I`m sure we are all hopeful of seeing Labuschagne in a daffodil again and what an excellent signing he turned out to be.
Yesterday added more evidence of his ability to deliver at Test Match level and on current form he is Australia`s 2nd best batsman which is pretty good coming behind Smith. I fear he is now central to Cricket Australia`s plans so they will be precious about how much he plays. I cannot see him being allowed a full summer over here. Of course they will be happy for him to have a couple of weeks over here before the next Ashes tour if so he can now command big money so those few weeks are more likely to be at the Oval.
I hinted at this a while ago. Labuschagne's stock has risen enormously, and I doubt he will ever play for Glam again. Too many big spending Counties will be dangling large carrots, which are sweeter than leeks.
He certainly proved the doubters wrong. " He's only faced second division bowlers. and that's why he scored runs so freely for Glamorgan ", was the oft heard comment. Well, he put that to bed. Good luck to him.
We can always claim he was made in Wales.
