Marnus Labuschagne on his hundred: ‘Better than I feel like it’s ever been’

“I didn’t get greedy, took the runs on offer, and really wasn’t rushed or flustered”

Marnus Labuschagne believed he had never played better than when compiling his century on the second day of the Sheffield Shield final against New South Wales.

Labuschagne finished the day unbeaten on 160, his third century of the season against the Blues and his fourth of the competition, during what was a chanceless display against an attack including three of Australia’s regular Test quartet.

“Maybe not even ever,” Labuschagne said when asked if he had played a better innings this season. “Just the way I played, my tempo, today was better than I feel like it’s ever been. I didn’t get greedy, took the runs on offer, and really wasn’t rushed or flustered and really played to my game.

“Look, I’m not going to say best ever, but it’s up there with one of the better ones I’ve played.”
