Marnus Labuschagne was awarded the Australian Test player of the year 2020. Having made his Test debut in 2018, 2019 was the year when he really made it big. He scored 1104 at 64.94 with three tons and seven half-centuries. He also scored his maiden double ton in the recently concluded Test series against New Zealand. Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar recently complemented the right-hander saying that he reminded the Little Master of his younger days. In August 2019, Labuschagne was the first cricketer to become a concussion substitute in a Test match at Lords, replacing Steve Smith and never looked back since then.
