Marnus Labuschagne has named the best Indian batter and bowler he has come up against in his short, but promising international career so far. Recently, the South Africa-born batter took part in a Q&A session on Twitter, where he was asked about the best Indian batter and bowler he has played against. Replying to the question, Marnus named Test skipper Virat Kohli and veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin as the best Indian batter and bowler, respectively. “Best Indian Batter and Best Indian bowler you faced?” a fan asked. “Virat and Ashwin,” Marnus replied.

Marnus Labuschagne is currently with the Australian team for the ongoing five-match Ashes series against England.

Australia, under the captaincy of skipper Pat Cummins, have taken a 3-0 lead in the series ahead of the final Test in Hobart.

After winning the first three Tests in Hobart Adelaide, and Melbourne, respectively, the hosts were held to a thrilling draw by England in the fourth Test at Sydney.

Australia declared their innings at 416 for eight after opting to bat first. Usman Khawaja starred with a 137-run knock on return to Test cricket.
