Australia vs Pakistan cricket score: Marnus Labuschagne’s dummy spat caught on camera

A furious Marnus Labuschagne was caught in the act when cameras followed him to the dressing room after he lost his wicket.

Marnus Labuschagne looked absolutely filthy after losing his wicket on day four of the Third Test against Pakistan and everyone could see how ticked he was.

The star hitter was caught sweeping square leg deep for 36 in Australia’s second inning as tourists piled on the runs before declaring and winning Pakistan 351, while staking out giving about four sessions to take 10 wickets.

Footage of Labuschagne returning to the locker room was shown on TV as he tossed his bat against a group of other Willow Chunks, clearly furious at the nature of his dismissal as the Aussies looked for quick runs to bolster their advance.

Upon seeing the clip, a TV commentator said Labuschagne was “disgusted with himself”.

Pakistan started confidently in pursuit of their 351-point goal in the series finale, heading to the stumps Thursday at 0-73.

Fly-half Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafique were unbeaten 42 and 27 respectively, leaving the home side needing a further 278 runs for victory in 90 overs, with all 10 wickets in hand when play resumes on Friday.

Australia skipper Pat Cummins declared his second set at 3-227 shortly after tea – a bold move given Pakistan went 7-443 chasing 506 to draw the Karachi Test last week .

The first Test in Rawalpindi also ended in a draw.

Australia were unlucky not to have shut out Shafique from the penultimate delivery of the day when Steve Smith couldn’t grab an edge of Labuschagne’s leg rotation who instead found the limit.

Shafique also survived referee Ahsan Raza’s decision to fall behind Nathan Lyon on the 13th as Australia’s efforts for an early wicket were in vain.

The highlight of Australia’s innings was an unbeaten 104 by in-form flyhalf Usman Khawaja, and Smith became the fastest man at 8,000 tries.

Pakistan-born Khawaja, who got a reprieve when Naseem Shah beat him on 31 without a ball, scored 496 points in the series, just 17 shy of Mark Taylor’s record 513 in 1998 – the highest against Pakistan in a three-game series, and the last time Australia visited that country.

Smith also had a memorable day, leading pacer Hasan Ali to cover the boundary to complete 8,000 runs in his 151st innings of his 85th Test.

In doing so, he broke Sri Lankan great Kumar Sangakkara’s record of reaching the milestone in 152 Test innings, achieved against India in Colombo 12 years ago.

Khawaja, who scored 160 in the second Test shot in Karachi, pushed spinner Nauman Ali for two to complete his 12th Test century before tea.

“It’s been a really good series for me,” he said. “Two hundred and some nineties, so it was fun and I enjoyed it.”

Khawaja doesn’t think Australia declared themselves too early.

“I have a belief that you need more time to get them out,” he said. “They played well, but we have 90 overs and they will have to push the pace which won’t be easy.”

Australia added 112 runs in the two sessions for the loss of David Warner (51) and Labuschagne as they looked for quick runs.

Khawaja went 123 for the opening wicket with Warner and then another 65 with Labuschagne, who was dropped on 11 off Sajid Khan before going to Nauman.

Earlier Australia scored early points as Warner opened with three limits in the second half of the day against pace spearhead Shaheen Shah Afridi.

He reached his 34th Test half in 123 minutes before left hander Shaheen uprooted his off-stump on 51 with a quicker delivery that swung away.

Warner’s shot included six fours and a six, but his stay at the box office also sparked some controversy.

Referees Aleem Dar and Ahsan Raza suggested that Warner, stepping out of his crease, encroached on an area of ​​the pitch that could scuff and help spinners later in the game.

He removed his helmet and gloves before becoming involved in a heated conversation with the referees. Pakistani skipper Babar Azam also joined in the discussion, pointing out the area Warner allegedly damaged.
