1 min read

Australia No.3 Marnus Labuschagne suffered a finger injury from a short-ball attack by Pakistan’s fast bowlers during the first Test in Perth. Labuschagne was hit on the little finger of his right hand by a delivery from debutant Khurram Shahzad but continued to bat after receiving medical attention. However, he was soon dismissed for 2 runs. If Labuschagne misses the next Test, allrounder Cameron Green may replace him. Meanwhile, Australia’s top order faced a challenging time on the pitch, with Steve Smith enduring multiple blows on his arm from Shaheen Shah Afridi. Despite the tough conditions, Australia managed to reach stumps with a lead of 300 runs. Hazlewood praised Smith’s bravery but acknowledged the challenging conditions and the potential impact of the weather on the game.
