Disappointing not to get us over the line - Marnus

11 Jun 2021 | Cricket

A valiant 93 not out from Marnus Labuschagne could not prevent Glamorgan from falling to a four-run defeat against Gloucestershire in their opening Vitality Blast match of the season.

Making his T20 debut for the Welsh county, Labuschagne hit 10 fours and two sixes in his 56-ball knock, but after posting a T20 career-best and almost carrying his side to victory, he was still 'evaluating' his innings to see where he could have picked up the extra runs which could have taken Glamorgan to victory. 

"I'm still thinking about where I could have found those extra five runs and taken the game on a little bit more," said Labuschagne.

"I'm evaluating that so I know when I'm in that situation again I can get us over the line.

"Pleasing to get some runs but disappointing not to get us over the line. I never doubted I could get a fifty in T20 cricket but for me it's about winning games with Glamorgan, Australia or Queensland.

"Early on my strokes weren't too different (to longer formats) but through the middle of the innings it looks a lot different in terms of targeting the right areas, it's a new and exciting challenge."
