Australia is currently on a historic Pakistan tour. The first Test match of the series turned out to be very dull and ended in a tame draw. The wicket was completely flat and the bowlers had nothing to take the advantage of. As a result, the batters had a good time and there were a few good performances.

Marnus Labuschagne also had a decent run in the first inning as he scored 90 runs. The 27-year old has developed a major fan following across the globe with his consistent performances. He also has become a major part of the Australian team in the past few years. He also has many fans in Pakistan that showed up for the first Test in Rawalpindi.

Many of them put up banners with messages for him. A fan hilariously asked Pakistan to be beware of him as he will score a 100 despite calling ‘no-run’ all day. Notably, Labuschagne often shouts no run to warn his partner at the other end to stay inside the crease. And now, he has taken it to Instagram to respond to these messages for him by his fans.

“It’s been great to see all the signs in the crowd at Rawalpindi feeling very welcome,” he captioned his Instagram post.

Meanwhile, the first Test match turned out to be very dull despite close to 1200 runs being scored. The first two innings of the match prolonged for over four days as each team scored more than 450 runs. In the end, Pakistan batted through the fifth day without losing a wicket and Australia did not get a chance to bat again.

Speaking of the two matches that concluded this week, India vs Sri Lanka is the other match, Harsha Bhogle said that there is a need for more competitive games in Test Cricket.
