Batters always like to keep the scoreboard ticking across the formats but when they do struggle to score consistently, it usually ends up with their dismissal. The premier Australian batter, Marnus Labuschagne experienced the same fate as he was dismissed by the Indian all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja after bowling four consecutive maidens.

After struggling in the first couple of Tests against India, Australia has roared back strongly in the third Test during the passage of play that occurred so far. After the visitors lost Travis Head on a team total of 12, Marnus Labuschagne and Usman Khawaja stitched a partnership of 96 runs for the second wicket.

Marnus Labuschagne was set to play a big knock after settling on the crease but accurate lines from Ravindra Jadeja played a part in the batter’s dismissal. Jadeja was bowling the 35th over of the innings and he had bowled four consecutive maidens before that.

Laubschagne was facing the third ball of the over and Ravindra Jadeja bowled a slider in the fuller-length area. However, the batter was expecting the ball to spin away just like the previous delivery he faced but was deceived completely. As a result, the delivery breached his defense shattering the stumps.

Here is the video of the dismissal of Marnus Labuschagne:
