New Delhi: County cricket is on its own in England these days. England Test team's new captain Ben Stokes and Australian spin all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne are also playing county cricket from different teams. The county championship division-2 is a four-day match between Durham and Glamorgan from May 12.
In the match, the Durham team lost the toss and came out to bat first, then Ben Stokes, who came out to bat at number six, faced Labuschagne of Glamorgan. Stokes was batting on 33 off 52 balls, when leg-spinner Labuschagne, who came on the bowling, bowled a short ball, which Ben Stokes could not handle. Labuschagne's ball hit Stokes' stomach directly and he fell to the ground. From here, Labuschagne first said sorry to him, then came to Stokes and returned, showing the ball in a funny way. However, after this, Ben Stokes also got up immediately and started stretching. The game was then resumed. The video is fast going viral on social media.
In the match, Durham batted first and scored 311 runs. In this, Ben Stokes scored 82 runs off 110 balls. Marnus Labuschagne bowled 8.3 overs in the match, in which he gave away 42 runs and did not get any wicket. By the end of the first day's play, the Glamorgan team had lost 2 wickets and scored 31 runs. Skipper David Lloyd (8) and Labuschagne (16) were at the crease.
