Marnus Labuschagne is excited at the prospect of this winter’s Ashes Test with England
‘It’s so exciting to be back playing Test cricket and playing in the Ashes at home. I’m looking forward to the challenge.
‘Hopefully both teams are fully fit and we can have a really good contest.’
He added: ‘I’ve been in England without my family for three months and it’s not nice. We prefer people to be with their families. We’re not talking cricket right now. We’re talking about people’s well-being and families.
‘One thing we have realised with Covid is that things change quickly. I just hope things sort themselves out and families will be allowed to come.’
