Ashes: Bizarre dismissal of Marnus Labuschagne sparks Meme Fest on Twitter | Cricket News


Marnus Labuschagne has sent social media into a frenzy after being dismissed in one of the most bizarre ways ever seen on a cricket ground. On day one of the fifth and final Ashes Test in Hobart, the Aussie striker decided to cross his stumps to aim for the opposing side. Stuart Broad immediately brought his experience to the fore and kicked the ball in, targeting the mid and leg stump. Labuschagne found himself in an absolute tangle as he attempted to kick the ball. He missed it completely and fell flat on the pitch as the ball raced into the stumps.

The dismissal made for hilarious viewing, with even the commentators unable to hold back their laughter.

Social media quickly buzzed, with Labuschagne’s sacking becoming the talk of the town. The dismissal was quickly immortalized by members on Twitter.

His own teammate, Travis Head, who was on the non-attacking side, said he was “looking forward to all the memes”.

So this is it. We’ve tried to round up some of the funniest ones for you:

Apart from his dismissal, Labuschagne played a huge role in bailing his side out of a precarious 12 for three. The right-hander scored a smooth 44 on just 53 balls. Head pursued good with Cameron Green giving him company.

Head was fired just after reaching his century while Green fell in love with a well-made 74.


On Day 2 Saturday Australia were knocked out for 303 with Mark Wood and Broad taking three wickets each.

England, however, again faltered with the bat and were in shock at 124 for six at tea on Day 2. Captain Pat Cummins took three wickets while Mitchell Starc and Scott Boland were also among the wickets.
