‘Marnus bettered: only by Bradman’ in another Test

The amazing start to Marnus Labuschagne’s Test career is reflected in another feat, taking just 51 innings to pass 3000 Test runs.

Only the beyond-compare Sir Donald Bradman (33 innings) stands above Labuschagne in an esteemed list of all-time greats, the MRF Tyres No.1 Test batter shows no sign of slowing down.

After passing a century late on day one of the day/night Test in Adelaide, Marnus marched to the milestone in effortless fashion, cashing in after seeing off the second new ball early on day two.

Batter Innings to 3000 Test runs
Sir Donald Bradman 33
Marnus Labuschagne 51
Sir Everton Weekes 51
Herbert Sutcliffe 52
Brian Lara 52


The work early meant Labuschagne matched West Indian Everton Weekes who also reached the mark in 51 knocks, edging Bert Sutcliffe and Brian Lara (both 52 innings), with the latter on hand to witness the achievement. Compared to other Australian players outside of Bradman, Labuschagne betters Neil Harvey (54 innings), Matthew Hayden (61) and the likes of Adam Gilchrist, Mike Hussey and Steve Smith (all 63).

Labuschagne fell to Devon Thomas to finish on 163, a third century in as many Test innings, combining in a 297-run partnership with Travis Head, who remained unbeaten on 172 when the teams walked off for the dinner break.Australia will likely push for a first innings declaration later on day two, and are in prime position to claim both a 2-0 series victory and 12 World Test Championship points on their path to a claiming a spot for the competition final in June 2023.
