Australian batsman Marnus Labuschagne notched up his 5th Test ton and his first against India on Day 1 at the Gabba. Earlier, Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane dropped a sitter to reprieve Labuschagne before he could even get to his fifty. The cricketer later rode on his luck and plundered an inexperienced Indian bowling attack to give Australia an early advantage in the series-deciding Test match.

India vs Australia 4th Test: Marnus Labuschagne continues fine Gabba run

Marnus Labuschagne has now leapfrogged the late Sir Don Bradman in terms of number of Test runs scored at The Gabba after three innings. The cricketer played his first Test at the venue against Sri Lanka in January 2019 where he scored 81. The right-handed batsman hammered another 185 against Pakistan later that same year to make it 266 runs at the Gabba in just two innings.

When Marnus Labuschagne reached the score of 61 against India on Friday, he overtook Don Bradman’s first three innings tally of 326 runs at the venue. Moreover, he even went beyond en route to slamming his 5th Test ton and his second at Australia’s fortress. Labuschagne was eventually dismissed for 108, thus extending his tally to 374 runs in just three Gabba innings.
