Marnus Labuschagne stated, “It’s a series, and Australia, we dominated that series, take everything out of it, our job is to perform on the field. It doesn’t matter what the circumstances are externally. And we did that. Hopefully, we can continue to do that this series,” as quoted by The West Australian.

The Australian all-rounder also discussed the benefits of playing county cricket, highlighting the importance of consistent match practice and staying in rhythm. He emphasized that the back-to-back games in county cricket allow players to learn from actual match situations, rather than solely focusing on technical aspects during training sessions.

Labuschagne compared the scheduling differences between Australia and England, noting that in Australia, there is often a longer gap between games, which can lead to overthinking and tinkering with one’s technique. On the other hand, in England, players have a continuous schedule of matches, which helps in developing good scoring habits and maintaining a consistent approach.
