The Australian team is just 1 trophy away from having all the ICC trophies to their name and the players are working hard to be ready for the challenge. Two of Australia’s best batters Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith are currently playing against each other in county cricket. While the two may not share the dressing room this time, playing in local conditions will definitely give both Marnus Labuschagne as well as Steve Smith good practice ahead of the WTC Finals.

Steve Smith is representing Sussex playing under the leadership of Cheteshwar Pujara whereas Marnus is playing for Glamorgan. Right after the WTC Finals, Australia has to face England in the much-awaited Ashes series. Speaking to The Age, Marnus Labuschagne highlighted the strengths of Steve Smith and what the young batter has learned from him. Steve Smith is one of the finest test players of this generation and his numbers across the world are a reflection of the same.

Marnus Labuschagne Believes Steve Smith Has “Freakish” Ability To Succeed

Marnus, mentioning the reason behind Smith’s success, explained that his ability to adapt as per the situation and mold his batting accordingly has worked well. “If you look at how he batted this summer against the West Indies and South Africa, compared to how he batted in the Ashes in 2019, they’re two polar opposite methods of batting. He has that freakish ability that he can find ways to have success regardless of how he plays. And that strength comes from the ability to recognize the situation, and being able to actually trust his game to just do it and play that way,” he said.

Speaking about Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne further added, “I think his main strength is his ability to assess the situation and come up with a solution. That’s one of the major things that I’ve learned from him.” During the last Ashes in England, Steve Smith was the highest run-scorer with 774 runs. Marnus concluded his chat by speaking about Jofra Archer. He acknowledged that the absence of the fast bowler will be a huge blow for the hosts.
