Australia batsman Marnus Labuschagne surprised Twitter with his weird way of leaving the ball. It reminded the Twitterati of Steve Smith, Labuschagne's teammate. The video was shared by Cricket.com.au on its official account. Marcus can be seen copying Steve Smith's batting mannerisms.
Australia and Pakistan are playing their second and last Test of the series at Adelaide Oval. Marnus had to come out to bat early after the Aussies lost Joe Burns on just 8 on the board on the first day of the Test.
Before rain interrupted the game on day 1, Marnus played 57 deliveries and he made fans realize his new technique. "The light saber leave is out in full force here #AUSvPAK," wrote cricket.com.au.
Some friends lauded Marnus while some saw it in another way. They felt he didn't need to copy someone else's technique while his own was doing well for him.
