Marnus Labuschange was involved in a banter with Shubman Gill during the day two of the ongoing third Test between Australia and India at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Labuschagne was heard on stump mic enquiring about Gill’s favourite player. “Who’s your favourite player?” Labuschange asked. Gill, who was more focused on his batting, replied “I will tell you after the match.” However, Labuschagne went further with his query and asked was it Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli. “After the ball... Sachin? Do you reckon Virat?” he said. Curious Marnus Labuschagne Asks Shubman Gill About His Favourite Cricketer, Mentions Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli; Gets Stunning Reply From Young Indian Opener (Watch Video).
