With a funny incident involving the Australia batsman on Day 3 of the World Test Championship (WTC) Final versus India at The Oval on Friday, Marnus Labuschagne became the focus of countless jokes and memes. In the beginning of Australia's second innings, Labuschagne was reclining in a chair inside the dressing room, and the camera captured him dozing off eventually. The dismissal of David Warner, however, interrupted his slumber, and as he was the next batter, he hastily prepared and hurried to the field. The incident generated a number of humorous memes and insightful responses from a large number of social media users when it went popular on the internet.
