England crimper Ollie Robinson was moving the pink ball and Australia struggled with a 1-3 position after six overs.

His first ball narrowly missed the stump, nibbling a length as the Aussie number three raised his arms to leave him.

Labuschagne returned a wry smile and Adam Gilchrist said: “I think Marnus just said it’s a little faster from you to Ollie Robinson.”

The English opener came in again and comfortably beat the next ball.

The imposing quick on his follow-up ran to the batsmen, giving the world number one a spray as Labuschagne chuckled at the crease.

“I also like the follow-up to Ollie Robinson, just a little glance,” Shane Warne said on the Fox Sports cover.

“Sorry, that would make my hair stand on end and say ‘man, you just worry about your batting champion and watch yourself go out on the vision screen on your way out’.”

On the next ball, Labuschagne lowered the wicket, stood up and placed the ball between the first and second slip.

The error did not turn out to be too costly, Labuschagne being sacked for 44.

The Australian number three stepped on his stumps and appeared to have slipped while playing a cross shot, exposing the three stumps which were rocked by the shot on target.
