Should Australia be concerned about Marnus Labuschagne’s away Test record?

Not too long ago, Marnus Labuschagne was top of the tree in the ICC Men’s Test batting rankings. Following a lean run of form, he has now dropped down to third spot, with his overseas record in the spotlight.

Labuschagne’s career average stood at a whopping 60.82 halfway through December 2022. However, over the next seven months, he has endured a steep decline.

He currently averages 53.81 in Test cricket; still quite impressive but a fair drop in a short space of time. Scoring runs at close to 54 is praiseworthy, and more so when it is done 41 matches and 72 innings into a career. But, is Labuschagne the Test batting great he is already made out to be?

Statistics often tell the story. With some context applied to Labuschagne’s Test numbers, one can conclude he is not at an elite level yet. He is, indeed, an incredibly talented batter, but there is something missing that separates him from the top Test batsmen.
