Test cricket sometimes unfolds unusual scenes in the duration of five days but it becomes weirder than ever when a part-time spinner switches to a medium pace. Marnus Labuschagne pulled a bizarre trick out of his hat bowling medium pace instead of his usual leg spin to amaze Tagenarine Chanderpaul.

While hosting the Test series against West Indies, Australia are dominating the visitors in the first match after declaring the first innings on 598/4. Marnus Labuschagne has been the star of the match so far, scoring a double hundred in the first innings and following it up with a century in the second. Apart from playing a spectacular blitz from the bat, Labischagne also produced a memorable moment with the ball. 

Tagenarine Chanderpaul was facing the 29th over of the innings and was looking in good nick. However, Labuschagne came up with an unusual trick of bowling medium pace. The no. 1 ranked Test batter usually bowls leg-spin but he switched to a different bowling style against the batter. Add to that, he bowled a short delivery and the batter was shaping up to the pull but was shocked by the bounce. Chanderpaul had to duck the delivery in order to prevent it from hitting his helmet. 

The sharp bouncer surprised everyone including Chanderpaul and there was a wry smile on his face highlighting the surprise element of the act. Twitteratis were also amazed by Labuschagne delivering the bouncer like a specialist bowler and lauded the cricketer. 

Marnus can do anything!
