FANS were furious after Marnus Labuschagne suffered a rude awakening in Australia’s Test World Cup final against India.
Labuschagne took a nap while David Warner and Usman Khawaja opened the batting at the Oval in London.
But with just two runs on the board, India’s Mohammed Siraj left Warner behind.
The camera naturally cut to Australian No.3 Labuschagne, who appeared to have nodded off in the London heat.
The Australian was woken by the roar of the Indian fans and hastily grabbed his gloves, racquet and helmet before going out to bat.
The fans reacted stunned to Labuschagne’s faux pas.
One fan joked, “If you keep hitting snooze, you realize you have to be out of the house in 10 minutes.”
Another said: “Labuschagne slept peacefully, Siraj took a wicket and the man had to wake up immediately 😭”
A third added: “Marnus is sleeping. Almost certainly he dreams of cricket. Nobody in the world loves cricket like Marnus.”
While a fourth said: “Well that woke him up. Lively!!”
