Australia’s young player Marnus Labuschagne has extended his contract with Glamorgan County Cricket Club to 2022. Marnus Labuschagne had previously signed a two-year deal with the county. But the county season was postponed due to Covid-19 and in such a situation it has been decided that he will not come to England for the 2020 season.
On extending the agreement with the club, the right-handed batsman said,
“It was an easy decision to extend my contract for another year and commit to Glamorgan and Wales long term. I was gutted not to be returning to Glamorgan for the 2020 season after I loved my first year here. So I’m delighted to be re-committing myself to the club for the next couple of years,”

In 2019, Labushan scored 1114 runs for county championships, including five centuries and five half-centuries. During this time, his average was 65.
County Cricket Director Mark Wallace on this applauded Marnus and said,
“It’s a sign of Marnus’ character that he had no hesitation in extending his deal. And that he’s been keen to do so since we realised that he wouldn’t be able to come over and play for us in 2020.
He’s committed to what we are trying to achieve here at the Club. And it’s a sign that we are heading in the right direction when one of the best players in world cricket is committed to returning to and staying with your club.”
