by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Watch: Shaheen Afridi dismissed Marnus Labuschagne for the seventh time in first-class cricket, trapping him lbw during a County Championship clash between Middlesex and Glamorgan.

The Pakistan quick had eaarlier dismissed Glamorgan’s Labuschagne in the first innings of the clash, following which the Australian took his revenge and dismissed Shaheen with a leg-break in Middlesex’s innings. In the third innings, the fast bowler was back in action and claimed the wicket of Labuschagne once again.

The fifth ball of the 18th over of Glamorgan’s second innings saw Shaheen trap the batter lbw for 23 much to the Australian’s dismay, who seemingly pointed to his bat to indicate that there had been an inside edge. It was the fifth time that Labuschagne was fallen to Shaheen in the last seven innings, having earlier been dismissed by the speedster thrice during the recent Test series between Australia and Pakistan.


Middlesex went on to win the game by an innings and 82 runs.
