammate, Travis Head, who was on the non-striker’s end, said he was “looking forward to all the memes”.

So, here it is. We’ve tried to sum up some of the funniest things for you:

Apart from his dismissal, Labuschagne played a big role in saving his team 12 for three. The right-handed batsman played a fluent innings of 44 runs in just 53 balls. Head forwards the good with Cameron Green.

Head was dismissed just after reaching his century, while Green was dismissed for 74.


Australia were bowled out for 303 on the second day on Saturday, with Mark Wood and Broad taking three wickets each.

England, however, once again stumbled with the bat and were reduced to 124 for six at tea on the second day. Captain Pat Cummins took three wickets, while Mitchell Starc and Scott Boland were also among the wickets.
